On August 11, Ridgewood Veterinary Hospital achieved the highest level of veterinary excellence following a thorough evaluation by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA). Only 12% of all the animal hospitals in the U.S. and Canada achieve this level. Ridgewood Veterinary Hospital upheld its AAHA accreditation after a rigorous review of the hospital’s medical care, practice protocols, medical equipment, facilities and client service in both the Ridgewood and Midland Park offices.
Accredited hospitals are evaluated voluntarily on approximately 900 quality standards that go above and beyond basic state regulations, ranging from patient care and pain management to staff training, medical records, and advanced diagnostic services. AAHA-accredited hospitals are recognized as the finest in the industry, and are consistently at the forefront of advanced veterinary medicine. AAHA standards are continuously reviewed and updated to keep accredited practices on the cutting edge of veterinary excellence.
AAHA-accredited hospitals earn trust due to the consistent, expert care provided by the entire health care team. To maintain accreditation, Ridgewood Veterinary Hospital must uphold all the standards and continue to be evaluated regularly by AAHA.
