Scripps affiliates with Brawley hospital
San Diego Union-Tribune

A new affiliation agreement between Scripps Health and Pioneers Memorial Healthcare District in Brawley will be the health system’s first foray outside San Diego County.

The two parties are set to sign a two-year pact Tuesday in which Scripps will act as a consultant, providing training and advice on topics ranging from quality improvement to cost reduction.

Chris Van Gorder, Scripps’ chief executive, was careful to note that his organization will not be assigning any clinical providers to Pioneers.
