Honoring Our Sharp HealthCare Nurses 


Dear Friends and Supporters,

Today is a special day for nurses everywhere.

It is International Nurses Day and the last day of National Nurses Week, which falls on the birthday of Florence Nightingale, who was born May 12, 1820 — 200 years ago today!

"The Lady with the Lamp" was known for her nightly rounds to aid the wounded, and her principles of proper medical care are held in high esteem today.

We are confident Florence Nightingale would be immensely proud of our Sharp HealthCare nurses who are on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic, dispensing medicine and compassion in equal measure.

We invite you to support our dedicated nurses by making a gift to Sharp's COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund. Your thoughtful donation will provide the vital resources and supplies our caregivers need at this critical time. (Watch the story of Sharp Memorial Hospital nurse Jennifer Hites, who works to make sure all emergency room nurses are as safe as possible during the pandemic.)

Whatever Challenges Are Ahead, We Will Be There For You

Over her lifetime, Florence Nightingale rose to meet every challenge. She was steadfastly there for her patients and students, just as Sharp HealthCare and its outstanding nursing staff will always be there for you.

For those who have given, please accept our sincere appreciation. We hope others will join us in supporting our nurses and staff who are caring for those in our community.


With appreciation,


Bill Littlejohn,
Senior Vice President and Chief Executive Officer
