Mercy Clinic was founded in 1930 with the intent of caring for the underserved. It fills a gap for low-income, underinsured patients. The clinic benefits the working and disabled poor who need chronic disease management and specialty medical care.
Many of the patient visits are paid through Medi-Cal, Medicare or other insurance plans. Mercy Clinic and Scripps Mercy Hospital work in collaboration with San Diego County’s vast network of community clinics to provide care for those without the financial means to pay for health care.
Mercy Clinic is a hospital-based clinic that is both a teaching and resident-run primary care clinic under the Scripps Mercy Hospital Graduate Medical Education Program. It provides a training ground for more than 50 residents belonging to the Scripps Mercy graduate medical education programs. The clinic staff of nurses and other personnel work hand-in-hand with faculty, residents and specialists from the medical staff at Scripps Mercy Hospital.
In addition to routine care, Mercy Clinic offers a wide variety of subspecialty services including orthopedics, rheumatology, podiatry, nephrology, endocrinology and diabetes care, gastroenterology, neurology, infusion services, cardiology, pain management, and nutritional counseling.
