Description

Scripps Health is a not-for-profit, community-based health care delivery network in San Diego, California, that includes four acute-care hospitals on five campuses, more than 2,300 affiliated physicians, an extensive ambulatory care network, home health care and associated support services. As a result of the July 2000 reaffiliation with Scripps Clinic, Scripps Health now has approximately 11,000 employees and also cares for patients at 13 clinic locations throughout San Diego County.

Scripps Health has a long history in San Diego, dating back to 1924 when Ellen Browning Scripps founded Scripps Memorial Hospital and Scripps Metabolic Clinic in La Jolla. Scripps Mercy Hospital, San Diego's oldest hospital, was founded in 1890 and joined the Scripps Health system in 1995. Scripps Mercy Hospital expanded in October 2004 by joining operations with Scripps Memorial Hospital Chula Vista, creating a second Scripps Mercy campus - Scripps Mercy Hospital Chula Vista. Today, in addition to the two campuses of Scripps Mercy Hospital and Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla (formerly Scripps Memorial Hospital), the Scripps Health acute-care hospital system also includes Scripps Green Hospital and Scripps Memorial Hospital Encinitas.
