Emergency Cardiac Care at Four Swedish Campuses Recognized by the Washington State Department of Health

SEATTLE, Dec. 20, 2011 – Swedish recently learned that the Washington State Department of Health (DOH) certified four of its campuses to provide emergency cardiac care services to patients throughout the Puget Sound region. Swedish Cherry Hill and Swedish Edmonds received Level 1 designations, and Swedish First Hill and Swedish/Ballard received Level 2 designations.

The DOH recently developed the emergency cardiac system to provide a consistent, statewide certification program that recognizes the level of emergency care available to cardiac patients in medical facilities across Washington state.

This new designation confirms Swedish’s long standing role as a leader in providing critical cardiac care in emergency settings. The Level 1 designation for Swedish Cherry Hill and Swedish Edmonds signifies that both campuses have the full range of equipment and staffing to provide 24/7 percutaneous (catheter-based) cardiac interventions as a provision of the Level 1 emergency cardiac care designation.
