Swedish Medical Center’s mission is to improve the health and well-being of each person we serve. A crucial part of fulfilling this mission is our financial assistance (charity care) program. This program offers free or discounted services for those who cannot afford care, are underinsured or have no insurance at all. The program provides financial assistance in cases where annual family income is between zero and 400 percent of the federal poverty level, and ensures that financial constraints are not a barrier to receiving medically necessary care.
