Welcome to Scripps Clinic Medical Group
Bringing the Best of Healthcare to San Diego for Over 95 Years
Scripps Clinic Medical Group (SCMG) is a multispecialty practice featuring one of the most diverse, accomplished medical teams in the country; over 950 physicians and Advanced Practice Clinicians across 60+ specialties comprise our membership. Composed of 9 departments and approximately 60 divisions, our average department size is 100 members and our average division size is approximately 15 members.
Medical care at Scripps Clinic began in 1924 with the creation of the Scripps Metabolic Clinic via the foresight of Ellen Browning Scripps. As the Scripps Clinic’s reputation for quality and diversity of clinical and scientific disciplines and graduate medical education programs grew, a need for its renowned and burgeoning clinical staff to organize became evident. Hence, in the 1970s, Scripps Clinic Medical Group was born. SCMG works in collaboration with Scripps Health to provide high quality comprehensive primary, secondary and tertiary medical care to their patients across San Diego and the Southwest United States, offering care at large and small clinical practice sites in La Jolla (Torrey Pines campus Geisel Pavilion and La Jolla campus Anderson Medical Pavilion), Bankers Hill, Carmel Valley, Del Mar, Rancho Bernardo, Encinitas, Coronado, Rancho San Diego, Santee, Mission Valley, Hillcrest, and Loma Portal/Liberty Station. Moreover, SCMG is recognized widely as a premiere local and regional tertiary referral center for the evaluation and management of a multitude of difficult to diagnose or treat disorders. We provide inpatient medical care at Scripps’ world-renowned hospitals: Scripps Green Hospital, Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla, Scripps Memorial Hospital Encinitas, and Scripps Mercy Hospital.
Inpatient and outpatient, we are proud to provide over 1.5 million patient visits per year.
As Scripps’ 100th anniversary, and SCMG’s 50th anniversary, approach, we will be celebrating the past many decades that we have honored Scripps’ and SCMG’s mission to bring the very best of medical expertise and care to San Diego residents and all who seek the expertise of SCMG clinicians.
