May 06, 2015

Swedish is excited to announce that Jennifer Graves, Chief Executive and Nurse Executive at Swedish Ballard and Interim Chief Executive for Swedish Edmonds, has accepted the full-time position of Chief Executive for Swedish Edmonds, effective June 1, 2015. With this new role, she will step down as Chief Executive and Nurse Executive at Swedish Ballard.

Jennifer continues to demonstrate a deep passion for creating healthier communities and advocating for our patients, families and caregivers. She successfully led the Swedish Ballard campus for more than six years. During her time as Chief Executive and Nurse Executive, the campus developed and built a five-story Medical Office Building, opened a new Cancer Care Center and Post-Partum Unit and will soon open a Level II Nursery on Monday, April 27. She was integral in bringing TomoTherapy to the Ballard community and creating a successful plan to begin new inpatient behavioral health services on campus. One of her greatest accomplishments is leading the campus to achieve Pathway to Excellence® designation, making it the first hospital in Washington state to earn such an honor for nursing.

At Swedish Edmonds, Jennifer will continue to focus on creating a positive practice environment for Swedish caregivers and improving quality and safety for our patients. She is deeply involved in the Swedish Edmonds expansion project underway and is working to bring staff and leaders together to collaboratively design a bright future for the campus. Looking forward, she also hopes to continue to foster meaningful relationships with the community.

Please join us in congratulating Jennifer on her many accomplishments and new role at Swedish Edmonds!
