Have you ever wondered how your AAHA-accredited practice stacks up to other accredited practice across the U.S. and Canada? Put your practice to the test and apply to be the next AAHA-Accredited Practice of the Year!

Every year, AAHA recognizes and celebrates the outstanding achievements of accredited practice teams with the AAHA-Accredited Practice of the Year awards. The goal of these awards is to honor general and referral practices that go above and beyond to consistently display outstanding patient care and client service, and continually earn the admiration and respect of their peers.

The AAHA Awards Committee receives applications from top veterinary hospitals throughout the U.S. and Canada. Each team is evaluated on its most recent accreditation score, mission and vision, continuing education and training, community service, and more.

The 2019 AAHA-Accredited Practice of the Year and AAHA-Accredited Referral Practice of the Year awards will be presented at Connexity by AAHA in Indianapolis, September 12, 2019, and will include finalists in each category.

Ready to apply but looking for some wisdom on putting together your application? Dr. Ronald Hendrikson of 2011 AAHA-Accredited Practice of the Year Norwalk Veterinary Medical Center shares the following tip:

"Be sure and answer all the categories and questions, review information about the categories and requirements for submission, start early and make it a team effort to evaluate and improve."

What are you waiting for? Apply now for the 2019 AAHA-Accredited Practice of the Year awards – applications are due March 1, 2019.
