ST. CHARLES VETERINARY HOSPITAL HAS ACHIEVED THE HIGHEST LEVEL OF VETERINARY EXCELLENCE FOLLOWING A THOROUGH EVALUATION BY THE AMERICAN ANIMAL HOSPITAL ASSOCIATION (AAHA).
St. Charles Veterinary Hospital earned AAHA accreditation after a rigorous review of the hospital’s practice protocols, medical equipment, facility, and client service. Unlike human hospitals, not all animal hospitals are required to be accredited.
Accredited hospitals are the only hospitals that choose to be evaluated on approximately 900 quality standards that go above and beyond necessary state regulations, ranging from patient care and pain management to staff training and advanced diagnostic services. AAHA-accredited hospitals are recognized among the finest in the industry and are consistently at the forefront of advanced veterinary medicine. AAHA standards are continuously reviewed and updated to keep accredited practices on the cutting edge of veterinary excellence.
Pet owners look for AAHA-accredited hospitals because they value their pet’s health and trust the consistent, expert care provided by the entire health care team. At AAHA-accredited practices, pet owners can expect to receive the highest quality care from well-trained, professional veterinary teams.
Only the top small animal hospitals in the United States and Canada have achieved accreditation by the Association. To maintain accredited status, St. Charles Veterinary Hospital must continue to be evaluated regularly by AAHA.
WHAT IS AAHA, AND ITS ACCREDITATION?
