Medical Excellence Every Step of the Way. Scripps has been caring for San Diegans for nearly 90 years. In 2013, Scripps was recognized among the top five large health systems in the nation by Truven, and we’re honored that many of our medical specialists are consistently ranked among the finest regionally and nationally. This year, Scripps La Jolla and Scripps Green hospitals were once again recognized by USNews and World Report for excellence in heart care and heart surgery. But these accolades just make us work even harder to make sure we continue to give every patient the best possible care.
