Mike Trobaugh, project superintendent at Swansea, Illinois-based Holland Construction Services, has earned the designation of Certified Healthcare Constructor (CHC) by the American Hospital Association (AHA). The CHC is a national credential that distinguishes an individual as being among an elite group of 900 healthcare construction professionals in the nation.
The CHC certification program is designed to provide an objective and rigorous assessment of broad-based knowledge in healthcare construction. An individual must satisfy eligibility requirements that incorporate a blend of education and associated healthcare-specific professional experience, agree to adhere to the professional standard of conduct and pass the CHC certification exam.
Trobaugh is the second Holland employee to achieve CHC certification. In addition, six Holland employees have received a Healthcare Construction (HCC) certificate from the American Society for Healthcare Engineering (ASHE, a membership group of the AHA). The ASHE HCC certificate shows these employees have been trained to work in the healthcare construction environment.
Holland has built a strong reputation in the healthcare market completing over 50 projects throughout southern Illinois and the St. Louis metro area, including projects for BJC HealthCare, Memorial Hospital, HSHS St. Elizabeth’s Hospital, Southern Illinois Healthcare Foundation and SSM Health, as well as many oncology care providers and medical office buildings for physician’s groups.
