John R. Anderson V Medical Pavilion, the Newest Scripps Clinic Location
Construction crews recently placed a signed ceremonial beam to “top out” the new Scripps Clinic John R. Anderson V Medical Pavilion.
The pavilion is named in honor of Eileen and John “Jack” R. Anderson’s youngest son who passed away from cancer in 2004.
The Andersons donated $25 million to help build the newest addition to Scripps Clinic, a 175,000-square-foot, multispecialty medical building that will connect with the Prebys Cardiovascular Institute on the Scripps La Jolla campus.
Once completed, the six-story, $130 million medical building will house a variety of specialty services, including:
- Cardiothoracic surgery
- Diabetes and Endocrinology
- General cardiology
- General surgery
- Infectious disease diagnosis and treatment
- Integrative cardiology
- Interventional cardiology
- Pulmonary medicine
- Vascular surgery
The building will also include four outpatient cardiac catheterization labs that will allow physicians to perform certain cardiac procedures in an outpatient setting.
Anderson Medical Pavilion in La Jolla reaches new milestone
The last steel beam is set in the construction of the Anderson Medical Pavilion on the Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla campus. An event marking this milestone honors major donors Jack and Eileen Anderson.
