Sunset Whitney Veterinary Hospital receives accreditation
Sunset Whitney Veterinary Hospital of Rocklin has again received accreditation following a comprehensive evaluation by the American Animal Hospital Association. The evaluation includes a quality assessment review of the hospital’s facility, medical equipment, practice methods and pet health care management. Only 15 percent of all small animal veterinary practices in the U.S. have achieved accreditation by the American Animal Hospital Association. In order to maintain accredited status, Sunset Whitney Veterinary Hospital must continue to be evaluated regularly by the association’s consultants. “Sunset Whitney Veterinary Hospital belongs to a select group of practices that are committed to meeting the highest standards in veterinary medicine,” says John Tait, DVM, AAHA president. “AAHA hospitals pass a stringent evaluation of over 900 standards covering patient care, client service and medical protocols. By attaining accreditation, Sunset Whitney Veterinary Hospital is demonstrating its dedication to offering the best care to its patients and clients.” Established in 1933, the American Animal Hospital Association is the only organization that accredits veterinary practices throughout the U.S. and Canada for dedication to high standards of veterinary care.
