    Another ENVISION milestone was achieved with the groundbreaking for the Sharp Grossmont Hospital Neurosciences Center. The Sharp Grossmont Hospital Neurosciences Center will be San Diego’s first single center of excellence for patients needing advanced neurosurgical, neurological and comprehensive-spine care.

    June 2022 - The Sherrie and Ron Auen Intensive Care Unit opens at Sharp Coronado Hospital

    June 17, 2022, marked the first milestone in the Campaign for Emergency and Intensive Care at Sharp Coronado Hospital. Leadership donors gathered outdoors for a ribbon cutting to celebrate gaining occupancy for the Sherrie and Ron Auen Intensive Care Unit (ICU). Less than a week later, the first patient was moved into the ICU. The comprehensive build-out of the state-of-the-art ICU on the hospital’s fourth floor, with its inherent privacy and picturesque views of the Coronado bridge and neighboring community, serves as the unit’s new home.

      Quote from Stephen Cushman

      Nearly, 20 years ago, the Cushman family made the largest single gift to the Sharp Memorial Outpatient Pavilion at that time. We believed in the project and the mission of Sharp and continue that commitment to this day. Today, we are continuing our family’s legacy to name the Emergency and Trauma Center at Sharp Memorial Hospital with our family’s largest single gift. I implore you to consider a gift that is transformational for you. We all can do something great for the health of our community that some may never know.
