Swedish Cares: Our commitment to community
Swedish Medical Center has been a partner for health in the community since 1910. We value that partnership as a part of our identity and have since our beginning dedicated our mission to providing leading healthcare service. This translates to commitments to charity care, research, community health activities, education and Medicaid subsidies. We see this kind of service as a responsibility to our community and we take it seriously.
Today that responsibility to community also includes additional access to information. The healthcare industry is undergoing substantial changes. We believe as the community’s leading healthcare provider, it is our responsibility to also provide information and leadership on these changes.
This site provides a one-stop-resource for community members who want to learn more about healthcare in our region and changes in the industry. We have organized this information under three core pillars:
Innovation: Focus on activities related to healthcare innovation, research and development.
Community: Information on specific community outreach and support, along with educational components.
Influence: Access to emerging information on changing healthcare issues. Everything from news highlighting challenges healthcare faces from state budgets to issues surrounding healthcare reform.
We will regularly update this site and the News section with activities we are involved in, as well as articles of interest that provide insight into the changing healthcare landscape.
Come visit often, and sign up for our monthly e-newsletter to get an overview of the month’s activities and information updates. Of course, if you have any thoughts or feedback you’d like to share, please contact us.
