feedback about Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla
For such a modern state of the art facility,I was very surprised to have an experience where I got disconnected 3 times and never got a nurse in the ICU ,3 other times after there shift changes trying to get information regarding my sister on Life support.All I got was a recording that said they were busy and a system that didn't offer an opportunity to leave a message in order to check on My loved one. that sucks!!!
Emergency Room. Medically they are good. Billing wise they are not. They use contracted doctors from La Jolla Emergency Specialists who are out-of-network and not contracted with your insurance. You will get a surprise bill for the balance. How do you request an in-network doctor during an emergency?
I cant say enough positive things about this hospital. Staff is very friendly and skilled.
Arvin in the nuclear department conducted some tests which took a lot of time. He stood out as among the top in terms of care, skill, and making me feel comfortable. He honestly made my time the best it could possibly be. He is the BEST and i will alway remember my experience with him!
As a first-time mom who was new to San Diego, I was especially nervous about the quality of care I would receive while pregnant. Originally, I chose Mary Birch to give birth with Dr. Daneshmand. However, when he moved to Scripps La Jolla I followed him (since I couldn’t see delivering with anyone else). I did this unsure of whether my experience with the nurses and hospital would match the excellent care I received with Dr. Daneshmand personally. The 15 plus days spent in antepartum and labor/delivery absolutely wonderful. The nurses were personal and friendly. They went out of their way to show that I was truly cared about while making sure I was medically taken care of.
Scripps missed its annual budget by $20 million last year. It sounds like it was a wake-up call... The management needs major improvement. They need major restructuring in every aspect of the organization.
CEO "We've got to shift our organizational structures around to be able to deal with the new world of health care delivery, find ways of lowering our costs significantly,” Van Gorder said. “If we don't, we will not be able to compete.”
Scripps Health reorganization to include layoffs and needed asap...
Scripps Hospital is among the facilities affected by a reorganization plan underway at parent company Scripps Health
Scripps Health will pursue layoffs in 2018 as part of a reorganization strategy that emphasizes lower costs and greater reliance on caring for patients outside of its five hospitals.
In a recent memo to all of the health system’s 15,000 employees and 3,000 affiliated doctors, Chris Van Gorder, Scripps’ chief executive officer, says that cuts are necessary to remain competitive in a health care world where health insurance companies increasingly consider low prices as a main factor in contracting and patients are more often shopping around for services as deductibles increase.
