Rockbridge Oaks Receives IWBI’s WELL Health-Safety Rating
(Chattanooga, TN, Monday, December 19) – Solvere Living announced today that their managed assisted living and memory care community, Rockbridge Oaks, has earned the WELL Health-Safety Rating. Certified by the International WELL Building Institute (IWBI), the WELL Health-Safety Rating is an evidence-based, third-party verified rating for all new and existing building and space types focusing on operational policies, maintenance protocols, stakeholder engagement and emergency plans to address a COVID-19 environment now and beyond.
Designed for communities to take the necessary steps in order to prioritize the health and safety of their staff, visitors and stakeholders, the WELL Health-Safety Rating can help guide users in preparing their spaces for re-entry in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, instilling confidence in those who come through the building as well as the broader community.
“We are delighted to be partnering with the International WELL Building Institute and are excited to have achieved the Well Health-Safety Rating with them. It is an honor to be able to receive such a prestigious award for our community,” Katrina Adams, Executive Director.
In order to achieve WELL Health-Safety Rating, Rockbridge Oaks has implemented features such as Cleaning and Sanitization Procedures, Emergency Preparedness Programs, Air and Water Quality Management and Health Services Resources.
The WELL Health-Safety Rating provides a centralized source and governing body to validate efforts made by owners and operators. It leverages insights drawn from the IWBI Task Force on the spread of COVID-19 and other respiratory infections developed by the World Health Organization (WHO), U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), global disease control and prevention centers and emergency management agencies, as well as recognized standard-making associations such as ASTM International and ASHRAE, and leading academic and research institutions, as well as core principles already established by IWBI’s WELL Building Standard.
