Oradell Animal Hospital

In 1961, Dr. Anthony Palminteri and Dr. Gary Johnson joined forces to start Oradell Animal Hospital in a little house where they saw patients in the living room and performed surgery in the kitchen. In the same year, the Hasbrouck Heights location opened, expanding our reach. Dr. Palminteri's dedication to excellence led him to become the first veterinary surgeon in New Jersey to pass the rigorous DACVS exam in 1968, setting a high standard for specialized care. By 1969, OAH outgrew the little white house and acquired a building on Kinderkamack Road in Oradell. Drs. Stockman and Lucker, who were known from the ASPCA hospital in Manhattan, are brought on board to lighten the load. 

Throughout the 1970s, Oradell Animal Hospital emerged as a leader in cutting-edge veterinary medicine and surgery, attracting national attention and invitations to lecture. The 1972 accreditation by AAHA solidified their commitment to excellence. In 1979, they initiated an internship program aimed at training new graduates and ensuring round-the-clock care. This initiative has seen over 350 interns pass through its ranks, many of whom are now esteemed veterinarians within the hospital. As demand grew, additional locations were established, including Fort Lee in 1994.

The culmination of their expansion efforts came in 2003 when Oradell Animal Hospital relocated to a sprawling 36,000 square foot facility in Paramus, NJ, accommodating a growing team of boarded specialists and practitioners. Their commitment to excellence was further underscored in 2013 when they were designated as a Veterinary Trauma Center, solidifying their reputation as pioneers in the field of veterinary care.
