Scripps Health Reopens Coronado Clinic Previously Closed for Pandemic

Scripps Health this week reopened the last of its outpatient clinics that had been temporarily closed in March after state and county officials issued shelter-in-place orders in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

Patients may once again visit Scripps Clinic Coronado at 1317A Ynez Place, Scripps Clinic Liberty Station in San Diego, and Scripps Clinic Bariatric and General Surgery in San Diego’s Hillcrest neighborhood for the same range of medical services that were available at those sites prior to their closure, with the exception of radiology, laboratory and Scripps HealthExpress services at Scripps Clinic Liberty Station which have not yet been restored there. During the closures, patients had been redirected to other Scripps sites that remained open.
