The 80-bed facility provides a wide range of inpatient and outpatient specialty care, including oncology, cardiology, obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics, emergency, intensive care and a host of specialized surgical services. The Swedish Issaquah emergency department received the prestigious Summit Award by Press Ganey Associates for maintaining patient satisfaction scores in the 95th percentile or above for at least three years.

Where You'll Live

Issaquah, population 30,000, is a scenic suburb of Seattle, east of the city on the south end of Lake Sammamish. With the Tiger, Squak and Cougar mountains surrounding it and state parks just minutes away, Issaquah feels farther from the urban center than it really is. Its historic shops, such as the famous Boehm's Candies, attract visitors from around the world, while Duthie Hill Park's 120 acres of evergreen forest are a popular hiking and mountain-biking destination.

Who You'll Work For

Swedish is a comprehensive health network with a long history of excellence. The Seattle-based system operates five hospitals with more than 1,500 beds, and more than 115 primary and specialty care clinics. Part of the Providence family, Swedish is world-renowned for its innovative and ground-breaking diagnoses, treatments and medical research at its five award-winning institutes: cancer, digestive health, heart and vascular, neuroscience and orthopedic. Its mission is to improve the health and well-being of each person it serves.
