Scripps Memorial Hospital Encinitas

Our Vision

Transformation of Scripps Memorial Hospital Encinitas is well under way. The first phase of the master plan completed in 2016 includes the Leichtag Foundation Critical Care Pavilion, a 62,000-square-foot critical care building with a 38-bed emergency department, 36-private room inpatient unit and two upgraded surgical suites. 


Thanks to a generous $25 million lead gift from Debbie and Warner Lusardi, Scripps Memorial Hospital Encinitas is beginning phase two of its master plan. The centerpiece is the Lusardi Tower, a new, 185,000-square-foot hospital building with 64 private inpatient rooms, surgical suites and a state-of-the-art intensive care unit. It will be equipped with the latest wireless technologies, flexible surgical suites, advanced digital monitoring and telemedicine capabilities.


Private rooms are filled with natural light and include flexible space for clinical care, patient, and family use. Nurses are always in close proximity. This advanced acute care facility will make delivery of care throughout the campus more efficient, ultimately providing a better health care experience to our growing population. 

Your support will enable Scripps Memorial Hospital Encinitas to continue to be a premier destination for a full range of patient care needs in a healing environment for decades to come. Thank you for giving for good and making a difference in the health and quality of life of our community.
