Support Scripps Memorial Hospital Encinitas
Scripps Memorial Hospital Encinitas has served the growing communities of San Diego’s coastal North County since 1964, offering a full range of clinical and surgical services, including 24-hour emergency services, intensive care, cancer/oncology, Level II neonatal nursery, and award-winning OB/GYN and maternal and infant health services. It is also the first certified primary stroke center in San Diego’s North County.
The medical needs of our expanding communities continue to increase. To meet the challenges, Scripps Encinitas is successfully engaged in bringing its long-range master plan to life.
Help Complete the Campaign for Scripps Encinitas
The Campaign for Scripps Encinitas is a five-year, multi-phase fundraising effort to significantly enhance the hospital’s surgical, emergency and acute care facilities.
Thanks to the generosity of our donors and community leaders, physicians and staff, the Campaign for Scripps Encinitas has already raised more than $40 million for construction of Leichtag Foundation Critical Care Pavilion, which opened in 2014. This two-story building includes a 38-bed emergency department, state-of-the-art imaging technology and surgical equipment, expanded ambulance bays, a heliport and specially designed patient rooms. But our work is not done.
In conjunction with our hospital community advisory board, Circle of Life 100 and key community leaders, Scripps is committed to raising an additional $10 million through our OR/354 community campaign — named after the hospital’s 354 Santa Fe Drive address — to expand our surgical services. This campaign will be completed in June 2017.
Since the community we serve continues to grow, the demand for our surgical services grows as well.
Contributions to OR/354 will support:
- Building two, new state-of-the-art operating rooms
- Redesigning and upgrading the four existing operating suites
- Expanding the pre-operative care unit and post-anesthesia unit
- Relocating and doubling the size of the endoscopy department
Become a Patron of the Healing Arts
Research confirms that soothing visual art — a beautiful nature scene or colorful mosaic — can help reduce pain and anxiety and speed healing among hospital patients. At Scripps, we are committed to creating comforting, optimistic environments for our patients and their families. Our new Healing Arts Program is commissioning original art from 26 professional artists for display at Leichtag Foundation Critical Care Pavilion.
Inspired by the beauty of our coastline, the signature pieces include oil paintings, mosaics, photography, sculpture and art glass. The program, funded entirely through philanthropy, aims to raise $1 million.
For more information about becoming an art patron, please call Scripps Health Foundation at 760-633-7722.
