A Beacon of Care in South San Diego
Scripps is at the forefront of providing quality health care to San Diego’s south county communities. The hospital is noted for comprehensive diabetes care, vital to patients and families who struggle to understand and manage this chronic condition. The Woltman Family Diabetes Care and Prevention Center is the centerpiece of this program.
We also provide 24-hour emergency care, orthopedic and thoracic/vascular surgery capabilities, state-of-the-art imaging, and an array of outpatient services. And we are committed to serving those who have served the U.S. through the Veterans Mental Health Project.
Through your support, you can help us deliver the quality care our communities need — from giving a premature baby a start in life to providing a wounded veteran a second chance.
Making Miracles Happen in Mexico
The Mercy Outreach Surgical Team (MOST) provides surgical care during week-long and weekend missions to Mexico.

View our MOST page to learn about the program and how you can make a difference in the lives of many children.
Minimally invasive robotic surgery has revolutionized how we perform surgery. Through the advanced technology of the da Vinci Xi Surgical System, our surgeons are able to perform more complex procedures while our patients experience less pain and discomfort, shorter recovery times and reduced risk of infections. Because of the enhanced precision and control it provides, robotic surgery is effective in cancer, cardiothoracic, gynecologic and other types of surgeries.
With the help of philanthropy, the newest robotic surgery system is being introduced at Scripps Mercy, Chula Vista, and you can help support this vital program.
