News Roundup: Media Coverage of Scripps Mercy's 125th Anniversary

Local media outlets cover milestone in San Diego health care history


Scripps Mercy Hospital (San Diego and Chula Vista) celebrated its 125th anniversary on July 9, 2015 and a number of local media outlets took notice. Community leaders gathered to mark the occasion with a time capsule installation, a medical artifacts display and a retrospective photo exhibit. Founded by Mother Mary Michael Cummings and the Sisters of Mercy, Scripps Mercy is the region’s longest-established hospital.

Two days later, on July 11, Scripps Mercy held a free community celebration of the 125th for the public, again outside the historic hospital, and several local media outlets provided coverage.
