Sharp HealthCare


Sharp Prebys Innovation & Education Center

For more than four generations , Sharp HealthCare has been dedicated to the San Diego community . As the region ’ s largest and most comprehensive health care system , Sharp touches the lives of more than 1 million individuals each year . Keeping with its mission as a non-for-profit institution serving all of those who need care , Sharp provided a record-setting $ 500 million in community benefits within the last year - including charity , uncompensated and undercompensated care .

Now , Sharp HealthCare is strengthening its commitment to the community . The Foundations of Sharp HealthCare have launched ENVISION – a $ 250 million fundraising campaign in support of Sharp ’ s $ 2 billion , decade-long investment in San Diego ’ s health care future . “ At Sharp , we believe a first-class health care system is a vital part of a community ,” Bill Littlejohn , Senior Vice President and Chief Executive officer of the Foundations of Sharp HealthCare shared with GB Magazine . “ This is perhaps the most sweeping group of initiatives to enhance health care delivery in San Diego ’ s history .”
The ENVISION campaign is framed by four goals , known as the Aspirations of Excellence :
• Provide clinical and technical innovation
• Enhance knowledge and learning
• Create an extraordinary patient experience
• Deliver this world-class care to every community
