Our History
The Hollywood Animal Hospital was originally built in 1947 by Dr. C.E. Dee and Dr. I.C. Frederickson on what was then the western edge of the City of Hollywood. The announcement of their practice at 2864 Hollywood Boulevard was sent to the community on November 1, 1947. The phone numbers at that time were Hollywood #1253, Ft. Lauderdale #862 and Miami # 7-7727.

VCA, Hollywood, Animal, Hospital, Pets, Vets, VeterinarianSince its inception, the HAH (as it is commonly referred to) has grown to include a staff of 22 doctors and more than 100 technical and support staff. These individuals have been selected, not only for their compassion and communication skills, but also for their appreciation of the special roles that pets play in our lives. In addition, a lifelong commitment to continuing education is an integral part of the philosophy of our medical staff.

Determined to provide the finest veterinary care, in 1950 we became a Certified Member Hospital of the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA). This voluntary veterinary organization sets high standards which member hospitals are required to maintain and continually upgrade. There are only 3,200 veterinary hospitals in the United States and Canada which have been awarded accreditation as an AAHA Member Hospital.
