We’re excited to share some recent Sharp HealthCare and Sharp Health Plan achievements with you:
Sharp Memorial Hospital and Sharp Chula Vista Medical Center were the only facilities in the San Diego region to earn A grades in the latest safety report from the Leapfrog Group. The Leapfrog Group is a nonprofit that specializes in health care accountability. Their report reviews thousands of hospitals nationwide across 27 quality categories, ranging from infection prevention to staff responsiveness, issuing letter grades from A through F. Sharp Memorial Hospital received its fourth-straight A, the longest streak among its peers in San Diego County, and Sharp Chula Vista Medical Center jumped from B to A. Please read the full article published by The San Diego Union-Tribune to learn more about the report.
In addition, UC Berkeley’s School of Public Health’s Right Care Initiative recently awarded Sharp Health Plan with an excellence award for being one of the highest-performing California health plans, surpassing the national 90th percentile in hypertension and diabetes blood sugar control. This achievement would not have been possible without the tireless work of our partners-in-health Sharp Rees-Steely Medical Group and Sharp Community Medical Group!
We are so proud to be a part of the Sharp delivery system, and we applaud these outstanding achievements by Sharp Memorial Hospital, Sharp Chula Vista Medical Center, Sharp Rees-Stealy Medical Group, Sharp Community Medical Group and our own Sharp Health Plan on these well-deserved recognitions.
