Sharp Memorial Hospital has broken ground on its expansion of the Cushman Emergency and Trauma Center in San Diego, US.

This centre’s expansion will offer 31 new treatment rooms, a new CT room, two specialised rooms for patients suffering with contagious diseases, and an expanded quick-care pod.

Sharp Memorial Hospital CEO and senior vice president Tim Smith said: “Sharp Memorial is at the forefront of expert care, and we are thrilled to expand upon that legacy.

“Our Level II trauma centre provides critical services to San Diego, and we’ve received two consecutive Lantern Awards for excellence in emergency services. This expansion is an investment in our community and furthers our commitment to patient-centred care.”

The Emergency and Trauma Center expansion is part of the first phase of the largest set of transformational projects in Sharp’s medical campus in central San Diego.

The hospital’s investment will bring new and enhanced clinical facilities and services; incorporate advanced medical and information technology; and boost capacity and provide ease of access for patients throughout San Diego.
