The American College of Healthcare Architects (ACHA) has announced that Terry D.B. Wilson, AIA, ACHA, EDAC, LEED AP, senior health planner at HDR, and Dave Redemske, RA, ACHA, CCHP, health planning principal at HDR, have earned board certification in healthcare architecture, joining 18 of their colleagues in the achievement.

In order to earn the certification, architects must pass the accredited examination that assesses understanding of healthcare architecture, as well as submit data-heavy portfolios to document and outline their experience. Six letters of recommendation from clients and peers are required.

"We’re very proud that Terry and Dave received this recognition as national specialists in healthcare architecture," said Jim Atkinson, AIA, ACHA, EDAC, LEED AP, vice president and director of health planning at HDR.
