A vision for Swedish

Read Dr. Hudson’s latest thoughts on health care


Welcome—and thanks for taking the time to visit this website.

I am honored and humbled to be the new CEO of Swedish. As a physician, there is no place I would rather practice medicine. And as CEO, there is no team I would rather lead. The caregivers and physicians at Swedish are the best I have ever worked with, and it is a thrill to be moving ahead into a new phase at Swedish together.

I will be sharing our goals and progress here, and some of my perspectives as a leader. I hope that you share our enthusiasm as we begin a new era of putting patients first. At Swedish, “putting patients first” means creating the best possible care experience and the best possible work environment for our team. We are proud of our 107-year history and inspired by our opportunities to continually improve everything we do.

I invite you to explore further here, and to follow my updates about our progress at Swedish.
