How to find us.
We are located at:
3003 Health Center Drive
San Diego, CA 92123
If using public transportation, take the 25/120 bus to Health Center Drive and Frost Street.
We also offer free transportation services for non-emergency medical appointments at most Sharp locations.
Contact or visit a patient.
We have implemented new visitation restrictions to protect those who are most vulnerable, in accordance with the County Health Department order.
At this time, no visitors are allowed to visit a patient, and no children are allowed in the lobby.
Maternity patients are allowed one support person (18 and older). This person may be either a loved one or a Sharp Mary Birch-employed doula, but must be the same person for the duration of the patient's stay. No outside doulas are permitted at this time.
The support person is permitted in triage and can remain through postpartum/recovery. Every patient and support person will be screened upon arrival.
For surgical patients, one designated support person is allowed.
Only adults with wristbands will be allowed in the NICU, and siblings will not be permitted.
Thank you for your understanding and support during this time.
To reach a patient's room, call 858-939-3400 and ask for the patient by name or room number.
