Building for the Future

With your support, there will be continued growth and expansion at Scripps La Jolla that will transform the campus to serve the community for years to come.


Construction is under way on a new, 433,000-square-foot hospital tower, which will provide all private patient rooms and essential enhancements of medical and surgical services. Bridges on multiple floors will connect the new tower to the Prebys Cardiovascular Institute allowing for patients to be easily transported to different care units.


The new tower will be home to a dedicated women’s center with a post-partum floor featuring all private rooms, sitting alcoves, a nursery overlooking the Prebys rooftop garden and a boutique with items that support a new mother’s needs. The labor and delivery floor will incorporate rooms with labor tubs, operating rooms, antepartum rooms and a family waiting area with an outdoor patio. The women's center also will include a new, state-of-the-art Level III neonatal intensive care unit (NICU).
