Vanguard Skin Specialists is a mission-driven practice, committed to making a positive impact on our patients, our community, and our world. Since our founding in 2009, Vanguard has made a commitment to take care of patients like family to make our communities better. For this reason, Vanguard has spent over a decade filling our offices with professionals who share our values of integrity, humility, and excellence.
In 2021, Vanguard was awarded #1 Large Company to Work for in Colorado Springs. The Gazette Best Workplaces recognition is in partnership with the Colorado Springs Chamber of Commerce and EDC, and each year they recognize local businesses that provide a safe, happy, and engaging environment for their employees.
Not just the Best Dermatologist or Best Plastic Surgeon
To win as Best Dermatology Practice or Best Plastic Surgery Practice to work for would be a great honor, but to win as Best Workplace across all industries in Colorado Springs is particularly meaningful to the Vanguard team. This award is through employee nomination and surveys. For the past three years, Vanguard Skin Specialists has been one of the top three, and we’re honored to win #1 this year.
What Working at Vanguard Means to Our Team Members
Jessie Stanek, clinical manager at Vanguard, shares her thoughts about the Best Workplace award:
“I’m really thrilled to see Vanguard named the top place to work,” Jessie writes. “It’s a phenomenal group of people who I am so glad to know and work with. It’s a special thing to be surrounded by a team that genuinely cares about the patient experience from start to finish—from the first phone call to the check-in process to the appointment and the last contact with our billing department. This is a group that truly cares about making it the best experience possible. You can’t get that without a team who loves what they do and where they work.”
Vanguard Skin Specialists strives to offer the best dermatology and plastic surgery care, as well as contribute to the community. Through our non-profit programs and the support of local charities, we dedicate our practices to those common goals. Vanguard also provides its team members benefits such as paid time off, 401K with employer match, health insurance, dental and vision coverage, enrollment in our continuing education fund, access to personal seminars like Financial Peace University and Family Life Marriage Conference, and a chaplain care team for your family.
This dedication to our team is summed up perfectly by Vanguard Skin Specialists’ practice manager, Ashton Radcliffe. “At Vanguard, our team is dedicated to providing dermatology and plastic surgery patients with excellent care and making sure they have a great experience. The truly wonderful thing about our team though is that we are just as dedicated to each other. I have never worked in a place where the staff is so willing to sacrifice in order to ensure that their teammates are happy. I’ve never been more proud to be a part of any team as I am a part of this team!”

Vanguard Music Video. We take fun seriously. Every year, we create a music video that premieres in December. It’s our Christmas gift to patients. This year, we kick it Vanilla Ice style to Mohs Mohs Baby.
