Care for All
Swedish has been woven into the fabric of the Northwest for more than 100 years with a mandate to take care of everyone who comes through our doors, regardless of their ability to pay.
Charity care in the last year included everything from flu shots to heart surgery, amounting to more than $35 million in service. That commitment to treating the uninsured includes a 4,000-square-foot clinic where physicians see patients at no charge.
Our commitment to the community extends beyond our doors as well. Through our partnership with state leaders, we are able to provide community health activities and outreach, education and subsidies for Medicare. Combined, these community benefits exceeded $134 million in 2011 and include specific programs such as Global to Local and African-American Community Outreach.
