This is a multi-disciplinary department committed to providing high quality patient care and to making a difference in the lives of patients and their families’ pre and post-transplant. A national leader in organ and multi-organ transplantation, Sharp HealthCare's Transplant Program is committed to a high standard of quality care and personal attention. It is a commitment that begins long before the organ transplant and continues well beyond the operation. Sharp-affiliated surgeons have been performing heart transplants since 1985 — celebrating 25 years in October 2010 — and also perform re-transplant procedures. Sharp Memorial Hospital has participated in many lifesaving kidney donation chains, including one in 2011 that spanned the country with a record 60 participants. Sharp offers a live kidney donor program, which includes living related donation, living unrelated donation, paired donation, altruistic kidney donation and the donor exchange program.
Sharp Memorial Hospital — the first hospital in San Diego with all private patient rooms — is dedicated to providing the highest-quality, patient-centered care and consists of 368 beds . Designed to promote comfort and healing with the use of natural light and soothing colors, the hospital offers the latest medical technology and is home to San Diego’s largest, most modern Emergency and Trauma Center.
Sharp Memorial is known for outstanding programs in cardiac and vascular care, cancer treatment, orthopedic and neurological services, rehabilitation, robotic surgery and multi-organ transplantation, and has been recognized as a MAGNET®-designated hospital for nursing excellence and is also designated as a Patient-Centered Hospital by Planetree, an organization committed to personalizing, humanizing, and demystifying the hospital experience for patients and their families.
