SEATTLE, May 25, 2011 – Swedish today announced that Mike Carter, the lead administrator of Swedish Edmonds (formerly Stevens Hospital in Edmonds), has been appointed to serve as chief administrative officer of Swedish’s First Hill campus, which is the largest facility in Swedish’s five-hospital network.
Carter is filling a role vacated by Swedish’s former chief operating officer (COO) Cal Knight, who left in April to lead a health-care system in California. Carter became CEO of Stevens Hospital in 2006 and was responsible for a dramatic turnaround that resulted in significant improvements in clinical quality, financial performance, and patient, physician and employee satisfaction.
