Prebys Cardiovascular Institute, 9888 Genesee Avenue, La Jolla, CA

         SAN DIEGO, CA – McCarthy Building Companies, Inc., the nation’s leading healthcare builder, has completed construction of the new 383,000-square-foot Prebys Cardiovascular Institute and adjacent 26,000-square-foot central energy plant on the Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla campus, located at 9888 Genesee Ave. in La Jolla, Calif. 

         As the design-assist general contractor, McCarthy was retained by Scripps Health to perform preconstruction services for the $456 million Prebys Cardiovascular Institute before breaking ground in May 2011.

  HOK Architects was the project architect.  Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. served as the construction management firm on behalf of Scripps.  The health system will begin treating patients at the new facility in mid March.

         “This is an exciting achievement for us,” said Scripps Health Corporate Vice President, Construction and Facilities, Bruce Rainey.  “The new Prebys Cardiovascular Institute reflects the most advanced healthcare design principles together with remarkably high standards of construction.

“  It stands as a model not only for future Scripps facilities, but also for specialized heart care facilities across the country.”

         The Prebys Cardiovascular Institute is the cornerstone of a 25-year master plan unveiled in November 2010 that is transforming the Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla campus.

         The new Prebys Cardiovascular Institute will be a destination hospital for cardiac care on the West Coast. The facility will provide cardiovascular patients with the most advanced treatment options available, while also serving as a center for medical research, clinical trials and graduate medical education.
