Sharp to build $239 million hospital tower
San Diego Union-Tribune

Continuing growth has spurred Sharp HealthCare to make its largest investment to date in South County.

The health system announced Monday that it will spend nearly $240 million to add a seven-story medical tower to Sharp Chula Vista Medical Center. That’s about $50 million more than the $195 million it used to build the 334-bed tower at Sharp Memorial Hospital in Serra Mesa, which opened in 2009.

Pablo Velez, chief executive of Sharp Chula Vista, said the project should send a clear message to the community.
