Support Scripps Green Hospital and Scripps Clinic Torrey Pines

Scripps Green Hospital is consistently recognized as one of the nation’s best hospitals. In its 2023-2024 rankings, U.S. News & World Report ranked Scripps La Jolla Hospitals and Clinics among the nation’s best hospitals in five specialties, including cardiology, heart and vascular surgery; gastroenterology and GI surgery; geriatrics; obstetrics and gynecology; and orthopedics. The hospital provides a wide range of clinical and surgical services, including organ transplantation, blood and bone marrow transplantation, oncology care, cardiothoracic and orthopedic surgery, and interventional cardiology and heart care.

The hospital opened in 1977 to support Scripps Clinic, an internationally recognized multi-specialty medical group and leading clinical research institution. A center of excellence in several specialties, it provides patient care in more than 50 fields of medicine and surgery. Because of its reputation as a premier research and patient care institution, Scripps Clinic Torrey Pines was chosen to care for Mother Teresa in 1991. Long-time La Jolla resident Theodor Geisel (a.k.a. Dr. Seuss) wrote about his father’s care at Scripps Clinic in “You’re Only Old Once, A Book for Obsolete Children.”

Support Innovative Research at Scripps Clinic

Physician-scientists across Scripps Clinic are engaged in innovative medical research, which seeks to translate basic scientific findings into useful interventions for patients. This bridge from “bench” to “bedside” is critical to understanding disease processes. 

Unlocking the Mysteries of Cancer

Every cancer is unique. Brain cancer differs from ovarian cancer, which differs from colon cancer. In fact, similar tumors in different patients can have different genetic compositions and respond differently to the same treatments. This is one of the many reasons cancer is so challenging to treat. Research being conducted by Scripps Clinic oncologists and specialists is accelerating our understanding of cancer and our ability to bring new treatments to patients.

Groundbreaking Research in Orthopedics

Scripps Clinic orthopedic specialists are driving groundbreaking scientific discoveries and medical breakthroughs — uncovering potential treatments for debilitating musculoskeletal conditions, thanks to advancements at the Shiley Center for Orthopedic Research and Education at Scripps Clinic.

Researchers are on the path towards advanced treatments for osteoarthritis through stem cell research that targets the repair and regeneration of cartilage. Scripps Clinic orthopedic research has the potential to change the future of orthopedic therapies. The discoveries that emerge could potentially augment or take the place of medication or joint replacement.
