SCHAEFER has been in business since 1954, successfully performing medical and healthcare construction and renovations under the watchful eye of Jim Schaefer (2nd generation), and with Eric Schaefer (3rd generation) actively managing many of our healthcare projects. We're a Certified Healthcare Constructor (CHC), and we’ve successfully partnered with national companies such as Adventist Healthcare, Atria, Covenant Care, Golden Living, Kindred Healthcare, etc., and numerous hospitals, many of whom we’ve worked with over 25 years!

We know the importance of effectively addressing indoor air quality issues in today’s facilities, and our Project Managers are certified through KSHE – Kentucky’s Society of Healthcare Engineers. As a healthcare facility contractor, we stay abreast of the most effective techniques and equipment available, and work hand-in-hand with a facility's Infectious Control Nurse to develop the appropriate ICRA Matrix (Infectious Control Risk Assessment Matrix) to ensure we comply with the facility’s strict air quality standards. We realize these sensitive areas demand the utmost control of construction site dust particles.

We arm our construction team with the education and equipment necessary to keep our clients' facilities clean and healthy, by providing the following items, when necessary:

–Barrier walls around the perimeter of all construction spaces

–Negative air machines

–Trash chutes or covered trash cans

–Air lock rooms

–Air monitoring devices

We're highly experienced working in occupied spaces, and are intimately familiar with the various Life Safety Codes which are so critical in each facility. Our Environmental, Health and Safety Programs help prevent injuries and minimize environmental impacts. 
Our crews understand these facilities represent someone’s home, and they respect the resident’s privacy, value their safety, and conduct themselves professionally and respectfully at all times, EVERY time.
