How to find us.
We are located at:
3003 Health Center Drive

We also offer free transportation services for non-emergency medical appointments at most Sharp locations.
Contact or visit a patient.
For your safety and the safety of our new moms and babies, we have temporarily implemented special visitation guidelines during flu season.
Guests age 12 and younger may not visit any patients and will not be permitted on patient floors. In addition, guests of any age with cold or flu symptoms (including fever greater than 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit, coughing, sneezing, runny nose, sore throat, body aches) may not visit patients.
We apologize for any inconvenience this causes you and your family — especially to the baby's siblings.
For the safety of newborns in our care, only banded parents who do not have cold or flu symptoms are permitted to visit our NICU. All other visitors, including siblings, friends and relatives, are not permitted to visit the NICU at this time.
To reach a patient's room, call 858-939-3400 and ask for the patient by name or room number.
Each patient may have a support person stay in the patient's room overnight (must be over 18).
