Animal Emergency Clinic of the Hudson Valley (AECHV) was founded in 1989 and is comprised of two, state-of-the-art equipped, and staffed hospitals located in Kingston and Poughkeepsie, New York. The hospitals are community founded and supported by the local general practice community. They are an exclusively emergency clinic and are equipped with ventilators, cardiac monitoring, in house laboratory and ultrasound and dedicated support staff.
AECHV is comprised of two hospital locations, located in Poughkeepsie, NY and Kingston, NY. Both are in the scenic Hudson River Valley, which sits midway between the metropolis of New York City and the regal capital of Albany. Designated as a National Heritage Area, the valley is steeped in history, natural beauty, culture, and a burgeoning food and farmer’s market scene. Among many attributes, it’s the oldest wine-producing area in the country, and the magnificent scenery inspired artists whose works became the Hudson River School of Painters.
