A healthier tomorrow, thanks to you!

You are transforming health care in our community and for the world.

And your philanthropic investment—to the tune of nearly $40.5 million in 2018, a record year—makes innovative health care possible at Swedish.

From leading-edge cancer research to lifesaving transplant care to the teams who help thousands of babies take their first breath within our walls—we owe it all to you.

Take Bruce Erfer, for example, who stayed with us for eight nights after extensive surgery to remove a cancerous mass from his jaw that required facial reconstruction. He was inspired to donate to continue the kind of outstanding care he received.

Or there’s Jody Engle, a member of our Environmental Services team. She underwent treatment for her cancer just steps from where she works and blocks from where her husband passed away years earlier. She joined Swedish because she was touched by the compassionate care he received at our heart and vascular institute.

What you’ll find in all of these stories is hope. Hope for a cure. Hope that another family won’t suffer the pain of losing a loved one. Hope for a healthier tomorrow.

You are changing lives with your gift to Swedish. Thank you for your extraordinary caring.
