American Animal Hospital Association
Animal Medical Care, the only accredited AAHA Hospital (American Animal Hospital Association) in the Gainesville / Hall County area, has been certified since 2008. AAHA is the flagship organization that sets best standards and practices for veterinary hospitals. As an accredited hospital, Animal Medical Care is held to the highest standards in all areas of veterinary medicine and services. Our clinic meets the AAHA standards for management, procedures, cleanliness, and operational excellence. We are proud of AMC’s staff, who always go the extra mile to provide the very best.
AMC’s AAHA accreditation provides us with the best tools possible to care for your pet. AAHA hospitals undergo rigorous inspections every two years, including an examination of business management practices, medical procedures, and protocols. The inspection helps us know both what we are doing well and how we can improve in the future.
