Scripps Health's trauma centers played a critical role over the weekend after a gunman shot several people in University City. Scripps' two trauma centers at Scripps La Jolla and Scripps Mercy San Diego treated several of the wounded.

Scripps held a press conference at Scripps La Jolla the day after the mass shooting to provide patient updates, report on the rapid medical response by physicians and nurses at the two hospitals and emphasize the importance of the trauma system in the region.
