We enjoy American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) accreditation as AAHA partners with us, giving us the tools to meet established criteria for the best practices in veterinary medicine, promote safety in the hospital and create loyalty. We care about these things because we want to do what we do best – extend and enhance the quality and duration of pets’ lives for the people in the community we love!


Today AAHA serves approximately 5,500 practice teams in the U.S. and Canada, over half of which are accredited, comprised of more than 50,000 veterinary care providers. AAHA has established a reputation for its dedication to professional development, hospital accreditation standards, and excellent education programs.

AAHA is the only organization that accredits veterinary hospitals throughout North America and Canada. Accreditation is not mandatory; in fact, only 12% of veterinary hospitals are currently AAHA-accredited. The AAHA accreditation standards are considered the highest standards in companion animal care and are routinely reviewed and updated to ensure they remain consistent with advances in veterinary medicine.

Winslow Animal Hospital works hard to meet the standards of quality which AAHA sets. To learn more about AAHA accreditation, click here.
