Facts & Figures


Swedish was founded more than a century ago by a physician and Swedish immigrant, Nils Johanson, M.D., with the generosity of members of our community who wanted to provide our region with the best medical care possible. What started as a 24-bed facility is now the largest not-for-profit health care provider in the greater Seattle area.

As Swedish Health Services has evolved and affiliated with Providence to become Providence Swedish, our vision to provide the highest-quality health care for the best value remains unchanged. In 2023, generous donors contributed over $33 million, driving advancements in behavioral health, cancer research, women’s health, NICU & pediatrics, nursing, health equity, and more – reinforcing our steadfast commitment to the ongoing well-being of our community.

Swedish Today

Swedish is comprised of five hospital campuses (First Hill, Cherry Hill, Ballard, Edmonds and Issaquah); ambulatory care centers in Redmond and Mill Creek; and Swedish Medical Group, a network of 202 primary and specialty care locations throughout the greater Puget Sound area.

Our commitment to improving the health of our region extends beyond patient care. Whether through physician clinics, health education, research and innovation or other means of outreach, we are committed to caring for the people in our region and beyond.

Accreditation and Quality Assurance

Swedish Medical Center is committed to providing the highest quality and safest care to our patients and their families and friends. We have an internal regulatory, quality, and safety program to validate compliance with standards and customer expectations, and to make necessary improvements where needed. Several regulatory agencies assist us in ensuring such quality and safety.

All Swedish campuses are fully accredited by Det Norske Veritas (DNV), an organization deemed by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to survey hospitals for compliance with federal regulations. In addition, certain specialty programs have also achieved certification from DNV, such as Stroke and the Ventricular Assist Program.

Swedish is a continuous learning organization, and in such, appreciates feedback from external agencies to help us be the best place to work and to provide care.
