Department of Pediatrics
Our Department of Pediatrics is a large team of providers focused on caring for children from infancy through adolescence. With over thirty Pediatricians and Advanced Practice Clinicians on our team, we offer preventative and general medical care, from screenings and immunizations to treatment of illness and injury. SCMG’s Department of Pediatrics maintains a strong relationship with Rady Children’s Hospital; any required inpatient admissions are at Rady Children’s Hospital. We also provide specialty care for our patients both at Scripps Clinic and in collaboration with Rady Children’s Pediatric Specialists. Our pediatric providers assist in staffing the Level 1 Newborn Nursery at Scripps La Jolla Hospital. In every circumstance, our goal is to offer children, their parents and caregivers the compassionate, highly competent care we would want for our own families.
Department Chair: Erik Hogen, MD
