Serving as our Community’s Health Partner

Community Benefit Program 2020 Health for Good

View 2020 report

"At Swedish, we are committed to providing care to the millions of patients from across Puget Sound who enter our health care system each year. As the region’s largest not-for-profit health care provider, we take seriously our responsibility to deliver the care our community needs and to remain a steady community partner, especially amid unprecedented challenges.

The pressures of 2020 underscored the importance of cultivating strong relationships with local organizations and agencies that understand our community’s most urgent needs. Our commitment is reflected in the investments we make and the action we take every day to improve the health and well-being of each person we serve.

In 2020, Swedish invested $258 million in community benefit, including support to programs that address social determinants and improve access to care. 

I encourage you to learn more about how Swedish is working to meet the evolving needs of our patients, caregivers and community, and to read stories about the impact our investments have on those we serve.

We have faced challenges, but I am optimistic about the future because I have seen firsthand the incredible collaboration and creativity with which Swedish and our partners come together to address inequities in health care and help reduce barriers to care in our community."
