AAHID has added a pathway to sit for the CHID exam. Read more about what qualifies you and how you can sit here.
Whether you’re a healthcare interior designer looking to boost your professional credibility and help advance the field; or someone looking for a highly qualified healthcare interior designer to join your team, you’ve come to the right place. AAHID’s Certified Healthcare Interior Designer (CHID) credential recognizes excellence, commitment, and knowledge of this complex discipline.
Committed to creating the best environments for healthcare delivery, Certified Healthcare Interior Designers are the most qualified to ensure the health, safety, and welfare of patients, residents, and staff in hospitals, clinics, and residential care facilities.
We value partners who transform the healthcare environment into one for healing, improving outcomes and maximizing efficiency.
Virginia is a very reliable and creative consultant able to interpret complex client needs and find elegant solutions of lasting value. She is a pleasure to work with and understands the various issues associated with healthcare interior design.
Virginia has brought to a hospital system, a design that works for both the patients as well as a visual effect. She is professional to work with & understands the needs of her clients.
Virginia did a remarkable job on our new 25,000 sq. ft. facility here in Stuart. Her keen sense of design has won numerous compliments from all our visitors over the last year.
I would like to take this moment to highly recommend VIrginia for her high level of professionalism and work ethic as the President at Interior Solutions Inc. She is extremely thorough in anything we have asked her to do and her quality of work is impeccable.
We have been very fortunate to work with Virginia on a few different projects and she and her team at Interior Solutions have done an outstanding job in all aspects of Interior Design and Project Management. She has always met her schedules and is a pleasure to work with.
We at CAG, have had the opportunity to develop a great business relationship with Virginia and look forward to continuing to work together with her on many future endeavors.
The reason I pursued the CHID exam was to have tangible evidence confirming my knowledge of healthcare and hospitals. It’s one thing to say that I’ve spent 30 years inside a hospital and have worked with over 70 different departments within the hospital, but it’s another to have my clients write letters on my behalf and endorse my efforts! It has served me well, especially when a potential client asks what I had to do to achieve those letters beside my name.
If a designer is interested in standing out their career, I suggest taking the exam.
“My passion for healthcare design has led me to AAHID, and I felt that its mission is in line with my career path and I had to be a part of it. So I completed the required credentials by obtaining the NCIDQ certification in 2011, and passed the CHID exam in the spring of 2013. Although I am passionate about residential and commercial design projects, I believe that my true calling is in healthcare design; Creating healing environments that promote safe mobility and independence to patients give me true satisfaction, knowing that I am making a difference in someone’s life by improving their living spaces”.
