Medical Centers in La Mesa and San Diego
Medical centers are an important part of community life, as hospitals serve hundreds of patients each day. It is vital that a medical center strives for excellence in every aspect of health care, and we are fortunate to have a provider of medical services just like that in our La Mesa neighborhood. The nearby Sharp Grossmont Hospital serves La Mesa and the East County area of San Diego by offering “The Sharp Experience” in a variety of medical specialties. In addition to its emergency room, Women’s Health Center, and outpatient imaging center, Sharp Grossmont Hospital also provides cancer treatment, mental health care, hospice services, rehabilitation facilities, heart and vascular care, and much more. The medical center also offers a range of health classes as another valuable service to the La Mesa community. The hospital is a major factor in La Mesa’s quality of life, and residents are richer for having a high-quality facility that provides these kinds of medical services in their city.

Fortunately, we don’t need to go to the hospital every day. But that means we have to take care of our health by making regular appointments for preventive care and checkups. At Grossmont Center, we have two tenants that specialize in quality vision care health services.
Grossmont Vision Center Optometry provides thorough, comprehensive care to patients at its Center location. Kevin M. Riggs, O.D., can perform eye exams for general eye health as well as prescription glasses or contact lenses. Further, he can address a number of eye care concerns, including cataracts, dry eyes, glaucoma, macular degeneration, and more. The optometry office also carries contacts and frames from top manufacturers.
With a prescription in hand, you can find a pair of glasses that are both comfortable and fashionable. You can buy frames that fit the bill at Stanton Optical at the Center. Even better, if you are due for an update on your prescription, you can get an eye exam here. When it comes to frames, the choices are virtually endless, with more than 3,000 pairs available. Packs of contact lenses are also sold at Stanton Optical, and both glasses and contacts can be purchased at affordable prices, or with special promotional offers. Certain glasses can even be ready in 15 minutes or less with the NOW Service.
Your health is of the utmost importance. Take care of yourself at our local medical centers, and take care of your vision at Grossmont Center!
