We are excited to announce that Matthew Gavette, a designer in HOLT’s Healthcare Studio earned his Evidence-Based Design Accreditation and Certification (EDAC) from The Center for Health Design.
The internationally recognized EDAC program awards credentials to individuals demonstrating the ability to apply an evidence-based process to healthcare facility design, including measuring and reporting results. In order to receive an EDAC Certification Matthew Gavette had to pass a five section exam that tests on evidence-based design in healthcare, the research process, the pre-design process, construction, and occupancy. The Center for Health Design uses EDAC Certifications in order to improve health outcomes, patient experience of care, and provider/staff satisfaction and performance.
