The Eastside community has a new, full-service hospital with the complete opening of the 550,000 square-foot campus at Swedish/Issaquah on Tuesday, Nov. 1. The final phase of construction is complete, and hospital staff and patients now have full access to this revolutionary new facility. From the five-story medical office building and the cancer center to the visitor-friendly environs of Cafe 1910 and the retail stores, the public will encounter an entirely new hospital experience.
There is no better way to celebrate opening a new hospital than by welcoming a new baby into the world. The newest and youngest patient of Swedish/Issaquah, 8-pound, 20-inch-long Liliana Yozelin, was born at 7:23 a.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 2, one day after Swedish/Issaquah officially opened its doors for inpatients. Liliana is the second child born to Zulma Gutierrez-Tiznado and Francisco Javier Rodriguez of Issaquah.
