This new Medical Office Building (MOB) replaced the existing 85-year-old Sharp Rees-Stealy Downtown building. It is the first Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) gold-certified “green” medical office building in San Diego and the first LEED building for Sharp Healthcare.
The 3-story, 66,365-square-foot MOB and 300-space parking structure are located across from the previous site in the Banker’s Hill neighborhood north of downtown San Diego, and features views of downtown and the San Diego Bay. The floor plan was designed to minimize wait times and maximize process efficiencies for physicians and staff.
The facility includes a pharmacy, optical shop, and physical therapy department and elevated pedestrian walkway spanning the atrium. Other departments include:
1st Floor: Optical Shop, PT, Pharmacy, Optometry/Ophthalmology, Allergy/Critical Research & Administration.
2nd Floor: Lab, Radiology, Occupational Medicine, Medical Records & Urgent Care.
3rd Floor: Family Practice/Internal Medicine (also called Primary Care), Podiatry, Dermatology, Neurology, Rheumatology and an Exterior Patio overlooking a Green Roof.
An historic tree, the Florence Hotel Moreton Bay Fig Tree, is located on the site and was required to be protected during construction. It is an important focal point of the project.
