Swedish Issaquah Announces New Partnership with Reach Out and Read Program 


Swedish Issaquah Primary Care is excited to launch the Reach Out and Read program. Reach Out and Read helps children prepare for kindergarten by partnering with doctors to prescribe books and encourage families to read together.
As part of the program, children will receive free books at well-exam visits with Swedish Issaquah Primary Care providers. In addition, a children’s reading library will be created in the practice waiting room, so families can enjoy reading together when they visit the office.
 
This program was introduced at Swedish Issaquah by Family Practice Physician Kathryn Tonder. “When Reach Out and Read was offered at my previous practice, I saw the benefits of introducing literacy to parents and children as part of their healthcare visits. With Reach out and Read, we encourage and track reading development, just like we celebrate other important milestones in a child’s life like walking or talking.”
 
The program is funded by the generosity of Drs. Guy and Carmen Hudson. Through their generosity Reach Out and Read and Swedish Issaquah are partnering together to support literacy for children. Dr. Hudson is the Executive Director for Pediatrics and Pediatric Specialties and the Chief of Staff at Swedish Issaquah.

This program is 100% donor funded. To make a donation in support of this program, click here

This year, 2013, marks the first year a subspecialty board in Urogynecology was offered and approved by the American Board of Medical Specialties. Historically, urogynecology has been practiced for over a decade by urologists and gynecologists who have dedicated their practice to this specialty.

Women seeking medical care with prolapse, urinary and fecal incontinence, bladder control problems and for restoring pelvic floor function, can now receive care from FPMRS physicians who are specially trained and certified in this highly sub-specialized field of medicine.

Congratulations to Drs. LaCombe, Plaskon and Miller.
