SAN DIEGO — Scripps Health was the only San Diego-based employer to be ranked in Fortune magazine’s list of top 100 companies to work for.

According to Fortune, “professional opportunities abound for workers” at Scripps Health, including tuition reimbursement and scholarships, training courses, career training, on-site childcare and fitness classes.
