Modernization of Sharp's central San Diego hospitals

The modernization of the medical campus — home to Sharp Memorial Hospital, Sharp Mary Birch Hospital for Women & Newborns and Sharp Mesa Vista Hospital — will provide critical upgrades to meet patient care needs.

The project will infuse the medical campus with new and enhanced clinical facilities and services; advanced medical and information technology; capacity to care for the growing community; and ease of access for patients throughout San Diego.

New patient tower

Anchoring the modernization is a new, seven-story tower for patient care. The tower — which will meet modern earthquake safety requirements mandated by the state — includes 152 beds in advanced medical, surgical and intensive units as well as new radiology, lab and cardiology departments.

Union-built project

Sharp HealthCare is proud to support unionized trade labor. In fact, 94% of the estimated labor hours for this project will be performed by union-affiliated firms.

Our general contractor, McCarthy Building Company, is a union firm, and nearly 30 local union-labor subcontractors have committed to this project — providing hundreds of jobs for San Diego construction workers over the next 10 years.
