Swedish Accreditation & 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-Germanischer Lloyd (DNV-GL), 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-GL, 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.
