About Sharp HealthCare

Sharp HealthCare stands on the cutting edge of health care delivery in Southern California. The system of not-for-profit hospitals and healthcare facilities is the San Diego area's largest. The network includes four acute-care hospitals (Sharp Chula Vista, Sharp Coronado, Sharp Grossmont, and Sharp Memorial) and four specialty facilities for women's – more... care, psychiatry, and chemical dependence. It also operates two physician medical groups and a number of urgent care and outpatient facilities and clinics. With some 1,700 beds and about 2,600 physicians, Sharp HealthCare offers a full array of health care services, including cancer and cardiac care, fertility and maternity services, and surgical procedures.

The system began as a single hospital in 1955, named for a local pilot who died in WWII. Among the recognition it has received over the years is the prestigious Malcolm Baldrige award in operational excellence in 2007, making it the first health care system in California to land the prize. Sharp has also done pioneering work in heart surgery in the region. In addition, it operates its own health plan, the only commercial, locally based one in the area. The Sharp Health Plan is a not-for-profit HMO serving tens of thousands of members in and around San Diego. 

Among Sharp's acute care hospitals, Sharp Grossmont, which serves eastern San Diego County, is run by Grossmont Hospital Corporation, a subsidiary holding a 30-year lease to manage the facility. One of the system's specialty operations, Sharp Mary Birch Hospital for Women & Newborns, claims to deliver more babies than any other hospital in California. Sharp's two medical groups are Sharp Community and Sharp Rees-Stealy, which between them comprise more than 1,100 doctors providing both primary and specialty care.

Sharp's net revenue has continued at a slow-and-steady pace, trending upward from $1.8 billion in 2006 to $2.5 billion in 2011.

In 2011 the system made plans to double the capacity of Sharp Chula Vista Medical Center's emergency department at an approximate cost of $12 million. – less
