A New Brand

Providence has recently announced a unified brand for its family of organizations in Western Washington. The new brand – Providence Swedish – coincides with the 10-year anniversary of the Providence and Swedish affiliation.

Since coming together in 2012, the two organizations have collaborated to deliver comprehensive care throughout the Puget Sound region, offering primary care, and specialty and subspecialty care in a number of clinical areas, including cancer care, cardiovascular health, neurosciences, orthopedics, digestive health and women’s and children’s care.

About Providence Swedish

Providence Swedish represents the largest, most comprehensive 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 not-for-profit family of organizations also provided more than $406 million in community benefit in the Puget Sound region last year as part of its commitment to serving those in need and improving the health of the region.

The new brand will apply to Providence Swedish hospitals in Lewis, Thurston, King and Snohomish Counties as well as to Providence Medical Group and Swedish Medical Group clinics across the Puget Sound region.

One Brand, Distinct Identities

As they have since 2012, Providence and Swedish will continue to honor one another’s distinct identities. 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 according to the original affiliation agreement. Providence and Swedish will also remain separate employers, and its foundations will continue to operate as separate 501(c)3s.

In addition to the rebrand, Providence Swedish continues to align operations to ensure world-class care is provided to local communities throughout the Puget Sound region while also offering seamless access to the system’s subspecialty services.
