About Us

Serving our communities through exceptional, personalized care for more than 100 years

Since our beginnings in 1910, Swedish has been the region's standard-bearer for the highest-quality health care at the best value.

Swedish is the largest nonprofit health care provider in the greater Seattle area with five hospital campuses: First Hill, Cherry Hill, Ballard, Edmonds and Issaquah. We also have ambulatory care centers in Redmond and Mill Creek, and a network of more than 100 primary care and specialty clinics throughout the greater Puget Sound area.

Swedish’s innovative care has made it a regional referral center for leading-edge procedures such as robotic-assisted surgery and personalized treatment in cardiovascular care, cancer care, neuroscience, orthopedics, high-risk obstetrics, pediatric specialties, organ transplantation and clinical research.

Swedish is affiliated with Providence St. Joseph Health, a Catholic, not-for-profit organization founded by the Sisters of Providence in 1856. With more than 76,000 employees, Providence operates 34 hospitals and 475 physician clinics across five states. Based in Renton, Washington, Providence also provides strategic and management services to integrated health-care systems in Alaska, California, Montana, New Mexico, Oregon, Texas and Washington.

Extraordinary Care, Extraordinary Caring

Since 1910, Swedish has been a partner for health in the community. We’ve resolved to improve the health of the region beyond normal patient care. This translates to our commitment to charity care, research, community health and education. We see this service as our responsibility to our community and we take it seriously.

Today that responsibility to community also includes additional access to information. The healthcare industry is undergoing substantial changes. We believe as the community’s leading healthcare provider, it is our responsibility to also provide information and leadership on these changes.
