Scripps Health has acquired the assets of Pacific Coast Women’s Health Medical Group, whose physicians become part of Scripps Coastal Medical Group under a transaction announced Sept. 1.
Dr. Michele Gerber, Dr. Tricia Enyedy Rambur and nurse practitioner Kelly Engstrom join 159-physician Scripps Coastal as part of the deal. The two physicians are on staff at Scripps Memorial Hospital Encinitas.
The women’s health group, now relocating to Scripps Coastal offices at 320 Santa Fe Drive, Suite 300, provides care to patients at all stages, from pregnancy to menopause.
Scripps Coastal’s president, Dr. Kevin Hirsch, said in a news release the staff at Pacific Coast Women’s have a reputation for providing high-quality personal care – “and that level of attention will continue, along with enhanced access to the Scripps Health network.
Gerber said in the release the medical group has worked with Scripps Health for many years and that “we look forward to offering our patients even greater access to the excellent patient care services offered at Scripps.”
Scripps Health is a nonprofit health system based in San Diego. It treats more than 700,000 patients per year through its network of 3,000 affiliated physicians and more than 15,000 employees at its five acute-care hospitals and facilities including 28 outpatient centers and clinics.
