Volunteering at the Swedish Issaquah Campus


Located at 751 NE Blakely Drive, Swedish Medical Center/Issaquah opened on November 1, 2011. We’ve had a tremendous interest and response from the community, and would love to engage individuals about current and future needs as our program evolves.

We hold public information volunteer sessions quarterly so please apply online to start the process. Invitations will be sent out for these information sessions. The application also includes our Redmond and Mill Creek facilities.
