The American Society of Healthcare Engineers, ASHE, offers two professional certifications. One of those certifications is the Certified Healthcare Constructor, CHC. Per ASHE’s website, “The CHC certification program provides a national standard of requisite knowledge required for CHC certification; thereby assisting employers, the public and members of health professions in assessing healthcare constructors.” The eligibility requirements for the certification include a blend of education and healthcare-specific experience along with a timed 115 question exam and continuing education renewal requirements.
Given that BION’s focus is healthcare facilities, this professional certification is an excellent enhancement for our management. BION is proud that three of it’s staff members have achieved this certification and work diligently throughout the year to maintain the requirements. We believe that this professional certification is one of the many attributes that keeps BION current and aligned with the rigorous standards required of our healthcare clients.
The CHC is just one of many healthcare-related instruments that BION uses to keep our staff up to date on the latest healthcare construction practices, standards and codes. To learn more, contact us today.
