NVA™ is the largest private owner of freestanding veterinary hospitals.

NVA owns more than 1000 veterinary hospitals and pet resorts in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Singapore. We have over 14,000 veterinary professionals that improve the well-being of patients by providing progressive and compassionate veterinary care. Our 4,000 veterinarians provide a full range of medical and surgical services.

NVA was founded in 1996 by Stanley Creighton, DVM with an emphasis on supporting local medical standards as established by individual hospitals and practitioners. He believed that veterinary medicine is best practiced when veterinarians craft their own hospital and community specific strategies for high quality patient care and client services.

The vision continues at NVA as we make available the tools and resources for hospitals to achieve their medical goals while avoiding any single standardized national plan that might not be the best fit for an individual hospital. The tools and resources include our national medical database, training and education for staff, and any emerging nationally published research and standards. Managing veterinarians decide what level of medicine they would like their hospital to achieve, and NVA will support them in getting there.
