Akron, Ohio (PRWEB) July 02, 2014
Scott Radcliff, AIA, ACHA, NCARB, LEED AP, project architect for Hasenstab Architects, has received the American College of Healthcare Architects (ACHA) Board Certification in healthcare architecture. This certification is earned by architects specializing in healthcare design.
Radcliff, who has been with Hasenstab Architects since 2009, has more than 12 years of healthcare design experience specializing in simulation design, pediatric and neonatal environments, and facility planning. ACHA certification has always been a professional goal of his, Radcliff said.
“Throughout my career, I’ve had the privilege to work alongside multiple members of the ACHA,” Radcliff said. “Through my interactions with each of them and their mentoring, I developed a great respect for their high level of expertise and passion for healthcare design. I consider it an honor to join them in their pursuit to improve healthcare environments.”
Radcliff has served as project architect for a variety of healthcare projects including Ashland University College of Nursing Simulation Design Center and the Ohio Department of Mental Health & Addiction Services Northcoast Behavioral Healthcare Campus Expansion. Most recently, Radcliff worked on the $180 million Critical Care Tower for Akron Children’s Hospital.
“My experiences working on projects at Akron Children’s have allowed me to refine my planning, design, detailing, and operational understanding of these types of facilities,” Radcliff said. “As both a parent and a healthcare architect, I empathize with the customers and bring a unique perspective to the design of neonatal and pediatric spaces.”
The ACHA provides Board Certification for architects who practice as healthcare specialists. In order to become ACHA certified, candidates must provide extensive documentation outlining their experience, multiple peer and client references, as well as pass a computer-based examination to demonstrate their skills and knowledge level.
