Imagine. Inspire. Heal. Invest.
As a result of philanthropic support from our community, the largest expansion in the history of Scripps Memorial Hospital Encinitas is well under way.
The hospital serves residents in the coastal north county area, from Oceanside in the north, to Rancho Santa Fe in the east, to Del Mar in the south. As these communities continue to grow, so has the need for quality health care – close to home.
The Campaign for Scripps Encinitas is a five-year, multi-phase fundraising effort to significantly enhance the hospital’s emergency and acute care facilities to serve the ever-growing coastal North County community.
Phase I: $38 million goal met
Thanks to the generosity of people like you—our donors, community leaders, physicians and staff—we have met our phase I goal of $38 million. We could not have accomplished this feat without your support.
Funds raised during phase I are helping us build a two-story 62,000 square-foot critical care building that includes a 27-bed emergency department on the ground floor and a 36-bed medical/surgical unit on the second floor.
Opening in 2014, the critical care building will also include state-of-the-art diagnostic and surgical equipment, expanded ambulance bays, a heliport and specially designed patient rooms.
On behalf of the communities we serve, we offer our sincerest appreciation to all donors and volunteers who have invested with us and who have become a part of this important chapter of our history.

As the campaign continues, Scripps and the hospital’s community advisory board — which helps support fundraising efforts — along with other key community leaders, are committed to raising an additional $12 million by the time the building opens in 2014.
Additional campaign contributions will support the build-out of the medical/surgical unit, a 12-bed observation unit on the first floor and two new operating rooms designed to utilize the most advanced technology for patient care.
