Sharp Mesa Vista Hospital
Sharp Mesa Vista Hospital is the largest private psychiatric treatment hospital in San Diego County, and a recognized leader in exceptional care for those suffering from behavioral and mental health challenges. In addition to a full range of inpatient and outpatient programs, Sharp Mesa Vista offers access to clinical trials, which are vital to developing new and more effective treatments for mental health conditions.
To further the Sharp Mesa Vista mission of providing the very best mental health care to our San Diego community, the ENVISION Campaign aims to raise $10 million in support of several modernization projects throughout the hospital to include the Shiley Intensive Care Unit. It is at the Shiley Intensive Care Unit that our most critical patients with co-occurring physical and mental illnesses are treated and stabilized to promote their path to healing and wellness. This project will provide much-needed spaces for patient therapy, patient-staff consult, patient stay and an enhanced and centralized nurses' station for interdisciplinary collaboration. Sharp Mesa Vista provides evidenced based cognitive behavioral programming, treating adults experiencing anxiety, depression, suicidal ideation and other emotional or behavioral problems. These enhancements will help to ensure that mentally fragile patients are afforded the greatest chance for success post-discharge.
