Swedish: an Overview
Serving our communities through exceptional, personalized care for more than 100 years
Since 1910, Swedish has been the region's hallmark for excellence in health care. In fact, in an independent research study conducted by the National Research Corp., Swedish is consistently named the area's best hospital, with the best doctors, nurses and overall care in a variety of specialty areas.
Swedish has grown to become the largest nonprofit health provider in the Greater Seattle area with 11,000 employees, more than 2,800 physicians and 1,700 volunteers. We have:
Five hospital campuses (First Hill, Cherry Hill, Ballard, Edmonds and Issaquah)
An emergency room and specialty center in Redmond (East King County) and the Mill Creek area in Everett
Swedish Medical Group – a network of more than 100 primary-care and specialty clinics located throughout the Greater Puget Sound area
Affiliations with suburban hospitals and physician groups
In addition to general medical and surgical care including robotic-assisted surgery, Swedish is known as a regional referral center, providing specialized treatment in areas such as cardiovascular care, cancer care, neuroscience, orthopedics, high-risk obstetrics, pediatric specialties, organ transplantation and clinical research.
Swedish is affiliated with Providence Health & Services, which is a Catholic, not-for-profit organization founded by the Sisters of Providence in 1856 with 27 hospitals, 214 physician clinics and almost 53,000 employees across five states. Based in Renton, Wash., Providence Health & Services provides strategic and management services to integrated health-care systems in Alaska, California, Montana, Oregon and Washington state.
