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.
We now allow two support people (18 and older) and any doula, as long as prior arrangements are made and distancing is possible. No children are allowed in the lobby.
The support people must be the same people for the duration of the patient's stay. Every patient and support person will be screened upon arrival.
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.
