Scripps Health unveiled a master plan that will touch five hospital campuses across San Diego County, representing the largest building program in its 125-year history.
The largest project is at Scripps Mercy Hospital San Diego, where an existing acute care building will be replaced with a new 710,000-square-foot, seismically sound tower featuring 12 stories above ground and three below. Construction is expected to begin in 2022, and finish in 2027.
Plans also include seismic retrofitting acute care buildings at Scripps Mercy Hospital Chula Vista and Scripps Green hospital campuses, which is slated to begin in 2022 at Scripps Mercy Chula Vista and in 2027 at Scripps Green.
A new seven-story, 401,000 square-foot hospital tower will be built at Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla, featuring a women’s health center. Construction is expected to begin in 2021 and conclude in 2024.
Scripps Memorial Hospital Encinitas will receive a new 185,000-square-foot, three-story acute care building. Two outpatient cancer centers will also be built at Scripps MD Anderson sites in San Diego and La Jolla.
