Why does Issaquah need a hospital?
Until now, Greater Issaquah-Sammamish had been one of the few communities of its size without a hospital. And with the community growing as fast as it is, the need for a local hospital becomes greater every day. The number of people coming to our former Issaquah campus (now Swedish Lake Sammamish), which opened in 2005, was a good indication of just how critical the need was. In 2009 alone, we had more than 50,000 patient visits. We are thrilled to be able to meet the health-care needs of the community with this new medical center in the Issaquah Highlands.
Where is Swedish Issaquah located?
The new campus will be located at 751 N.E. Blakely Drive in the Issaquah Highlands, just off I-90 at Exit 18.
What services does the hospital provide?
The new campus provides a broad range of inpatient and outpatient medical services including oncology, cardiac care, obstetrics, pediatric specialty care, emergency services, primary care and a host of other medical and surgical services and specialists. See a list of our physicians.
