From The Olympian:

Providence, Swedish health care systems unite under one brand

“Providence and Swedish Health Services have announced a unified brand for its family of organizations in Western Washington.”

“The not-for-profit Providence Swedish now represents the largest health care delivery system in Western Washington, with 22,000 caregivers, more than 2,200 providers, eight hospitals, 244 clinics, 97,000 annual hospital admissions and 1.2 million unique patients served, the news release says. It also provided more than $406 million in community care last year as part of its commitment to serving those in need.”

“Providence Swedish has served the Puget Sound region since the first Providence hospital opened in Seattle in 1877 and the first Swedish hospital opened in 1910. Providence operates the 390-bed St. Peter Hospital in Olympia.”

“However, Swedish will remain a secular organization, and Providence will remain a faith-based organization. That means Swedish locations will continue to provide certain services that may not be available at Providence locations, the news release says.”
