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 better serve these patients, the ED is undergoing a $12 million expansion, which began in November 2010, that will more than double its current capacity and increase its size from 8,000 square feet to 14,500 square feet, as well as provide a more comfortable atmosphere for patients and their loved ones.
This expansion, made possible thanks to generous donors, caregivers and volunteers, as well as the Sharp HealthCare organization, will occur in three phases and is anticipated to reach completion in early 2012. Once complete, the new ED will feature a number of upgrades, including:

As part of this phase, the ED's entrance, lobby and triage and admitting areas have all been renovated. In addition, interior painting, flooring and cabinetry are close to completion.
