Comments & Concerns

Swedish has a procedure in which patients are able to voice concerns without fear of jeopardizing their care. If you or your family member has complaints about medical care received, please feel free to speak with any manager or staff member in your unit or clinic. We strive to solve any unsatisfactory issues as quickly as possible during your service.
