Scripps Health, Rady’s unite on hospice
San Diego Union-Tribune

Scripps Health will partner with Rady Children’s Hospital San Diego to offer pediatric hospice services to children from throughout the region, the health system announced Tuesday.

Chris Van Gorder, chief executive of Scripps Health, said the agreement formalizes a relationship that has existed since his organization entered the hospice realm last year after San Diego Hospice, then the region’s largest hospice provider, folded amid the pressures of a looming Medicare audit.
