Swedish cares about the health and well-being of our patients, caregivers and community. In light of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) public health emergency, the risk for exposure is increasing for people who live in our state. Swedish is taking extra precautions to ensure the safety of our facilities and our ability to care for as many patients as possible. Safety is our top priority right now.
Swedish sponsors a variety of support groups that provide an opportunity to meet with others facing similar challenges. Swedish also hosts other support groups that meet at our facilities. Please contact your primary-care provider for help in locating a support group for your specific needs.
