Our Practice

Cornell Center Animal Hospital was originally established in 1996 by Dr. Greg Stanchfield, who felt the desire to bring high quality animal health care services with a friendly, hometown feel to the Portland, OR area. The goal was to go beyond the same old veterinary services and provide people and their cherished pets with something that was different. He wanted to make trips to the vet a positive experience for everyone. It is this very concept that drives everything we do at CCAH, and the reason so many local pet parents trust us for the care and treatment of their beloved four-legged family members.

Our hospital is state of the art, and features everything necessary to provide our patients with a lifetime of quality care. We are staffed with a team of highly skilled veterinary professionals who truly believe that the most important component of quality veterinary care is the relationship we forge with each client and patient we serve. Getting to know you and your pet is something we place as our highest priority, because we feel it’s the best way to develop and implement the most personalized and effective health care plan to keep your companion happy and healthy throughout his or her life.

Our patients – which include dogs, cats and pocket pets, as well as the occasional bird and reptile – have access to a broad range of comprehensive medical, diagnostic, dental and surgical services as well as up to date technology, modern equipment and cutting edge treatment options. We’re a proud member of the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA), a title we’ve held for over a decade. We feel that this designation demonstrates our unwavering commitment to excellence in everything we do.

Cornell Center Animal Hospital offers a number of benefits to our valued clients and the animals they love, including:

  • AAHA accredited since 1999
  • Professional and friendly practice with personable staff
  • Over 20 years of experience in small animal and emergency medicine
  • Locally owned and operated for a more personal touch

At CCAH, above all else, we strive to make your pet’s experience with veterinary care a positive one. We always go above and beyond to make you both feel welcome and comfortable; never rushed; always heard. We want to be more than just your family vet. We want to become your trusted partner; the resource to whom you turn for all of your pet care needs, from puppy and kittenhood, on through the golden years, and for every moment and milestone along the way.

We look forward to welcoming you and your furry friend in our clinic soon!
