More than 90 years of exceptional care

Established in 1924 by Ellen Browning Scripps, Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla has been one of Southern California’s premier medical centers for more than 90 years. Scripps La Jolla was ranked No. 1 by U.S. News & World Report for the San Diego region and among the best in the nation in multiple specialties.

With 444 licensed beds, we offer a wide range of clinical, surgical and specialty services, including a Level II Trauma Center and 24-hour emergency services. We also offer an intensive care unit (ICU), interventional cardiology and radiology, radiation oncology, cancer care, cardiothoracic and orthopedic services, neurology, outpatient physical rehabilitation, bariatric surgery and women’s health services, including OB-GYN and labor and delivery services.

We are consistently recognized for quality patient care and we were the first hospital in San Diego to be designated a Magnet Hospital by the American Nursing Association for excellence in patient care.
