Swedish/Issaquah Art

Save the date! The Swedish/Issaquah Grand Opening Event is on Saturday, July 9 from 10am to 5pm. It’s an exciting time, and we’re looking forward to opening this innovative, patient-centric facility to serve the residents of Greater Issaquah/Sammamish and beyond.

THE ART OF HEALING

The Swedish Medical Center art collection is made possible by donations, gifts to the Art Endowment Fund, and a small percentage of the construction budgets of new projects and remodels.

The reason for the artwork is simple: art heals.

When patients become absorbed in a work of art, their bodies’ physiology actually changes,
moving from sensations of stress and fear to feelings of relaxation and hope. Since we know the
mind can be a powerful ally in the battle against disease, Swedish has become an avid proponent
of art in its public spaces.

Today the Swedish art collection includes more than 2,000 original pieces from world-class artists
throughout the Pacific Northwest and the Pacific Rim. The pieces you see at Swedish/Issaquah
continue the tradition begun by Swedish Medical Center in the 1960s to promote healing through
art.
