How to find us.
We are located at:

If using public transportation, take the 25/120 bus to Vista Hill Avenue and Meadowlark Drive.
We also offer free transportation services for non-emergency medical appointments at most Sharp locations.
Contact or visit a patient.
We strive to keep our guest policy flexible while ensuring that a safe environment is maintained for our patients, guests and staff. If there is a schedule conflict with our standard visiting hours, we will work with each family on special visitation arrangements when possible.
To ensure that our patients' therapy sessions are not disrupted, please call or check with the patient's unit before your arrival.
Our patients' safety is our top priority. The only items visitors are permitted to bring into the patient care areas are eyeglasses, a wallet and car keys. Some units do not allow any personal belongings. All visitors must be appropriately dressed (including shirt and shoes), and free of signs of illness, drug influence and intoxication.
Some units allow visitors under age 18, but they must be accompanied by an adult.
