Scripps Health has opened Scripps Coastal Medical Center San Marcos, offering North County residents another option for care from the region’s leading health system.

Located at 111 Campus Way, Suite 301, in the fast-growing North City district of San Marcos, the 14,156-square-foot clinic offers primary care for the entire family alongside radiology and laboratory services, and same-day care through Scripps HealthExpress.

“We are excited to offer the entire San Marcos region this convenient primary health care option for the entire family covering all ages and including internal, family medicine and pediatrics,” said Kevin Hirsch, MD, president and CEO of Scripps Coastal Medical Group.

Medical staffing at the center includes 10 family medicine and internal medicine providers, and one pediatrician. A rheumatologist is also seeing patients once a week at the site.

As a result of the opening, the Scripps Coastal Medical Center Escondido has closed its doors and its providers have relocated to the San Marcos site.

“With the recent opening of the new Scripps Coastal Medical Center, Scripps Health once again has extended access to high-quality care to patients in an easily accessible location close to where they live and work,” said Tracy Chu, Scripps Health corporate vice president for population health.

The center is located near California State University San Marcos and within the office, residential and commercial community that has risen around the university.

“The city of San Marcos has grown into a health-care hub for northern San Diego County, and we are thrilled to welcome Scripps Coastal Medical Center to our new downtown community of North City,” said Rebecca Jones, mayor of San Marcos. “Top quality health care now joins this new, vibrant mixed-use space that is quickly becoming the heart of San Marcos.”

Scripps HealthExpress same-day clinic is open 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekends and holidays for patients age 2 and older with minor, acute injuries and illnesses.
