Hospice Care in San Diego at Scripps Health

Scripps Hospice is committed to providing compassionate in-home hospice care to patients with a serious life-limiting illness. We also coordinate hospice care services with other programs at Scripps, including home health and inpatient palliative care services.

Designed to help reduce patients’ physical pain and emotional suffering, our hospice care program is available to those who have made the decision to manage their pain and physical symptoms without seeking curative treatments.

We work as a team to provide end-of-life care for adult, pediatric and perinatal patients that not only brings patients comfort, self-respect and dignity, but also provides emotional, social and spiritual support for their family members.

Scripps Hospice provides in-home hospice care throughout San Diego County — coastal cities, North County, East County, central San Diego and the South Bay.
