Animal Hospital Receives AAHA Accreditation
[Plantation, FL] Lakeside
Animal Hospital of Plantation Florida 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 health care
Only 15 percent 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, Lakeside Animal Hospital must continue to be evaluated regularly
by the association's consultants.
"Lakeside Animal Hospital belongs to a select
group of practices that are committed to meeting the standard of veterinary
excellence," says Gregg Takashima, DVM, AAHA president. "AAHA hospitals pass a stringent
evaluation of over 900 standards covering patient care, client service and
medical protocols. By attaining
accreditation, Lakeside Animal Hospital 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 U.S. and Canada for dedication to high standards of
veterinary care. Approximately 3,200 AAHA-accredited practices pass regular reviews of
AAHA's stringent accreditation standards that cover patient care, client service and
medical protocols. For pet care information or referral to an AAHA-accredited practice, visit www.healthypet.com.
