I was the Senior Vice President at Tarzana Hospital from 1989 to 1994. Butland Corp. was a
sole source contractor for American Medical International (AMJ) from 1983 until 1988 at which
time AMI decentralized their construction program from the corporate office to the hospitals. As
Senior Vice President, one of my duties was to administer the construction program for the
hospital and E. H. Butland Corp. was an important part of our construction program at that time.
I have personally worked with Ted Butland and his employees and found them to be very
knowledgeable, reasonable and responsive. Many of the employees at E.H. Butland that I
worked with ten years ago are still with Butland today. The managed care delivery system that
we all are working with and the resultant recession in hospital capital spending have made it
difficult for hospitals and the contractors that work for them. The fact that E.H. Butlund Corp
met the challenge and remained focused on hospital construction is, in my opinion, to their
Prior to the founding of OSHPD in 1983, E.H. Butland completed many projects in the hospital
under the jurisdiction of the City of Los Angeles. Since 1983 OSHPD grew in size and
sophistication and E.H. Butland grew with them. E.H. Butland has kept current with all the rules
and regulations along the way. They are knowledgeable about the system, work with it and do
not fight it.
Projects successfully completed by E.H. Butland at Tarzana Hospital include the Invitro-Fertilization Laboratory, Kidney Lithotripter Addition, Emergency Room Addition, Radiology, Expansion, Surgery Expansion, Med/Surg Unit Renovation, Skilled Nursing Renovation and the Women’s Center/ Auditorium.
Everyone at E.H. Butland is qualified to work on an OSHPD project. Over the years they have
earned my respect and have proven to be a “can do” company. I have worked with hospital
contractors from all over California and some from out of State. There are distinct advantages to
working with a local contractor. I highly recommend Ted Butland and E.H. Butland Corp. for
