Why Choose Us for Your Cancer Care?

At Swedish, we know how important family celebrations and special occasions can be. Together let’s finish cancer so you don’t have to miss any of these moments.

We know that every patient is unique. No two patients – or their treatment plans – are alike. This is why we take a highly personalized approach to cancer care, and we always put our patients first. Our expert clinicians work with you to develop a specialized treatment plan that fits your and your family’s needs, because we know this results in the best outcomes. 

As our patient, you and your loved ones are supported by an entire care team throughout your treatment journey. Our board-certified medical oncologists use the most advanced techniques in your diagnosis and treatment. They work closely with an extensive team that includes nurse navigators, specialists and other caregivers who provide a range of support services – from prevention and education to nutrition, integrative medicine and counseling.

Cancer doesn’t discriminate, but access to great cancer care hasn’t always been the same for everyone. At Swedish, we are deeply committed to making sure every patient we treat has access to the best cancer care. We value, respect and support the racial, ethnic, religious, gender, sexual and spiritual identities of each member of our diverse communities, and we never turn a patient away. Instead, we work harder to make sure every patient is treated equally and with dignity – whoever you are, and wherever you're at.

Swedish cancer research provides options, and hope, for patients seeking advanced procedures and therapies. We’re proud of our long history of pioneering clinical trials, research and evidence-based therapies. We established the first cancer-care center west of the Mississippi. We also have over 90 years of radiation research.

Swedish Cancer Institute physician investigators and research partners are at the leading edge of the clinical trials stage of the research process. Swedish is one of the leading clinical trial sites in the western United States and is actively involved in hundreds of ongoing clinical trials involving most types of cancer. SCI is often the only site in the Pacific Northwest – and sometimes the first in the world – to participate in many clinical trials.
