Seattle City Council Approves Swedish Cherry Hill Master Plan
May 17, 2016
From June Altaras, Swedish Seattle Chief Executive and System Chief Executive for Acute Care:
On behalf of Swedish, I’d like to express our gratitude to the City Council for their thoughtful review and approval of the new master plan for the Swedish Cherry Hill campus. I’d also like to express our appreciation to our neighbors, patients, caregivers and the Citizens Advisory Committee and City departments who have worked closely with us for the past four years. Together, I believe we created a plan that, through shared compromise, seeks to balance the needs of the hospital with the livability of the neighborhood.
The new master plan represents a 30-year vision for the future of the Swedish Cherry Hill campus that will allow Swedish to continue providing family medicine and emergency services to patients of all ages, while also treating the most complex cardiovascular and neurological diseases.
For more than 100 years Swedish Cherry Hill (formerly Providence Seattle Medical Center) has called Squire Park its home. We are committed to our responsibility as a neighbor and fellow steward of this great neighborhood. We look forward to working with the community to help realize the shared goals of a thriving neighborhood with world-class healthcare.
