Pillars of Excellence

Sharp HealthCare has adopted seven pillars of excellence as the foundation for its vision to transform the health care experience. The seven pillars — Quality, Safety, Service, People, Finance, Growth and Community — are a visible testament to our commitment in making Sharp the best health care system in the universe by achieving excellence in these areas.

Quality Quality — This pillar demonstrates how Sharp HealthCare improves clinical excellence to set industry standards and exceed customer expectations.
Safety Safety — This pillar keeps patients employees and physicians safe and free from harm.
People People — This pillar demonstrates Sharp HealthCare's commitment to create a values-driven culture that attracts, retains and promotes the best and brightest people, who are committed to Sharp's mission and vision.
Finance Finance — This pillar demonstrates Sharp HealthCare's commitment to achieve financial results to ensure Sharp's ability to provide quality health care services, new technology and investment in the organization.
Growth Growth — This pillar demonstrates Sharp HealthCare's commitment to achieve consistent net revenue growth to enhance market dominance, sustain infrastructure improvements and support innovative development.
Community Community — This pillar demonstrates Sharp HealthCare's commitment to be an exemplary public citizen by making a difference in the community and supporting the stewardship of our environment.

As a symbol of commitment to these pillars, nearly 1,000 Sharp leaders signed seven 8-foot-tall pillars, which are displayed in the lobby of Sharp's corporate offices in Kearny Mesa.
