As part of our current approved First Hill Master Plan, which was developed in 2005 in collaboration with the City and the community, Swedish is preparing for the much-needed replacement of aging facilities at our First Hill campus. The new facilities will help us continue providing the best environment for our patients, families and caregivers.
