Happy Holidays to You and Yours!

Dear Family and Friends,

As you know, this has been a challenging yet rewarding year for me. Much of this year was spent at Scripps Mercy Hospital. The phenomenal doctors, nurses, and staff at Scripps Mercy Hospital and Scripps Cancer Center literally saved my life.

I have decided to give a generous gift to their “Caring for the Future” campaign. Most personally significant to me in this campaign is the plan for the Outpatient Infusion Center at the Cancer Center where I am a patient. My donation is a very small token of my appreciation. The greatest gift I could receive this season is that perhaps you will consider making a donation as well. Any amount, large or small, will make a difference!

As 2011 approaches, please take time to reflect on your many blessings and give thanks. I count each and every one of you as a blessing and I thank you for your love and support. I am healthy and living a wonderfully normal life once again. I am looking forward to a joyous New Year, a year that will include the birth of a Granddaughter! Life is good.

Wishing you all the very merriest of holidays!

With much love,  Reba

Caring for the Future

The Campaign for Scripps Mercy Hospital

No other part of our nonprofit hospital speaks to the mission of Scripps Mercy more than our emergency room and trauma department. They are the gateway to our hospital, open to all who turn to Scripps Mercy for care.

We are the longest-established hospital in the region, caring for people who live and work in central and southern San Diego County. From downtown and Point Loma to Chula Vista and the Mexican border, our service area includes nearly 1 million people.

At our San Diego campus, we operate one of the busiest emergency departments in the region, with more than 51,000 emergency room visits annually. Our Level 1 trauma center treats 2,500 patients each year – the most in San Diego County.

Although our programs and specialties have grown throughout the decades, the communities we serve have grown even faster. Scripps Mercy is at a critical point and must expand with extensive renovations in these vital service areas to continue to meet the needs of our patients:

Emergency Department and Trauma Center: Our facility will nearly double, from a 27-bed emergency department, which includes two trauma bays, to 43 beds with three trauma bays.

Intensive Care Unit: Our three intensive care units will expand and modernize, and additional ICU space will be added.

Operating Rooms: Two operating rooms will become robotic surgical suites equipped with the most advanced technology.

Scripps Cancer Center at Scripps Mercy Hospital: Our services will grow to include an outpatient infusion center and women’s breast care center.

Mercy Hospital Foundation has launched Caring for the Future: The Campaign for Scripps Mercy Hospital to support the hospital’s historic modernization and expansion project. To date, more than half of our $50 million goal has been raised. Phase I of the campaign has been funded and construction has begun on the new Conrad Prebys Emergency and Trauma Center. We are well on our way to funding Phase II and, with your help; we will continue a legacy of quality care that will benefit our community for many years to come.
