Your 2016 annual report

From the Foundation

For more than a century, Swedish has been driven by our mission to improve the health and well-being of our community. From the very beginning, caring partners like you have invested in moving our mission forward.

Donor Stories

For Paul Gray and Karen Bergsvik, each day was a gift. In late 2007, Paul received a promotion at PACCAR and qualified for an executive physical as part of his health benefits. A colonoscopy found a small point of inflammation, which was biopsied. Just before Christmas, Paul and Karen got the news. Paul had cancer in his appendix.


The following accomplishments are just a few examples of the patient care and research programs at Swedish that are possible thanks to the philanthropic support of donors like you. For example, the organ transplant team conducted its first eight-way, four-state kidney chain, matching four willing but incompatible donors with recipients in urgent need of a kidney. Your support makes this kind of extraordinary care possible at Swedish, thank you.


In 2016, you donated more than $22 million for extraordinary care at Swedish, giving our patients hope for a healthy future. Thank you!
