Today is the first annual AAHA-Accredited Hospital Day and South Bay Veterinary Hospital is honored to be able to participate in the celebrations! The American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) has designated this day as an opportunity to educate pet owners about what accreditation means for their pets and to thank accredited hospitals for holding themselves to a higher standard. AAHA-Accredited Hospital Day will be held each year to celebrate champions for excellent veterinary care.
The mission of AAHA-Accredited Hospital Day is to highlight the exceptional care provided by AAHA-accredited hospitals and to educate pet owners about the value of accreditation. Only 12–15 percent of veterinary hospitals in the United States and Canada are AAHA-accredited and we are so fortunate to be in that top percentage of hospitals that can say they hold such an accreditation.
AAHA-accredited veterinary hospitals are home to leading pet health care teams. AAHA has been recognizing veterinary hospitals for their commitment to maintaining high standards of care for more than 80 years. To be eligible for AAHA accreditation, hospitals must pass a 900-point evaluation that assesses safety protocols, equipment, veterinary knowledge, and other fundamental areas of pet health care.
