VCA McCormick Ranch Animal Hospital achieves high level of veterinary excellence

LAKEWOOD, Colo.— VCA McCormick Ranch Animal Hospital has again achieved the highest level of veterinary excellence following a thorough evaluation by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA). VCA McCormick Ranch Animal Hospital earned AAHA reaccreditation after a rigorous review of the hospital’s patient care, practice protocols, medical equipment, facility and client service.

Unlike human hospitals, not all animal hospitals are required to be accredited.

Accredited hospitals are the only hospitals that choose to be evaluated on approximately 900 quality standards that go above and beyond basic state and provincial regulations, ranging from patient care and pain management to staff training and advanced diagnostic services. AAHA-accredited hospitals are recognized among 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.

“I would like to congratulate VCA McCormick Ranch Animal Hospital on vigilantly keeping up with advancements in veterinary medicine and adhering to the Association’s high standards,” said Michael Cavanaugh, DVM, DABVP, AAHA chief executive officer. “They are clearly committed to doing their very best as evidenced by the hard work and effort they put into this voluntary process.”

Pet owners look for AAHA-accredited hospitals because they value their pet’s health and trust the consistent, expert care provided by the entire health care team. At AAHA-accredited practices, pet owners can expect to receive the highest quality care from well-trained, professional veterinary teams.

Only the top small animal hospitals in the United States and Canada have achieved accreditation by the Association. To maintain accredited status, VCA McCormick Ranch Animal Hospital must continue to be evaluated regularly by AAHA.

VCA McCormick Ranch Animal Hospital, located at 10380 North Hayden Road in Scottsdale, Arizona can be reached at 480-948-3873 or online at www.vcamccormickranch.com.
