Swedish News

SEATTLE, Nov. 29, 2011 – Swedish is proud to announce that the Washington State Department of Health (DOH) designated four of its campuses – Cherry Hill, First Hill, Ballard and Edmonds – to provide stroke care. The Washington State DOH Emergency Cardiac and Stroke system was created to provide a statewide designation program that recognizes the level of stroke care capabilities available to stroke patients in medical facilities across the state. The Swedish Stroke System of Care has been certified by The Joint Commission as a Primary Stroke Center since 2004.

Swedish Cherry Hill is one of only four hospital campuses in King County to receive Level I designation.

Washington DOH designated Swedish Cherry Hill as a Level I facility, recognizing their leadership in providing stroke care to people throughout Seattle and the Puget Sound region. Swedish Cherry Hill provides comprehensive stroke care – including acute thrombolytic interventions to break clots down and restore circulation, advanced diagnostic imaging to identify a blocked artery, and catheter-based interventions to re-open arteries. Swedish admits about 1,000 stroke patients annually, and provides 24/7 acute stroke care. In addition, Swedish Cherry Hill is engaged in clinical research utilizing advanced diagnostic imaging and offering novel therapies for acute stroke patients.
