Global Patient Services
Global Patient Services
The care you need, wherever you are.
When you're far from home, a medical emergency is the last thing on your mind. But if it happens, we're here to help. Our Global Patient Services (GPS) program coordinates patient transfers and evacuations from around the world to a Sharp HealthCare hospital.
Care starts with our experienced bilingual team, qualified with more than 30 years of experience. We work closely with travel insurance and assistance companies, cruise lines, government agencies and other organizations to manage all facets of your emergency. And being so close to the border, we have close working relationships with medical professionals in Mexico.
A GPS transfer liaison is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to assist with medical evacuations of patients to a Sharp hospital. To request assistance with an evacuation, please call toll-free 1-888-265-1513. The GPS department does not sell travel insurance or provide vaccinations required for foreign travel.
Bringing you home, bringing you to Sharp.
To request assistance with an evacuation outside the U.S. to a Sharp hospital, please call toll-free 1-888-265-1513. One of our dedicated liaisons is available to you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Please note that we do not sell travel insurance or provide vaccinations required for foreign travel.
Before you travel abroad.
For non-emergent questions, please call 858-499-4102, Monday through Friday, 9 am to 4 pm, send us an email. If you're a foreign resident or expatriate, interested in non-emergent medical care — such as elective surgery, second opinion or specialized care — please send us an email.
