|Tuesday, April 23, 2013|
Providence Animal Hospital & Pet Resort has achieved the highest level of veterinary excellence following a thorough evaluation by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA). Providence Animal Hospital & Pet Resort earned AAHA accreditation after a rigorous review of the hospital’s practice protocols, medical equipment, facility and client service. AAHA is the only organization in the United States and Canada that accredits companion animal hospitals based on standards that go above and beyond state regulations. The Association is an international organization of 6,000 veterinary care teams, comprised of more than 45,000 veterinary professionals, who are committed to excellence in companion animal care. Established in 1933, the Association is well-known among veterinarians for its leadership in the profession, high standards for veterinary practices and pet health care, and most importantly, its accreditation of companion-animal practices. The AAHA Standards of Accreditation, viewed as the standard of veterinary excellence, contain more than 900 individual standards, divided into 19 sections. These areas of focus include: patient care and pain management, surgery, pharmacy, laboratory, exam facilities, medical records, cleanliness, emergency services, dental care, diagnostic imaging, anesthesiology and continuing education. Only the top small animal hospitals in the United States and Canada have achieved accreditation by the Association. To maintain accredited status, Providence Animal Hospital & Pet Resort must continue to be evaluated regularly by AAHA.
The award winning hospital was honored in 2011 by ImproMed Infinity as the second most green friendly animal hospital in the United States. Providence Animal Hospital & Pet Resort, located at 113 Belinda Parkway - just down from Two Rivers Ford, can be reached at 553-2221.
