Scripps Health is committed to combating cancer.

That’s why they mobilized the collective resources of five hospital campuses, their affiliated physicians and a renowned research center to form the Scripps Cancer Center.

These providers work collaboratively toward prevention, early detection and coordinated treatment.

Scripps Health is a nonprofit, community-based health care delivery network in San Diego, California, that includes: Four acute-care hospitals on five campuses, more than 2,600 affiliated physicians, extensive outpatient care network, home health care and associated support services.

As a result of the July 2000 reaffiliation with Scripps Clinic and August 2008 introduction of Scripps Coastal Medical Center, Scripps Health now has over 12,000 employees and cares for patients at 19 outpatient facilities throughout San Diego County.

The Scripps Cancer Center’s multidisciplinary approach ensures a comprehensive treatment plan that pairs leading-edge technology with an experienced, respectful care staff who are sensitive to the whole person and a range of healing approaches.

Patient’s benefit from a collective array of cancer-specific personnel and services, as well as vigorous dialog between researchers and clinicians that brings the latest medical knowledge bedside. Throughout treatment, a patient’s care team members meet regularly in cancer conferences to keep up to date on that specific patient’s needs and progress. This collaborative approach ensures that the expertise of a number of medical professionals works concertedly to develop an optimal, individualized care plan.

Implementation of these care options begins in conversation with the patient: What are his or her goals, and how can they best proceed together?
