Come See the New Swedish/Issaquah This Saturday

It’s not every day you get a chance to build a hospital from the ground up. In fact, the last time it happened in King County was 25 years ago. Help us celebrate this historic milestone this Saturday, July 9 from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. at the new Swedish/Issaquah, and get an up close and personal view of an innovative approach to health care that’s all about helping the community be well, get well and stay well.

The Cure for the Common Hospital - Join Us at the Swedish Issaquah Opening Event!

What if you could build a brand new hospital from scratch? How would you build it to be the most patient-friendly, forward-thinking facility of its kind?

Someday, there will be a hospital built to challenge our idea of what a hospital should be.

Someday, there will be a hospital focused on both healthier patients and a healthier planet.

And someday, there will be a hospital that is as much a place to gather as it is to heal.

That someday is now.

Join us on Saturday, July 9, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. to explore the cure for the common hospital. It’s an exciting time, and we’re looking forward to opening this innovative, patient-centric facility to serve the residents of Greater Issaquah/Sammamish and East King County.
