Sharp Coronado Hospital Envisions the Future of Health Care in Coronado
When the doors of Sharp Coronado Hospital opened in 1938, its founders wanted to bring a community asset to the residents of Coronado to provide quality health care, close to home. Over the last eight decades, the hospital has received national and global accolades: from recognition as a center of excellence in orthopedics to being one of only two hospitals in the world to maintain patient-centered Planetree Designation since 2007.
As the only health care provider in Coronado, Sharp Coronado is proud to be a trusted asset to the community, dedicated to the health and well-being of the residents and visitors of Coronado – today and for generations to come.
The entire team of dedicated staff and caregivers take immense pride in being a lifeline for the residents and visitors of Coronado, providing emergency and acute care, skilled nursing services, outpatient orthopedic and robotic surgery, women’s imaging and more.
As the most vital service provided to the community, Sharp Coronado Hospital’s Emergency Department is now the destination of choice for more than 70% of Coronado residents. More than three-quarters of hospital admissions are first seen in the Emergency Department.
To meet the growing need of island residents, guests, and nearby communities, Sharp Coronado plans to nearly double the size of the Emergency Department. By raising its capacity from eight beds to 15 private treatment rooms, the expansion will increase privacy, reduce wait times, and provide a more person-centered experience for patients and their loved ones in their greatest time of need.
