Parking Card Information

One of the benefits associated with President’s Council membership is complimentary self-parking at all Scripps hospital parking structures and designated lots. We are moving to an automated parking system at all of our sites. Additionally, parking cards are no longer issued every year. Instead your card will be re-activated each year upon receipt of your President’s Council membership renewal.

Presidents Council is an extraordinary group of compassionate supporters who help us ensure quality patient support services at Scripps. In return, it rewards members with access to our physicians and researchers, insights into medical breakthroughs, and more.
