Sharp by the numbers (infographic)

Nov. 14, 2016

Each week, Sharp doctors and caregivers bring 300 babies into the world. In the same week, we help our weight management patients lose a cumulative 530 pounds. With impressive figures like these, we dug deeper. And between the numbers for 2016, we found that Sharp HealthCare is more than the sum of our parts.

Sharp by the numbers (infographic). Sharp HealthCare is San Diego’s healthcare leader. Each year, we see more than 600,000 patients in our facilities. These include four acute care hospitals, three specialty hospitals, three skilled nursing facilities, 22 Sharp Rees-Stealy medical centers and three hospice residences. From our laboratories to our ERs, a day at Sharp is always a busy one. A typical day sees 1,322 inpatients, 2,810 outpatient visits, 785 emergency department visits and 5,183 Sharp Rees-Stealy medical group doctor visits. There are also 125 surgeries and 43 births. However, it’s the people at Sharp that make us special. We are 18,000 employees, 1,800 volunteers and 2,900 affiliated doctors. Collectively, these Sharp-affiliated doctors speak more than 43 different languages. Furthermore, Sharp has a variety of fun number facts to share. For example, an average of 60 kidneys are transplanted each year at Sharp, an average of 530 pounds are lost each week through Sharp’s weight management program, 49 gallons of breastmilk were donated last year to the Sharp Mary Birch milk drive, and Sharp diverted 358,000 pounds of food waste from landfills last year by composting. Your Sharp HealthCare journey begins when you choose a Sharp doctor. For more information, visit or call 1-800-82-SHARP (1-800-827-4277).
