About Us

Twenty-five years ago, veterinarians in the Hudson Valley and surrounding areas managed their own emergencies or covered for each rotation.

Having dealt with balancing the emergency needs of patients and the busy routine of daily medicine and surgery, a group of over thirty concerned and caring local veterinarians met early in 1988 to deliberate and resolve the many dilemmas of after-hours care.

The AECHV was founded in 1989 and comprises two state-of-the-art equipped and staffed hospitals in Kingston and Poughkeepsie, New York.

As our name implies, we are strictly an emergency facility that meets your pet’s medical needs when your family veterinarian is unavailable. No appointment is necessary; however, if time permits, please call ahead so we may better prepare for your arrival. Because we work very closely with your family veterinarian, we aim to stabilize, support, and treat emergency patients until your regular veterinarian becomes available for transfer. In essence, we operate as an extension of your daytime practice.

Our highly trained veterinarians, licensed technicians, assistants, and receptionists will ensure that when you and your pet need us the most, we are here with the best!
