Get support for your needs.
We know how important it is to live life to the fullest. That's why our Sharp HealthCare Foundation HeadNorth grant is available for spinal cord injury survivors to receive funding and support for important equipment and services — from wheelchairs and exercise equipment to home modifications. Grants are provided to patients overcoming a traumatic spinal cord injury who are legal San Diego County residents with a demonstrated financial need. If you are eligible and would like to apply, please fill out our application (PDF).
Our accredited rehabilitation facilities.
Our Sharp Memorial Rehabilitation Center is accredited by CARF (Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities) for the spinal cord injury program.
This accreditation represents the highest level of accreditation that can be awarded to an organization and shows Sharp's substantial conformance to the standards established by CARF. An organization receiving accreditation by CARF for the spinal cord injury program has been through a rigorous peer review process, and has demonstrated to a team of surveyors during an on-site visit that its spinal cord injury programs and services are of the highest quality and are measurable and accountable.
