Kevin Holland, senior construction manager at Henderson Building Solutions, has officially been accredited as a Certified Health Care Constructor (CHC). The credential is awarded by the American Hospital Association (AHA), a leading healthcare trade organization, to demonstrate expertise in healthcare construction. According to the AHA, CHC is vital given the potential risks posed to patients by construction projects at healthcare facilities.
CHC’s certification exam tests for knowledge of healthcare industry principles, financial acumen, and planning, design, and construction procedures. Comprehensive understanding of patient safety across a variety of topics is key to successfully passing. These include infection control, fire and life safety, utility interruption planning and mitigation, project risk assessments, security, and workplace safety.
“Congratulations to Kevin for pursing and earning the CHC certification, which isn’t easy and is becoming a requirement for providing construction services to many hospital systems,” said Steve Hancock, managing director at Henderson Building. “His achievement showcases our team’s dedication to delivering quality client experience and to making Henderson Building the most qualified choice for healthcare projects around the country. We’re looking forward to more of our experts obtaining this certification.”
Holland, who has been with Henderson Building for more than four years and has more than three decades of industry experience, expressed similar enthusiasm.
“I’m thankful for the support and encouragement of my colleagues as I worked to gain the CHC,” he said. “This credential gives an added layer of confidence to healthcare clients who entrust us to work on their buildings with minimal disruptions and without impacting patient safety. I’m looking forward to continuing to deliver the excellent services our team is known for.”
