About Our Program

Prompt follow-up care

If your child’s physician refers you to the Swedish Pediatric ER, he or she can call ahead to give us your child’s complete medical information. And, to ensure continuity of care and give you peace of mind, we follow up with your child’s primary care physician by phone or fax the very next day.

Care for all

As a nonprofit organization, Swedish Medical Center continues its long-standing dedication to treating all patients who come for care, regardless of their ability to pay.
