Opus Healthcare® Leaders Earn CHC Credentials


​At Opus Healthcare, we make it a priority to understand how healthcare systems operate, so we can help our clients plan for and respond to the continually evolving needs and demands of the industry.

Recently two Opus Healthcare leaders, Bob Steffel, director of project management, and Jed Field, senior project manager, earned Certified Healthcare Constructor (CHC) credentials.

Administered through the American Hospital Association and the American Society for Healthcare Engineering, CHC is an objective, rigorous assessment of broad-based healthcare construction and regulatory compliance knowledge for an increasingly competitive marketplace. To earn certification, an individual must satisfy eligibility requirements that include:

  • a blend of formal education and professional experience in healthcare;
  • adherence to the American Hospital Association Professional Standards of Conduct and
  • passing a certification exam that covers healthcare industry fundamentals, the process of planning, designing and constructing healthcare facilities, facility safety and infection control requirements and financial stewardship.

Bob Steffel is a 30-year construction industry veteran who oversees project management and field teams for Opus Healthcare. With more than 15 years of experience in healthcare facility management, design, and construction, Jed Field works with partners to manage projects from conception to completion.

With deep knowledge and expertise in the healthcare industry, the Opus Healthcare project management team delivers safe, holistic, state-of-the-art facilities for our valued clients.
