GAGE ANIMAL HOSPITAL IS FULLY ACCREDITED BY THE
Gage Animal Hospital is proud to be a fully accredited American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) hospital. Unlike human hospitals, veterinary hospitals are not required to be accredited. Accredited hospitals are the only hospitals in the U.S. and Canada that choose to be evaluated on approximately 900 quality standards that go above and beyond basic state regulations, ranging from patient care and pain management to staff training and advanced diagnostic services.
The accreditation process is thorough and rigorous to ensure hospitals meet AAHA standards of accreditation, which include the areas of: patient care, diagnostic imaging, laboratory, pain management, pharmacy, safety, surgery, client service, anesthesia, contagious disease, continuing education, dentistry, examination facilities, medical records, leadership and emergency/urgent care. To maintain accredited status, hospitals undergo comprehensive on-site evaluations every three years, which ensures that hospitals are compliant with the Association’s mandatory standards.
Only 15% of small animal practices in the United States and Canada are AAHA accredited. Gage Animal Hospital is proud to be a member of that select group!
