Lombard Animal Hospital Receives AHAA Accreditation
May 11, 2012
Lombard Animal Hospital of Portland, Oregon, has again received accreditation following a comprehensive evaluation by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA). 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 AAHA. In order to maintain accredited status, Lombard Animal Hospital must continue to be evaluated regularly by the association's consultants.
Established in 1933, the AAHA is the only organization that accredits veterinary practices throughout the U.S. and Canada for dedication to high standards of veterinary care. "Lombard Animal Hospital belongs to a select group of practices that are committed to meeting these standards of veterinary excellence," says Gregg Takashima, DVM, AAHA President. "AAHA hospitals pass a stringent evaluation of over 900 standards covering patient care, client service and medical protocols. By attaining accreditation, Lombard Animal Hospital is demonstrating its dedication to offering the best care to its patients and clients."
Lombard Animal Hospital, located at 607 NE Lombard Street, has a long-standing history of over 30 years as an accredited practice member. Dr. Preston Turano and Dr. Nell Ostermeier have continued this tradition as husband and wife owners/veterinarians for the last 4 years. Together they offer an integration of Modern Western Veterinary Medicine, Acupuncture and holistic healthcare for pets. For more information go to www.lombardanimalhospital.com.
