About Our Organization
The Animal Medical Center, a non-profit veterinary center, has been a national leader in animal care since 1910. Our mission lies in promoting the health and well-being of companion animals through advanced treatment, research and education.
The AMC is home to the Elmer & Mamdouha Bobst Hospital, the largest and busiest veterinary teaching hospital in the United States, with its doors open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Our staff is comprised of over 80 veterinarians who utilize an interdisciplinary team approach combining expertise in more than 25 key specialties and services to care for your pets. These include some of the most advanced technologies and services available today, such as Interventional Radiology & Endoscopy, Oncology, Advanced Diagnostic Imaging & Radiology, Alternative Medicine, and many more.
Additionally, our Institute for Postgraduate Education attracts the best and brightest in the field to participate in our internship and residency programs. No other training facility compares in terms of the volume and variety of cases presented or the extent of exposure to veterinary specialists. Currently, approximately 15 percent of all board certified veterinary clinical specialists in the U.S. have spent at least one year at our Institute for advanced training. This remarkable achievement underscores The AMCís seminal leadership in advancing knowledge and expertise in veterinary medicine, and in shaping the field as a whole.
The AMC also offers numerous Community Funds, which are designated to assist clients who would not otherwise be able to afford care for their pets. These funds include the Patient Assistance Fund, which helps those who cannot afford urgent care; the Seniorsí Animal Veterinary Effort, which provides free or subsidized care to pets of our elderly clients; the Buddy Fund, designated to assist pet owners with cancer treatments; and The Monty and Minny Fund, which was created to provide rehabilitation services for pets whose owners cannot afford such care. We are also proud to offer the Frank V.D. Lloyd Fund for Guide Dogs, which provides free wellness and preventive veterinary care to all working guide dogs of clients who are visually impaired.
