Scripps opens innovative outpatient building
San Diego Union-Tribune

A newly-opened $130 million outpatient clinic next to Prebys Cardiovascular Institute in La Jolla, provides quick access and enhanced capabilities for doctors with Scripps Clinic Medical Group.

The 175,000-square-foot John R. Anderson V Medical Pavilion is one of the first in the state to contain cardiac catheterization labs outside of an acute-care hospital. Scripps worked with Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles to pass legislation in 2012 that approved the change provided that immediate access to a full inpatient operating room is maintained.
