Just as our name implies, at Savely Healthcare Architects (SHA), Healthcare Architecture is all we do. For the last 26 years Rick Savely, the founder of SHA, has developed long standing relationships with some of the top healthcare providers in the state of California. We have clients located in the southern and northern California Healthcare Community. Rick's reputation is built on integrity, respect, honesty and providing superior service.

Rick has had a seat at the table with hospital administrators to help navigate thru the complexities of planning for the healthcare of today and into the future. Understanding the intricacies of what goes into the healthcare environment is what this firm is all about. At SHA we will work hard for our clients but we will also find time to share a laugh.
