We are proud to be one of the 15% of veterinary hospitals in America who belong to the American Animal Hospital Association. What does being an AAHA hospital mean? It means we allow an inspector to come into our hospital to evaluate our medicine, medical records, surgery suite, protocols, and so on. They look at everything to make sure our hospital is top-notch. When Dr. Joi had her first AAHA inspection at Tequesta Vet Clinic, the inspector planned to spend the day at our hospital. She was done by 9:30 am. She commented that it was the quickest inspection she had done in her 12 years of hospital inspections. When Dr. Joi says she is Type A, she means it!
We proudly support the AAHA for all the protocols and research they do for our profession. It is the AAHA that provides the standards of care for veterinary medicine and guidelines. Developed by experts in the profession, AAHA guidelines provide cutting-edge information and frequent updates that help veterinary professionals face the demands of a continually shifting industry to ensure pets receive the best possible care.
