Founded by the Sisters of Providence, the hospital that is now Swedish Medical Center/Providence Campus was Seattle’s first hospital when it was founded in 1877. In July 2000, Providence Seattle Medical Center, as it was then known, became part of the Swedish health-care system. With the addition of the Providence campus, Swedish gained s widely respected heart program, where the Northwest’s first open-heart surgery was performed, and the services of highly regarded musculoskeletal specialists.

The 436-bed tertiary-care center also operates the nationally recognized Advanced Bloodless Program, as well as an emergency room that records more than 24,000 patient visits annually, a voluntary inpatient psychiatric treatment for adults, a general surgery program and a program for patients experiencing a wide variety of neurological disorders.
