We asked Dr. Julie Phillips, medical director of emergency care at Sharp Grossmont Hospital, to share the ways Sharp is ensuring the safety and well-being of patients — such as health screenings, enhanced cleaning of facilities, and visitor restrictions.

If you have a medical concern, don't wait. Making your health a priority can keep small problems small — and in some emergency cases, be the difference between life and death.
