We accept cash and credit card payments for parking. For your convenience, ATMs are located on the first floor of the hospital (near the cafeteria), and in the Geisel Pavilion lobby (formerly the Anderson Outpatient Pavilion).
To help you find your way around on this busy medical campus, Scripps is piloting a new wayfinding service. This service includes photo directions throughout Green Hospital, Scripps Clinic Torrey Pines, Geisel Outpatient Pavilion, Emily Fenton Hunte Breast Care Center, Shiley Pavilion and the patient parking structure.
The service is easy to use with your iPhone, Android phone (OS 8 or newer) or iPad. No app download is needed.
As part of this service, you will notice QR codes conveniently posted at elevators and check-in desks. Simply open the camera on your phone or iPad, point the camera at the QR code, and enter where you want to go. Ready to come back? Just tap “Reverse route” to return to your starting point.
Note: Internet connection is required to initially download your route to your phone or iPad. Your cellular data plan may be faster than using the campus WiFi.
