Here for Good Campaign: Breaking Ground on a Bright Future
Our Here for Good Campaign includes expansion across all of our hospital campuses so we can continue to provide innovative health care and create healing environments to meet the growing needs of the San Diego community.
Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla
Construction is under way on a new seven-story hospital tower connected to Prebys Cardiovascular Institute. Once open in March 2025, the tower will contain four medical/surgical floors with observation bays, radiology imaging suites and nine operating rooms, all with state-of-the-art equipment. The tower will also house a dedicated women’s center.
Scripps Memorial Hospital Encinitas
Construction is starting this summer on the Lusardi Tower, named in honor of Debbie and Warner Lusardi, who provided a generous $25 million lead gift. The state-of-the-art, 185,000-square-foot hospital building is expected to be open in 2029. The Lusardi Pulmonary Institute will also be added on campus, with a focus on pulmonary care. In addition, expansion of the mother/baby unit in the main hospital will add new postpartum beds to serve the growing number of families in North County.
Scripps Mercy Hospital
The campus of Scripps Mercy, San Diego, will be home to a new hospital tower with private patient rooms, an intensive care unit, state-of-the-art radiological and surgical suites, and women’s services, including labor and delivery and a neonatal intensive care unit. A medical pavilion with operating rooms, primary and specialty physician offices, imaging and other outpatient services will also be added. Seismic retrofitting of the acute care buildings at Scripps Mercy Hospital, Chula Vista, are also part of the overall master plan.
Scripps MD Anderson Cancer Center
Our plans include expansion across the San Diego region. Prebys Cancer Center opened in late summer 2021 on the campus of Scripps Mercy Hospital, San Diego, thanks to a $20 million gift from late philanthropist Conrad Prebys and other generous donors. In addition, renovation of the Woltman Family College Building provides additional space for a variety of patient and family support services. Scripps MD Anderson’s John J. Hopkins location on the Torrey Pines mesa will continue an expansion launched by a $5 million gift from Fred and Lynda Allen, which has added treatment rooms and areas for additional support services.
