An Overview of Important Policies

The Washington State Department of Health (DOH) requires that hospitals post select policies related to access to care to our website.

Swedish provides quality, compassionate health care to everyone that we serve. Based on our Mission to provide care to all and our core values of compassion, excellence, integrity, justice, dignity and safety, all patients and visitors who are receiving care, services or support from Swedish are treated with respect and equality. Each interaction will be free from discrimination based on age, race, color, creed, ethnicity, religion, national origin, marital status, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, disability, veteran or military status, or any other basis prohibited by federal, state or local law.
