Banfield, The Pet Hospital of Portland, Ore., has named Jeffrey Klausner, DVM, Dipl. ACVIM, as senior vice president and chief medical officer.

As such, Dr. Klausner will be responsible for driving the medical direction of the practice and helping Banfield veterinarians “deliver the highest quality of veterinary medicine.” He is also working to inspire other veterinarians to join Banfield.

Klausner joined the practice in March as vice president of professional relations and government affairs, where he remains responsible for building and strengthening relationships with universities and national veterinary organizations.

Prior to Banfield, Klausner was the president and chief executive officer for The Animal Medical Center in New York City.

“As a medical and academic leader in the veterinary profession, Dr. Klausner’s years of experience will be instrumental in furthering our mission of providing high quality of veterinary medicine through patient outcomes,” said John Payne, president and chief executive officer of Banfield. “As our practice continues to grow and evolve, it is even more important that we continue to deliver on our promise—Dr. Klausner has the knowledge, experience and passion to guide the direction of medicine within our practice.”
