44 Swedish providers named as Top Doctors in 2017 by Seattle Met magazine

August 08, 2017

We are proud to share that 44 Swedish-affiliated providers were included in Seattle Met magazine’s 12th annual list of 2017 Top Doctors, Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants. More than 1,000 doctors, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners in the Seattle metropolitan area participated in the Top Doctors 2017 survey, for which the magazine asked, “If you or a loved one needed medical care, whom would you choose?

“We have exceptional caregivers at Swedish and I am honored to work with such dedicated and passionate providers,” said Dr. Guy Hudson, chief executive officer for Swedish. “When providers are included in a top doc list like this, it means that their peers are highlighting them as their caregiver of choice in that field, which is truly an exceptional testament to a provider’s commitment to his or her patients.”  

Congratulations to all of the caregivers included in the final list. The August issue of Seattle Met magazine is available on newsstands now. Below is a full list of all Swedish affiliated physicians and advanced practice clinicians named on the Seattle Metropolitan Magazine 2017 list:
