New employees are welcomed onto the Team, and given considerable opportunity for cross training so that they can begin to develop their own career paths within the company. We expect everyone to participate fully in the work involved in making medicine and doing all the tasks associated with growing a successful business. Traditionally, teams of people have worked together to solve problems as they come up. Everyone's expertise and effort is needed to help us succeed. We've made a commitment to enabling our employees to continue their education, both on the job and in the classroom, because we understand that as they grow, so grows our business.

Our Benefits Package
The generous benefits package we offer includes competitive wages and salaries at all levels, as well as a complete range of quality health benefits to protect our employee and their families. In addition we offer a substantial savings and retirement program to help them plan for a financially secure future. Full-time and part-time employees on our Team are eligible to participate in our benefit plans, which include:

  • Comprehensive group medical, dental and vision coverage for employees & dependents
  • Coverage includes a variety of alternative health care options
  • Prescription drug coverage with a mail order program

  • Life, accident and disability insurance
  • Paid vacation and personal time off plans
