Scripps To Build Clinic On Same Street As Tri-City Medical Center
Scripps Health, once accused of “patient-poaching” by Tri-City Medical Center, plans to open a three-story, 85,000-square-foot office building and urgent care center in Oceanside on the same street as its rival. “We are hoping to break ground early next year and anticipate being open for patient care in 2020,” Scripps Senior Director of Public Relations Janice Collins said this week in a written response to questions. The vacant, fenced property at the corner of Jefferson Street and Vista Way is the former site of a Saturn car dealership. The proposed medical building, which would include physicians offices, examination and treatment rooms, and a multi-story parking structure, is about a mile west of Tri-City Medical Center at Vista Way and Thunder Drive.
