La Jolla Pulmonary and Critical Care grew from a successful Pulmonary practice beginning in the 1960s which expanded at Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla during the 1990s. Since 20027 we have provided a 24 hour in house Intensivist service while maintaining a Pulmonary inpatient and outpatient consultative practice. Our contractural relationship with the hospital has allowed us to remain competitive and independent.
