VECCS Level I Certified Facility
The Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Society (VECCS) now offers a certification program to veterinary facilities that provide emergency and critical patient care. Through this program, VECCS recognizes those hospitals that meet and exceed minimum standards and guidelines. Their goal is to raise the standard of care and increase public and professional awareness in veterinary emergency and critical patient care.
This certification program identifies three levels (I through III) based on facility operating hours, equipment and personnel. Avets is ranked as a level I facility.
According to VECCS, “A Level I emergency and critical care facility is a 24 hour acute care facility with the resources and specialty training necessary to provide sophisticated emergent and critical patient care. This facility is open to receive small animal emergency patients 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. The level I facility must have a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care employed full time and available for consultation either on-site or by phone 24/7.”
