Scripps Mercy Hospital in San Diego

Scripps Mercy Hospital is a private hospital founded in 1890, making it the oldest hospital in San Diego County. It has campuses in Hillcrest and Chula Vista. Scripps Mercy has 1,300 doctors on staff and 700 acute care beds.

In 1890, the Sisters of Mercy first opened a five-bed dispensary in downtown San Diego, calling it St. Joseph’s. It was later replaced by a three-story hospital located in Hillcrest called St. Joseph’s Sanitarium and was renamed to St. Joseph’s Hospital in 1904. This was the first hospital accredited by the American College of Surgeons. It was the only hospital for San Diego until County Hospital was built in 1903.

The existing hospital building was built in 1925 and named Mercy Hospital. A second medical facility, the Bay General Hospital, was founded in Chula Vista. By 1986 the Bay General joined the Scripps Health system, as did Mercy Hospital in 1995. Before the hospital came under Scripps Health, they were a part of Catholic Health Care West. The two hospitals were combined on the Hillcrest campus in 2004. Nuns still work in the hospitals, but mostly in spiritual roles.

The Scripps Mercy Hospital is located at 4077 Fifth Ave. in San Diego.
