Sharp Chula Vista Medical Center
News and Updates
Following the groundbreaking celebration just one year ago, construction at Sharp Chula Vista Medical Center reached an exciting milestone on Nov. 16, 2017, as the final structural steel column was placed. After decades of planning, a new hospital is just two years away.
Overall, there are 3,580 pieces of steel used to create the framework for the new hospital, which weigh nearly 4 million pounds in total.
To celebrate, Sharp Chula Vista and Sharp HealthCare Foundation held a topping out ceremony where executives, doctors, employees, community members and donors had the chance to leave their mark and sign the beam before it was placed at the top of the tower's frame.
