A new hospital tower opened at Sharp Chula Vista Medical Center, Chula Vista, Calif., the largest health care project serving the South Bay community. With an investment of $244 million, Sharp was funded through a combination of operating income, borrowing, and philanthropic support.

Five years ago, Sharp HealthCare Foundation embarked on the Above and Beyond Campaign to build a next-generation hospital at Sharp Chula Vista Medical Center. This campaign was the largest and most ambitious philanthropic effort in the hospital’s history. Thanks to the generosity of employees, physicians, the hospital’s auxiliary, and thousands of community members, the campaign has raised more than $20 million. The tower provides space for advanced patient care, surgical suites, all private patient rooms, a rooftop café, and more.
