We’re just a few months away from opening stage one of the new Swedish Medical Center. We hope you save the date Saturday, July 9 for our grand opening community event that will include tours, activities, giveaways and fun for the whole family. And, hopefully a lot of sunshine and NO rain! We’re combining our event with Highlands Days, so it is sure to be a day full of celebration.
Our new facility in Issaquah will create many career opportunities in Issaquah, as well as at our existing Swedish facilities. In fact, some positions previously not recently available at other Swedish facilities will open up, due to employees accepting new positions in Issaquah. Currently, there are 25 new jobs posted for our new Issaquah Hospital. You can find them at www.swedish.org/careers.
Throughout 2011, new openings will be listed for other Swedish facilities and services (such as our Seattle hospital locations, area physician clinics, and Visiting Nurse Services program) and for our future Issaquah campus, as well as for our freestanding Ambulatory Care Centers in Redmond and Mill Creek. Some of the areas for which we anticipate opportunities early in the year include:
As a reminder, the new medical center is being opened in two stages. The first stage is the opening of the medical-office building and outpatient center in July 2011.
This will be a big year for the Swedish project, with the first phase of the medical center opening in July.
We have come a long way in a year. Here’s what’s happening in February on the construction site:

What’s happening at Swedish Issaquah?
Happy New Year to you and yours! As we enter the mid part of the month, Swedish continues to work at an aggressive pace at the Issaquah construction site.
The exterior finish work will be complete by end of January for both the hospital wings and the medical office building, showcasing a mix of pre-cast concrete, Swiss pearl, metal panel, brick masonry and glass curtainwall.
Interior build-out continues throughout all floors ranging from paint, mechanical and electrical equipment trim, ceramic tile, ceilings and casework installation. Concurrently around the site, ground preparation for landscaping and irrigation systems continues.
Work continues at a fast pace at Swedish/Issaquah. Specifically, the crew is enclosing the building with exterior finishes to protect interior work from the cold, windy and wet weather coming our way. Mechanical, plumbing, electrical and drywall work continues within the interior spaces of the hospital wings, while painting and installing ceiling assemblies and floor finishes will finish up on level 1 of the medical office building. Between January 2010 (when major work started) through end of August 2010, construction has generated 709 tons of mixed-waste material, with 643 tons of it diverted to recycling.
