The new Sharp Memorial Hospital opened in 2009. The 368-bed hospital features private patient rooms, sleeper sofas for loved ones, state-of-the-art surgery suites and the largest and most modern emergency and trauma center in San Diego.

Sharp Memorial, part of the Sharp Metropolitan Medical Campus, is also a MAGNET hospital for nursing and patient care excellence. This designation is the "gold standard" for patient care and nursing excellence and it is the highest honor awarded by the American Nurses Credentialing Center. Only 22 hospitals in California are MAGNET hospitals. Sharp Memorial has been a part of San Diego health care history for more than 50 years. It continues to be at the forefront of medical technology and patient satisfaction.

The Sharp volunteer program has been a positive and enjoyable experience. It's a place where I not only give smiles, but receive compassion and smiles.

I really enjoy volunteering here at Sharp because I know I am helping patients and their families receive the excellent care that has been provided to my own family members in the past here at Sharp Memorial. It was volunteers and staff that made a difficult time for my family better, and I like doing my part to give back

I volunteer in Integrative Healing giving comforting hand massages to all patients and staff and I also volunteer in Rehab working with the physical and occupational therapists. I love giving the simple gift of giving a smile to let the patients know that I care.

The focus on patient care is definitely apparent at Sharp and it is nice to know that as a volunteer, you get to be a part of it as well. Volunteering here has been a great opportunity to really help people while learning about the healthcare field. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. Great place to gain experience working with all sorts of people in different hospital settings.

I have had previous dealings with this organization thru family and friends that work for Sharp and all of those experiences have been good ones...I believe its called the SHARP EXPERIENCE.
