As the busiest Emergency Department (ED) per bed in all of San Diego County, the ED at Sharp Chula Vista Medical Center sees approximately 50,000 patients every year. To improve care and reduce strain on staff, an expansion was begun in 2010 that resulted in 28 new licensed beds and 5,500 extra square feet of space. In addition, the project included a total redesign of the lobby, admitting and triage areas, as well as renovated space for Rapid Medical Evaluation.
The new Emergency Department features a number of upgrades, including: 24-hour care Expedited emergency care for minor injuries and illnesses using Rapid Medical Evaluation (RME), an express triage system, which reduces wait times to 40 minutes or less, with the ultimate goal of reducing them to 30 minutes or less High patient satisfaction scores An increase from 20 to 48 operational beds
