"In this beautiful natural setting, in a hospital that was built green to run green, it is imperative that we do all we can to support mothers and families of young children to feed and raise those children in healthy natural ways,” says Madeline Marcus, pediatric hospitalist.
“We at Swedish want to be active in supporting members of the Eastside community that have similar goals, and a celebration with Pediatrics and Obstetrics aims to do just that."
