Giving Pets the Care They Deserve
Animal Medical Center of Chandler has been caring for pets of Arizona since 2014. Since then, we have wanted nothing more than to provide our patients and clients with the best possible care. This led to our decision to seek accreditation with the American Animal Hospital Association—better known as AAHA. We are pleased to now be one of the less than 20% of veterinary practices in the U.S. and Canada to be an AAHA-accredited veterinary hospital.
What Is AAHA?
AAHA is a renowned veterinary organization that was established more than 80 years ago to set the standard for quality veterinary care for animal hospitals. It is also the only accrediting organization for companion animal hospitals in the U.S. and Canada. Since its inception, AAHA’s mission has remained the same: to help veterinary professionals manage their practices and offer their services more effectively. To accomplish this goal, AAHA developed a list of over 900 veterinary benchmarks, which are referred to as the Standards of Excellence in veterinary medicine. Veterinary practices can choose to undergo a thorough inspection to prove that they maintain compliance with these standards, which include the following areas:
- Diagnostic testing
- Facility cleanliness
- Internal medicine
- Record keeping
After each veterinary practice demonstrates that it meets AAHA’s guidelines, it earns AAHA certification and can continue to be evaluated every few years to maintain this status. Our Chandler veterinary hospital has been accredited since we first opened our practice in 2014.
What Accreditation Means for YOU
Animal Medical Center of Chandler’s voluntary decision to become accredited demonstrates our devotion to pets and “their people” in and around Chandler. We uphold AAHA’s benchmarks with our state-of-the-art services and equipment, so you can be confident that your companion will be treated with professionalism, compassion, and diligence.
