Group Health inpatients will receive care at Swedish Seattle effective today

January 19, 2016
Beginning today, inpatient care for Group Health patients will be provided at Swedish Seattle (First Hill and Cherry Hill). This includes emergent and planned admissions, surgeries and procedures. The exception is elective cardiac surgery, which will be provided at Swedish beginning Monday, Feb. 1.

“We have been planning this transition for several months and are excited about our relationship with Group Health,” said June Altaras, chief executive for Swedish Seattle and acute care across Swedish. “I expect we will learn from each other and together will focus on providing the best care possible for our patients.”

Group Health identified Swedish as their Seattle-area adult HMO hospital provider in August 2014. Swedish First Hill welcomed Group Health’s maternity services in February 2015.

If you are a Group Health patient and have questions regarding inpatient care, please contact your provider.
