Founded by the Sisters of Mercy in 1890, Scripps Mercy Hospital (formerly Mercy Hospital and Medical Center) is San Diego's oldest hospital, growing from its beginnings as a clinic to its present facility. Scripps Mercy is a 520-bed acute care hospital, the largest private teaching hospital in the San Diego area. The Sisters of Mercy are dedicated to the highest caliber of health care, and vow to serve the poor, the sick and the uneducated. It is their profound belief that the highest goals of patient care can be attained by education and dedication to service.

As a major teaching hospital, Scripps provides a primary site for the clinical education of more than 50 residents, as well as a secondary training site for residents from the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) and the Naval Medical Center. In June 1997, Scripps Mercy Hospital was acknowledged by the physician magazine "California Medicine" as one of the top 20 hospitals in Southern California.
