People are living longer today than ever before. At Sharp HealthCare, we're committed to providing quality medical care in a healing environment for older adults that prioritize your goals, rather than focusing solely on your illness or injury.
We know that good health can help you age successfully. At Sharp, we want to help you live longer in better health. In order to do that, we provide personalized, evidence-based medical care, including:
A coordinated team of experts from different medical specialties
Daily review of your progress to ensure you’re meeting treatment goals
Evaluation of your medical equipment needs (e.g., canes and walkers)
Outpatient resources to address your needs and get you back to what matters most in your life
As the aging population grows, so does the number of visits to the emergency department. That's why we made efforts to enhance the care and resources we provide to our older patients. Sharp's four emergency departments are uniquely qualified to care for older adults and have received age-friendly accreditation through the the American College of Emergency Physicians.
Sharp Chula Vista Medical Center, accredited by the American College of Emergency Physicians as a Bronze-Level 3 emergency department
Sharp Coronado Hospital, accredited by the American College of Emergency Physicians as a Bronze-Level 3 emergency department
Sharp Grossmont Hospital, accredited by the American College of Emergency Physicians as a Gold-Level 1 and as a Senior-Friendly Emergency Department
Sharp Memorial Hospital, certified by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement as an “Age-Friendly Health System” and accredited by the American College of Emergency Physicians as a Bronze-Level 3 emergency department
We offer the following older adult programs and services specialized to our aging community:
