OHS Hospital Gets Top Marks
November, 2010: The Oregon Humane Society Holman Medical Center’s status as a top-ranked veterinary hospital was recently reaffirmed following a comprehensive evaluation and re-accreditation by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA).
The evaluation included a quality assessment review of the hospital’s facility, medical equipment, practice methods and pet health care management.
Only a handful of humane society hospitals have gained AAHA accreditation, and only 15 percent of all animal practices in the US and Canada are accredited.
Hospital Opened in 2007
The Holman Medical Center provides a full spectrum of medical care to shelter animals. In 2009, the OHS medical team performed more than 8,000 spay and neuter surgeries and nearly 800 elective and emergency surgeries. OHS veterinarians and staff, along with a full-time faculty member from Oregon State University, worked with 66 veterinary students from OSU last year who completed a mandatory two-week clinical rotation at the center. All medical care is provided with the best interests of the animal in mind.
The AAHA standards are continuously updated to keep accredited practices at the forefront of veterinary medicine and patient care.
