Sharp Chula Vista Medical Center Emergency Department sees over 70,000 patients every year.  Currently, we run 4 private care rooms and 48 patient beds 24 hours a day.  The ED at Sharp Chula Vista Medical Center, which underwent a massive expansion and redesign that finished in 2012, is one of the most efficient, modern and advanced emergency care centers in all of San Diego County.  In addition, the project included an expedited emergency care for minor injuries and illnesses using Rapid Medical Evaluation (RME), an express triage system.

Sharp Chula Vista Medical Center is a 343-bed hospital with the largest array of health care services in San Diego's South Bay. A Designated Planetree Person-Centered Care Hospital, Sharp Chula Vista is home to the region's most comprehensive heart program and as well as offering exceptional services for orthopedic care and women and infants. The Douglas & Nancy Barnhart Cancer Center offers patients the most advanced treatment technology, a unique healing environment, and an extraordinary level of care. 

Sharp Chula Vista Medical Center has been providing health care to San Diego's South Bay community for more than 70 years. Now we are on a journey to go beyond, building a next-generation hospital in our binational region. The new hospital tower at Sharp Chula Vista combines clinical excellence with thoughtful consideration to provide the best level of care to the community we're privileged to serve. The new hospital tower is the first new Sharp hospital in San Diego’s South Bay in more than 40 years. The tower includes seven stories, a 197,000-square-foot hospital. 

As part of Planetree designation, the new hospital includes: 

  • All-private patient rooms designed with safety and privacy as priorities, including 10 intensive-care suites
  • 6 operating rooms (including 1 hybrid Operating Room)
  • Redesigned main entrance and lobby
  • Rooftop café with indoor/outdoor dining with panoramic ocean views
  • Additional space for support services including a pharmacy and kitchen 

On the main floors, patients receive quality care in large, private rooms; a new-intensive care unit features high-tech suites for lifesaving care. In our spacious, new operating rooms, surgeons perform cutting-edge procedures for cardiology, radiology, and more. A versatile hybrid operating room can shift quickly from a catheterization procedure to surgery. Located at the top of the hospital is an indoor/outdoor café featuring panoramic views, from the ocean to the mountains
