The Campaign for Scripps Encinitas

Imagine. Inspire. Heal. Invest.

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.

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.

Phase I: $38 million goal met

As a result of philanthropic support from our community, the largest expansion in the history of Scripps Memorial Hospital Encinitas has achieved a major milestone with the opening of the Leichtag Foundation Critical Care Pavilion.

Thanks to the generosity of people like you—our donors, community leaders, physicians and staff—we raised more than $40 million. We could not have accomplished this feat without your support.

Funds raised during this phase helped us build a two-story 72,321 square-foot critical care building that includes a 26-bed emergency department on the ground floor and a 36-bed medical/surgical unit on the second floor.

Opened in July 2014, the critical care building also includes state-of-the-art imaging technology 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.

Next steps

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 $18 million.

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.
