Tyndall Air Force Base Veterinary Treatment Facility

8/7/2008 - TYNDALL AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. -- Tyndall Air Force Base Veterinary Treatment Facility of Tyndall AFB 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, Tyndall Air Force Base Veterinary Treatment Facility must continue to be evaluated regularly by the association's consultants.

"Tyndall Air Force Base Veterinary Treatment Facility belongs to a select group of practices that are committed to meeting the highest standards in veterinary medicine," says Anna Worth, VMD, AAHA president. "AAHA hospitals pass a stringent evaluation of over 900 standards covering patient care, client service and medical protocols. By attaining accreditation, Tyndall Air Force Base Veterinary Treatment Facility 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. Approximately 3,000 AAHA-accredited practices pass regular reviews of AAHA's stringent accreditation standards that cover patient care, client service and medical protocols.
