On December 5, 2014, District Veterinary Hospital gained American Animal Hospital Accreditation. Our hospital is one of the youngest hospitals to ever achieve accreditation. We built the hospital with the goals and ideals of AAHA in mind – we want to provide the best medicine possible, deliver the best service and be a model for veterinary general practice medicine. While achieving accreditation was our goal – it is also a journey that is continual: with every appointment, with every surgery and with every client interaction, the standards are used and improved upon. We pursued AAHA accreditation as a tool to strive for continued excellence.
AAHA standards also help protect your pet. They are guidelines for anesthesia, surgery, cleanliness, medical records and almost every aspect of veterinary medicine and client care. AAHA accredited hospitals are inspected and adhere to these standards.
