Press Room

Welcome to the American Animal Hospital Association Online Press Room! This is where members of the press can access the most up-to-date news and information from AAHA.

AAHA is the only organization that accredits small animal hospitals in the United States and Canada. Unlike human hospitals, veterinary hospitals are not required to be accredited. Accredited hospitals are the only hospitals that choose to be evaluated on approximately 900 standards that go above and beyond basic state and provincial regulations. Accredited hospitals are recognized among the finest in the industry, and are consistently at the forefront of veterinary medicine.
