BUILDING LASTING RELATIONSHIPS
Healthcare and AEC professionals across the state rely on The Stahl Companies for expertise in project management, code interpretation, and Agency liaison.
The Stahl Companies is my "go to" company when Northern California Presbyterian Homes and Services needs to facilitate an understanding with OSHPD. They have come through for us in various situations. We were among the first Skilled Nursing Facilities in California to use wireless nurse calls. Stahl Companies was instrumental in negotiating the project approval process with OSHPD. Additionally, Stahl Companies assisted us in negotiating acceptable scope with OSHPD when we wished to make our 50 year-old SNF more ergonomically responsive for our older patients.

We in the long-term care industry answer to many governmental agencies, and to understand and even dialogue with these labyrinthine bureaucracies is virtually impossible without the help of professionals. I've tried handling this on my own and even with the help of generalist architects and engineers and have ended up with substantial professional fees and little relief. The members of the Stahl team "speak state," know the codes and standards and know when to ask, "show me (in the code) where it says my client has to do that." I won't approach OSHPD or similar agencies anymore without the aid of the Stahl Companies.
Crestwood Behavioral Health, Inc.
RBB Architects Inc. has worked with The Stahl Companies continuously for 6 years beginning in 2003. Our first experience was at the St. John's Regional Medical Center in Oxnard, CA. The Stahl Companies provided Project Management services under contract with Catholic Healthcare West. Under the leadership of Walt Stahl, The Stahl Companies provided on site representation for an arduous hospital remediation project that required detailed attention to the construction phasing to maintain hospital operations and minimize impacts. Their field team developed and maintained an excellent rapport with the Director of Facilities, Director of Nursing, and the Hospital Administration.
The Stahl Companies provided excellent leadership at both the executive level and field stewardship. Principal involvement was hands on and effectively guided the day to day operations. In addition to the primary project management tasks, The Stahl Companies also performed in the role of Construction Manager on a number of peripheral remodeling projects that involved the hospital interiors and imaging rooms.
Working with The Stahl Companies was always about team work and team building. A great partnership was developed that we expect to carry forward into other projects.

Stahl’s team of Project Managers was proactive in helping me manage my risk by identifying issues before they became disruptive to my projects. They had a knack for getting all the players to work together to find solutions that maintained the team’s camaraderie and kept my projects running smoothly.

Woodland Healthcare has used The Stahl Companies for the past several years. We have found their experience with interacting and working with OSHPD invaluable. They have ensured that our organization remains compliant to regulatory standards and have monitored and managed complex projects ensuring that they come in on time and on budget. They are able to bring levels of skill and experience not typically available in healthcare organizations.
