Quick Facts

We’re proud to lead the charge in heart care. It’s part of our history. San Diego’s first open-heart surgery, heart transplant and cardiac catheterization all happened at Sharp, and we’ve pioneered new cardiac technologies, including LVADs. Today, Sharp is the only provider of full spectrum advanced heart failure treatments in our community. Sharp is among the first hospital systems in the nation to offer the Watchman™ left atrial appendage closure device, an implant that keeps harmful blood clots from entering the blood stream — and we continue to develop and adopt the latest in cardiac technologies.
