Residing in San Diego, Elliot Feuerstein has had a storied career in working on commercial real estate projects in the Southern California area. In the early 1970s, Elliot Feuerstein opened the Mira Mesa Nursery alongside his father which was one of the first retail businesses in the area. Along with being current acting officer of the Mira Mesa Shopping Center (managing the leases of retail partners including Best Buy, In-N-Out Burger, and US Bank), he has also served on the San Diego-based Sharp HealthCare Foundation Board of Directors.
Sharp is a not-for-profit hospital that provides a high level of patient care between its four acute-care hospitals, three affiliated medical clinics, and three specialty hospitals. In 1992, the Foundation successfully raised money to build Sharp Mary Birch Hospital for Women & Newborns, the largest freestanding medical center for women’s health in the area. It currently has 206 beds and delivers around 9,000 babies a year. In December 2018, Sharp Mary Birch hospital made the news when it delivered the smallest surviving baby in the world. Baby Saybie weighed 8.6 ounces and stayed in neonatal intensive care until she weighed a healthy five pounds.
