SCRIPPS IS NO. 1 IN SAN DIEGO!
Ellen Browning Scripps—Scripps’ founding benefactress—fell and broke her hip in 1922, requiring her to convalesce in La Jolla’s tiny sanitarium. Frustrated by the less than adequate facilities, she gave money to establish Scripps Memorial Hospital at 464 Prospect Street in downtown La Jolla. In 1924, the hospital opened with an operating room, a nursery and 44 patient beds. While modest, it provided La Jolla’s small seaside community with the latest and greatest in medical care and offered its talented medical staff opportunities to innovate in their respective specialties. Today, Scripps is No. 1 in San Diego!
A lovely Charcuterie board along with wine and beverages will be served. Complimentary parking vouchers will be available to guests.
