A New Campaign to Transform Medicine in San Diego County
Our Here for Good capital campaign is a $500 million, decade-long expansion plan to make Scripps one of the centers of health care in California. When you give for good, you are making a lasting investment in the community that will be felt for generations to come.
Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla Receives Level 1 Trauma Designation
Scripps Health solidified itself as the place to go for critical care when Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla joined Scripps Mercy Hospital, San Diego, as a Level 1 trauma center. We now have two of only three Level 1 adult trauma centers in San Diego County. Level 1 is the highest trauma designation awarded to hospitals and is only given to those with the most significant range of injury care available to patients.
Scripps Named One of the Top Health Systems in the Nation
Scripps Health has been named one of the top five medium-sized health care systems in the nation by Merative and is the only health provider in San Diego County to be included on the list. Hospitals were ranked based on quality of care, operational efficiency and patient experience. As a not-for-profit hospital, we share this incredible honor with all of our donors who help ensure we have the resources we need to heal, enhance and save lives.
Philanthropic Giving is Leading to Orthopedic Research Breakthroughs
The Shiley Center for Orthopedic Research and Education (SCORE) is conducting a wide range of research made possible in part by philanthropic giving. Donors have helped this team create breakthroughs that may help repair bone defects and heal meniscus tears. The team’s work on forming artificial blood vessels could eventually lead to growing tissues and organs that can be transplanted into patients.
Patient Spotlight: Marathoner Tania Tuluie
Qualifying for, let alone finishing, the legendary Boston Marathon is a feat most runners never accomplish. But doing it after half of one lung has been removed — impossible, right? Not for Tania Tuluie. At 54, the elite San Diego just ran her eighth Boston Marathon, and her third since a surprise lung surgery left her wondering if she’d ever be able to run again.
