Swedish Founder Dr. Nils Johanson
In 1908, Swedish immigrant Dr. Nils Johanson
moves to Seattle and sets up a surgery practice.
He becomes determined to build a hospital to meet
his high standards in sterile surgical conditions after
discovering Seattle hospitals lack in this regard.
Dr. Johanson recruits a group of fellow Swedes to
help realize his dream of providing Seattle with a
first-class nonprofit hospital; they set out to raise
$10,000 to found Swedish.
Swedish Hospital
Opens June 1, 1910
A lease is signed on a two-story apartment
house at 1733 Belmont Ave. in Seattle as the
location for the first Swedish Hospital and the
24-bed facility begins accepting patients.
Realizing that a skilled nursing staff is critical to
quality health care, Dr. Johanson establishes
the Swedish School of Nursing.
In 1913, the first class of five young women
graduates from the Swedish School of Nursing.
1912: Swedish Purchases
New Hospital
The new facility, located at Summit and
Columbia, will become the cornerstone
of Swedish Medical Center/First Hill.
Swedish Keeps Growing
In 1926, a seven-story addition increases
capacity to 200 beds, including a nursery
with 65 bassinets, and is furnished with
modern hospital equipment.
During the Great Depression, Swedish
perseveres in its commitment to serve
the community. The Tumor Institute opens
in 1932 as the first dedicated tumor
treatment center — and the first to provide
high-energy radiation therapy —
west of the Mississippi.

And Growing …
By 1975, with the addition of professional
office buildings and the area's first
independent day-surgery program, Swedish
grows to become a major medical center. In
1980, Doctors Hospital and Seattle General
Hospital close, merging with Swedish.
Ballard Community Hospital becomes a
valuable part of the Swedish system in
1992. Now known as Swedish Medical
Center/Ballard, it continues to play a vital
role in the North Seattle community.
