At Swedish, we put patients first.

Since our founding 107 years ago, we have led the way in providing high-quality, safe care for everyone in our community, regardless of their ability to pay. We value the trust we have earned as the community’s health system.
As a nonprofit healthcare provider, Swedish takes seriously our responsibility to provide access to the services, expertise and facilities needed by our communities.

Our commitment to improving the health of our region extends beyond normal patient care. Whether through physician clinics, health education, charity care, our mobile mammography program or other means of outreach, we're committed to caring for the people of our region and beyond.
We are a pioneer in healthcare service and actively involved in the dialogue on healthcare reform. We provide access to information for our community and for our industry about everything from economic challenges to how to handle changing care needs. We host symposiums on healthcare issues and connect thought leaders with evolving information.
Healthcare impacts everyone, and it is our responsibility to lead the healthcare discussion in our community. Learn more about that here.

Trust is the most important defining characteristic of the patient-doctor relationship. Swedish remains committed to putting our patients first -- and we will continue to do so.
