So, underwent a scheduled surgery at Swedish Medical Center last Thursday. It was a successful surgery. Very efficient. Did not have to endure a pre-op waiting period. Met everyone who would be involved in my care before surgery. Excellent pain management afterward. Private recovery room. Fantastic post-op nurse. Decent food at the cafe – try the chocolate cake!

Hopefully the last surgery of my life. Good experience overall.

My fiancée was driven by her friend to this hospital with a fractured hand and bruises. The "know it all" idiots who run the show asked her to behave and stop crying. They proceeded to treat her as a drug addict, and she was kept waiting in the ER room for nearly three hours. This aggravated her migraines, and she ended up vomiting. So she sat there, waiting for the treatment of migraines as well as bruises and fracture. These doctors do not know how to differentiate between real emergency and a fake one. Only after an x-ray showed clean break did it strike the idiots that they were actually looking at a real emergency. WOW!!! Thought I had seen it all!!!!

A very positive hospital experience. My wife had visited Swedish Medical Center for robotic surgery. Thankfully for us, the surgery went off very well. The hospital ensured that I was kept in the loop. Her nurse when she was on the fifth floor was absolutely terrific! She was efficient, pleasant, and very helpful. We could not ask for anything more! The only problem was the uncomfortable chairs

We had our first child at Swedish Medical Center. Can say the best hospital hands down. Every interaction that we had was positive. The medical team explained everything and helped us in clearing all the confusion. They helped in teaching my wife a lot of things that involved postnatal care. The food at Swedish Medical Center was surprisingly good. It is so good that I would not hesitate to visit the hospital to eat their delicious food. Definitely recommend visiting Swedish Medical Center for deliveries!
