What is an ACCESS Specialty Animal Hospital?
It’s in our name. When your pets are sick or injured, treatment usually begins with your veterinarian. Occasionally their patients (your pets) require a referral for Advanced Critical Care, Emergency, and/or Specialty Services. (A.C.C.E.S.S.)
At ACCESS, our emergency trained doctors, board-certified veterinary specialists, and veterinary nurses provide the diagnostic evaluation, treatment, and 24-hour care only available in a state-of-the-art animal hospital with interconnected technology enabling real-time collaboration between medical teams to provide the highest level of pet care.
When your injured or sick pet needs a higher-level of assessment and treatment, this is where we shine. Years of study, hands-on experience, and collaboration between doctors, all help provide unique, and exceptional medical care.
World-class veterinary science, medicine and care for your pets.
We know a visit to a veterinarian can be stressful. This is why we recruit approachable people who are smart, courteous and empathetic – and driven to make your time with us as comfortable as possible.
Best-in-class client service to help ease your visit.
The primary goal of any animal hospital is efficient and effective patient care. This is why we asked experienced doctors for input on every stage of the project – from planning to construction – and it has made all the difference.
A purpose built specialty animal hospital, designed by doctors.
Our more than 20,000ft2 specialty animal hospital is equipped with cutting-edge, brand new equipment, including a 1.5 Tesla MRI, 64 slice CT, four Snyder oxygen cages, Fukada telemetry, high flow nasal oxygen, critical care ventilator, a full IDEXX in-house lab that includes catalyst, procyte, vetstat, sedivue and coag analyzers, as well as the new IDEXX digital cytology that enables us to receive two-hour stat cytology reports 24 hours a day. We also have a thromboelastograph analyzer and a radiometer blood gas machine, plus state-of-the-art ultrasound and endoscopy equipment. Of our four large operating rooms, one is equipped for minimally invasive surgery, and another for fluoroscopy. Our emergency room and ICU are in separate areas with the ER having its own operating room for minor procedures.
Technology for 21st century veterinary care.
Owned by veterinarians.
Because ACCESS – Palm Beach County is owned by experienced, hands-on veterinarians with big hearts, and not by large, national corporations, you’ll find a level of veterinary care driven by a genuine love for animals — along with a warm, approachable, and compassionate level of client service.
We’re here for more than just your pets. Like our firefighters, teachers, human doctors and nurses, local government services and others, we are honored to be part of the Palm Beach (and South Florida) communities.
This is why we’d like to introduce Kami Kreaps, our Hospital Liaison, who has the awesome role of helping us connect with our referring veterinarians, planning and attending local events, supporting our community, and generally finding ways to help make Palm Beach County one of the best places to own and love a pet. Be sure to say hi when you see her!
