Your 2018 gratitude report

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.

Your Impact

You might find it surprising, but Mary Dowell had never known anyone with cancer—not a loved one, a friend or a colleague. That is until Mary arrived home from work one afternoon to discover her husband, Joe, lying on the floor. He’d experienced a seizure. Scans at the local hospital revealed the shocking news: Joe had a mass on his brain.

By the Numbers

Swedish was founded more than a century ago with the generosity of our community who wanted to provide our region with the best medical care possible. Today, we are the largest not-for-profit health care provider in the greater Seattle area and our vision to provide you with the highest-quality health care remains unchanged. Your philanthropic support is critical to upholding our vision to ensure you have access to innovative health care that’s delivered with the greatest compassion and skill. Following is a snapshot of Swedish as of 2018. Thank you for investing in extraordinary health care for our community.
