The last steel beam for Swedish’s new Issaquah hospital and outpatient center was lifted into place Aug. 6 in a special topping-off ceremony. The beam was signed by construction workers and hospital officials before being lifted into place atop the structure. The topping-off completes a construction milestone en route to the facility’s phase-one opening in July 2011 in the Issaquah Highlands. Once completed, it will be the first new hospital built in King County in 25 years and will include an ambulatory care center, five-story medical office building and acute-care community hospital.
