Boston, Mass., April 29, 2015 – Angell Animal Medical Center announced today that it has again received accreditation following a comprehensive evaluation by the American Animal Hospital Association. The evaluation includes a quality assessment review of the hospital’s facility, medical equipment, practice methods and pet healthcare management.
Only 12-15% of all small animal veterinary practices in the U.S. have achieved accreditation by the American Animal Hospital Association. In order to maintain accredited status, Angell must continue to be evaluated regularly by the association’s consultants.
“We are proud to belong to a select group of practices that are committed to meeting the standard of veterinary excellence,” said Ann Marie Greenleaf, Angell’s Chief of Staff. “AAHA hospitals pass a stringent evaluation of over 900 standards covering patient care, client service and medical protocols. By attaining accreditation Angell is demonstrating its dedication to offering the best care to its patients and clients.”
Established in 1933, the American Animal Hospital Association is the only organization that accredits veterinary practices throughout the United States and Canada for dedication to high standards in veterinary care. Approximately 3,500 AAHA-accredited practices pass regular reviews of AAHA’s stringent accreditation standards that cover patient care, client service and medical protocols.
