Scripps Advanced Care Clinic

Enhanced care for those with chronic illness

Located on the campus of Scripps Mercy Hospital San Diego, Scripps Advanced Care Clinic provides intensive, proactive, medical and social services to adults living with multiple chronic diseases. Understanding that diseases can impact all aspects of a person’s life, we don’t focus solely on treating medical issues, but also on the psychosocial, economic and spiritual aspects of care. The aim is to get to know what is important to our patients, define a set of goals, and work together to achieve those goals and enhance a person’s overall quality of life.

To receive care from Scripps Advanced Care Clinic, a referral from a primary care provider is required. 

Scripps Advanced Care Clinic has a team of expert clinicians who will collaborate with your primary care provider to assist with enhancing all aspects of your well-being. Our team members include:

  • Physicians
  • Nurse practitioners
  • Clinical pharmacists
  • Registered nurses
  • Case managers
