Watch the daily happenings at the hospital construction site via this new web-camera link.
After a brief hibernation on the site at the end of 2009, construction started back up at the Swedish/Issaquah Campus site in the Issaquah Highlands in mid-January. Work began on the facility’s foundation, including pouring concrete and bringing in a large crane that will be used to erect the structural steel (the “skeleton”) of the entire medical complex.
From here on out, construction will move at an aggressive pace. Over the next nine months, the new hospital and outpatient center will take shape — a good portion of the outside of the facility will be completed. And, the roof of the new campus will be in place just in time for the fall season. At that point, significant interior work will begin.
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? Swedish has that opportunity on its new campus currently under construction in the Issaquah Highlands. In this video, learn about the new medical center which will open in two phases in 2011 and 2012. And, learn how Swedish is re-envisioning health care for the thriving Issaquah/Sammamish community.
Join us for an upcoming information session about the new Swedish Medical Center being built in the Issaquah Highlands. The meeting will be on Monday, Oct. 19 from 5:30-7 p.m. at Sammamish City Hall. Swedish representatives will be available to talk about the new facility and answer your questions. See you there!

Foundation excavation on the construction site was completed in September to avoid inclement weather, and foundation work for the new facility will start in January 2010.
