MEDVET HOSPITALS CONTINUE TO SURPASS VETERINARY STANDARDS
March 15, 2019
MedVet, a growing nationwide network of specialty veterinary hospitals is proud to announce its MedVet hospitals located in Cincinnati, OH; Columbus, OH; Dayton, OH; Hilliard, OH; and Lexington, KY; have once again achieved the highest level of veterinary excellence following a thorough evaluation by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA). Each of these MedVet hospitals re-earned AAHA accreditation after a rigorous review of the respective hospital’s practice protocols, medical equipment, facility, and client service.
Unlike human hospitals, animal hospitals are required to be accredited.
Established in 1933, AAHA is the accrediting organization for companion animal hospitals in the U.S. and Canada, but earning accreditation is no simple task. To be accredited by AAHA, a practice must be evaluated on approximately 900 benchmarks of veterinary excellence. AAHA-accredited hospitals are recognized among the finest in the industry and are consistently at the forefront of advanced veterinary medicine. AAHA standards are also continuously reviewed and updated, ensuring accredited practices remain on the cutting edge of the veterinary industry.
MedVet’s AAHA accreditation in these regions demonstrates the ability to provide an exceptional level of veterinary care for companion pets and client service. It also demonstrates the organizations’ commitment to being at the forefront of veterinary technology and medicine. Standards set by AAHA are widely recognized, and veterinary hospitals that are accredited are prominently different in methods and reputation than those that aren’t. MedVet is proud to be one of the less than 20 percent of veterinary practices to have earned this recognition.
Pet owners look for AAHA-accredited hospitals because they value their pet’s health and trust the consistent, expert care provided by the entire healthcare team. At AAHA-accredited practices, pet owners can expect to receive the highest quality care from well-trained, professional veterinary teams.
“Having AAHA evaluate our hospitals reinforces the best practices and procedures we maintain from a clinical standpoint every day. Additionally, being AAHA accredited aligns seamlessly with our mission of Leading Specialty Healthcare for Pets,” said MedVet CEO Eric Schertel, DVM, PhD, DACVS. “We are incredibly proud of our healthcare team’s commitment to delivering exceptional care and service to our patients, clients, and referral partners.” Maintaining these standards is necessary for each of MedVet’s hospitals, as they are reevaluated every three years.
