Planning is underway for the second annual AAHA-Accredited Hospital Day! Is your accredited hospital gearing up?

The mission of AAHA-Accredited Hospital Day is to annually highlight the exceptional care provided by AAHA-accredited hospitals. In 2016, AAHA designated the day as an opportunity to educate pet owners about what accreditation means for their pets and to thank accredited hospitals for holding themselves to a higher standard.

Need celebration ideas? Check out these tips from accredited practices:

  • Rent a popcorn maker and attach a “Did you know?” fact to each bag before handing them out to clients. For example, “Did you know? Only 12–15% of veterinary hospitals in the US and Canada are accredited.”
  • Ask your local bakery to print (or pipe!) the AAHA logo on cookies or a cake. You can download the file from aaha.org/publicity.
  • Grab clients’ attention on social media by sharing photos of patients on an AAHA table mat.
  • Tell clients what AAHA accreditation means to you through communications like emails, social posts, and newsletters.

Visit the Publicity Toolbox to download free resources you can use in planning your celebration, including social media images, celebration tips, printable posters, and more.
