Today's health care environment is radically different from 1890, when Scripps' Mercy Hospital was originally founded. Tackling the challenges of today (and tomorrow) requires new ways of providing care, leading teams, and engaging people to provide timely, cost-effective care. Tour attendees will have an opportunity to see how value stream efforts, innovation/model units, and the organization's daily management system enable it to provide timely, cost-effective care.
Established in 1890 by the Sisters of Mercy, Scripps Mercy Hospital is San Diego’s premier health care provider. With campuses in San Diego and Chula Vista, it provides medical expertise, leading-edge technology and a very special style of care. As San Diego County’s largest hospital, Scripps Mercy offers a minimally invasive robotic surgery program, emergency services and a level I trauma center, a nationally designated Center of Excellence for Bariatric Surgery and other acute medical/surgical services, as well as a certified STEMI receiving center (for heart attacks) and one of the county’s only chest pain centers. These are just a few reasons why Scripps Mercy has repeatedly been named among the top hospitals in the nation. www.scripps.org
