Your 2017 annual report

You are changing lives

You are part of a long tradition at Swedish—improving the health and well-being of our community with your philanthropic support. For more than a century, caring people like you have given the gift of wellness to our community. Day after day, you bring extraordinary, often life-changing care to so many patients across our region.

Your Impact

It was hard for Karen Bienz to watch Steven deteriorate from an aggressive form of melanoma that eventually took his life at the age of 25. Steven’s cancer story began when his dermatologist removed a “weird-looking” mole from his collarbone. When the pathology report showed it was melanoma, the dermatologist referred Steven to a surgeon to have several lymph nodes removed to check for cancer cells. All of the nodes were cancer free, so Steven went on with his life.

By the Numbers

The following accomplishments are just a few examples of the patient care, research and education programs at Swedish that are possible thanks to your philanthropic support. For example, our expanded Pediatric Therapy facility now helps more children with disabilities develop the skills they need to lead active and independent lives. Thank you for making this kind of extraordinary health care possible at Swedish.
