The Sharp Experience. It is what makes Sharp different from other providers. We focus on patient centered care and that is exactly how volunteers make a difference every shift here at Sharp Metro Campus. Patient and Family-Centered Care is responsive to priorities, preferences, and values of patients and their families. Holistic therapies incorporate unconventional healing approaches that go beyond traditional medicine to help patients achieve mental, emotional, spiritual, physical and social well-being. Holistic therapies is the process of treating the whole person, and not just the specific disease or illness.
