About Us

Sharp HealthCare is a not-for-profit integrated regional health care delivery system based in San Diego, Calif. Sharp includes four acute-care hospitals, three specialty hospitals, two affiliated medical groups and a health plan, plus a full spectrum of other facilities and services.

As San Diego’s health care leader, Sharp has an unwavering commitment to excellence and passion for caring. At the forefront of Sharp’s commitment to excellence is The Sharp Experience, a sweeping performance improvement initiative launched in 2001. This initiative has resulted in numerous advances in clinical outcomes, patient safety enhancements and organizational and service improvements.

Sharp was named a recipient of the 2007 Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award and was the first health care system to be named a gold-level award recipient by the California Council for Excellence (CCE) for the California Awards for Performance Excellence (CAPE) program, the state-level affiliate of the Baldrige Award, in 2006. 

Sharp’s passion for caring is shared by our 2,600 physicians, including more than 1,100 physicians in our two affiliated medical groups — Sharp Rees-Stealy and Sharp Community Medical Group — and more than 16,000 employees. Together this team is working to make Sharp San Diego’s best place to work, the best place to practice medicine and the best place to receive care.
