SEATTLE, Nov. 29, 2011 – Swedish is proud to announce that the Washington State Department of Health (DOH) designated four of its campuses – Cherry Hill, First Hill, Ballard and Edmonds – to provide stroke care. The Washington State DOH Emergency Cardiac and Stroke system was created to provide a statewide designation program that recognizes the level of stroke care capabilities available to stroke patients in medical facilities across the state. The Swedish Stroke System of Care has been certified by The Joint Commission as a Primary Stroke Center since 2004.
Swedish Cherry Hill is one of only four hospital campuses in King County to receive Level I designation.
Washington DOH designated Swedish Cherry Hill as a Level I facility, recognizing their leadership in providing stroke care to people throughout Seattle and the Puget Sound region. Swedish Cherry Hill provides comprehensive stroke care – including acute thrombolytic interventions to break clots down and restore circulation, advanced diagnostic imaging to identify a blocked artery, and catheter-based interventions to re-open arteries. Swedish admits about 1,000 stroke patients annually, and provides 24/7 acute stroke care. In addition, Swedish Cherry Hill is engaged in clinical research utilizing advanced diagnostic imaging and offering novel therapies for acute stroke patients.
EDMONDS, WASH., Nov. 28, 2011 – More than 500 hundred people attended the Swedish Edmonds Imagine Gala, Celebrating Change – an event benefitting the hospital and the community. Held Nov. 18 at Lynnwood Convention Center, the Gala included live music, dinner, as well as silent and live auctions that raised more than $420,000 to support the funding of charity care and a major expansion of cancer services at Swedish Edmonds.
A new two-story, medical oncology facility on the hospital’s campus, as well as renovation of the adjacent existing radiation therapy center, will provide comprehensive cancer-care services close to home for residents of Edmonds and other communities in north King and south Snohomish counties. The new cancer facility is on schedule to open in 2012.
