Swedish Medical Center Spring 2012 Volume 3, Issue 1
If you visit a Swedish campus or clinic today, you won’t notice anything materially different about the experience. You’ll still get the same expert care, advanced resources, professionalism and personal attention you’ve come to expect from Swedish. But behind the scenes, a profound change is taking place that will transform the way we deliver health care. We’re working hard to provide a local solution to the nation’s health-care crisis. As the new chief executive of Swedish, I want to take a moment to introduce myself and offer a preview of the dramatic transformation occurring in our organization. Our affiliation with Providence Health & Services became effective on February 1, and we have already begun working together to rapidly improve health-care quality, access and affordability in Western Washington. As part of the restructuring, our previous CEO, Rod Hochman, M.D., has taken on a new role at Providence. He is now a group president, overseeing key functions across Providence’s five-state network, including clinical quality and physician services. Rod will also have accountability over Providence’s Oregon and Washington operations and will remain closely involved in activities at Swedish. I am honored to have the Swedish leadership baton passed on to me and look forward to picking up where Rod left off. To share some of my background, I have 25 years of experience in health-care administration and have worked in every type of health-care delivery model, including a multi-state network, rural health care and a for-profit HMO. The most rewarding experience, however, has been spending the last 12 years of my career at Swedish. I joined the organization in 2000 and have worked in a variety of capacities, including serving as vice president of Swedish’s medical group, chief strategy officer, and chief administrative officer for Swedish’s Ballard, Issaquah, Mill Creek and Redmond campuses. Over the last five years, Swedish has taken a number of steps to better serve our growing region. Through our new locations on the Eastside and Northend, we have worked to create a regional delivery network that allows us to provide as much care as possible in local communities, while offering the back-up of our highly sub-specialized resources in downtown Seattle. Our focus now is to make sure all our locations are extremely well-managed and continue to provide the highest quality care to our patients. Through our partnership with Providence, we have extended that network from Centralia to Seattle to Everett, and we’ll be able to share resources and expertise to increase access to services in local communities throughout our region, while improving the level of clinical quality and driving down the cost of health care. Given the economy and the challenges facing health care, engaging the community in our nonprofit mission is vital to our success. In 2011, Swedish received over $19.8 million in gifts from the community, bringing the total raised to over $92 million in support of the $100 million Campaign for Swedish. It takes a village to ensure our region has access to high-quality, affordable health care, and we can’t thank you enough for your generous philanthropic support. On behalf of the Swedish Senior Leadership Team, the Swedish Community Board and our Foundation Board of Governors, thank you for your commitment to Swedish. We couldn’t do it without you. Warmest regards,
Kevin Brown Chief Executive

Dan Dixon, vice president of External Affairs, addresses the crowd at the dental clinic opening reception.
Swedish introduces new specialty dental clinic Volunteer dentists and community supporters make new program possible.
ccess to specialty dental care for the uninsured and underinsured in our community took a significant step forward with the recent opening of the Swedish Community Specialty Clinic dental program, the first of its kind in the Puget Sound area. Oral health services have become less available to low-income individuals since the state funding of adult Medicaid dental programs was cut in January 2011. The cuts have also affected dental-care access for developmentally disabled and elderly populations. These reductions have led to an increase in hospital visits, as severe dental pain is among the top five reasons underserved patients utilize the emergency room. The innovative Swedish Community Specialty Clinic (SCSC) opened in September 2010 as part of Swedish’s more than 100 year commitment to providing excellent medical care to all in need, regardless of their ability to pay. The SCSC offers services including orthopedics, dermatology, cardiology, gynecology, neurology, occupational therapy, podiatry and many others. Adding a dental pro-
gram was a natural next step for the SCSC. In collaboration with Seattle Special Care Dentistry and Project Access Northwest, Swedish installed three new procedure areas, fully equipped for specialty-care services, within the SCSC. The dental clinic, which saw its first patient in September 2011, is designed as a referral-based service for patients who are at or below 200 percent of poverty level. Patients are referred by clinics within the Swedish system, and Project Access Northwest manages the individual cases. Swedish estimates some 30 volunteer dental professionals will see up to 450 patients in the first year of the clinic’s operation. As many as 60 volunteer dentists and oral surgeons will treat up to 1,000 patients in its second year. The initial focus of the clinic is difficult tooth extractions, with plans to include endodontic and periodontal services in the future. According to Dan Dixon, vice president of External Affairs, there are four goals to the program: To provide a collaborative, clinical environment that will enable participating dentists to identify and remove
badly decayed teeth before they become acutely infected and life threatening; to create a valuable resource for the local underserved population, where they can recieve high-quality specialty care; to inspire dental residents and fellow dental professionals to volunteer their services by providing an ideal atmosphere for their participation; and to reduce unnecessary and repeated visits to emergency rooms. i Swedish gratefully acknowledges support from the Washington Dental Service Foundation, Seattle King County Dental Foundation, Burkhart Dental Supply, Epic Systems Corporation, and the Pacific Hospital Preservation & Development Authority, whose gifts have supported Swedish Community Specialty Clinic, construction and outfitting of the dental procedure rooms, as well as daily clinic operations. Additionally, Swedish would like to thank individuals in our community who have made generous gifts to the SCSC and/or the dental program, including Dr. and Mrs. Rod and Nancy Hochman and Yvonne Belshaw.

MEET MR. AND MRS. COUCH
Seattle residents Sven and Bernadette Couch, a married couple in their 40s, have many things in common. Both are the third of five kids in their families, and they like to share a laugh over the Comedy Central channel. Both have a passion for the arts and regularly attend St. Andrewâ€™s Episcopal Church. They also both suffer from Multiple Sclerosis (MS). And the Swedish MS Center is there for them every step of the way.

FEATURE Sven and Bernadette (who goes by “Bernie”) each noticed the first symptom of MS — a chronic disease that affects an estimated 400,000 Americans — several years before they met, while engaging in a favorite activity: running.
Sven’s fine motor skills are observed during a recent office visit.
I M P A C T S P R I N G 2 012
For Sven, the initial sign came during his first year as a law student at Syracuse University. “While running with a friend one day, within the first mile, I started seeing double,” remembers the former University of Washington defensive tackle. “I was worried that the double vision could mean a serious brain tumor or neurological disorder.” He made an appointment with an optometrist, who referred him to a neurologist. That doctor administered an MRI brain scan. The next day, on October 5, 1989, Sven was diagnosed with MS. He was 25 years old and devastated. “My father was a physician, and I knew there wasn’t a cure for MS,” he says. “It was tough. People tried to understand, but it’s a very isolating situation.” Bernie’s first indication that she had MS was a feeling of weakness in her left leg while running around Green Lake. “All of a sudden, I was dragging my leg,” says Bernie, then 27 and employed at the Honey Bear Bakery. “At first, it just happened when I ran. I’d start out feeling pretty good, but before long, my left leg would get heavy.” In January 1995, Bernie’s primarycare physician referred her to a neurologist. The doctor gave her an MRI that, like Sven’s, showed she had MS. “When I got the news, my first thought was: ‘I’ll get my muscles strong and work on my stamina, my endurance,’” Bernie says. “I was hopeful I would get better.” Sven and Bernie have spent the years since their diagnoses adjusting to the wide range of symptoms that can come with MS, yet maintaining a positive attitude despite living with a chronic disease. They receive support every step of the way from a team of caregivers at Swedish’s MS Center, which is opening a new, consolidated facility at Cherry Hill in April 2012. The Center’s emphasis is on wellness and helping patients maintain the highest quality of life. The first few years were especially tough, say the Couches. Sven chose to finish law school — a nearimpossible feat, given his worsening symptoms. “The first two years, my symptoms were relatively mild [including double vision, oscillating eye movements and muscle spasms], but the third year was much worse,” he says. That year, walking became extremely difficult, though steroids offered some relief. The
stress of law school exacerbated his condition. “I was so tired, I could barely function,” he recalls. In addition to being troubled by her left leg, which caused difficulty walking, Bernie began struggling with her balance. On the advice of her boss at the bakery, she tried treating her MS with holistic approaches — including a dairy- and wheat- free diet and vitamins — in addition to taking a host of traditional drugs, with varying success. One day at the Honey Bear Bakery in 1996, fate intervened when Bernie and Sven met. Bernie remembers: “My boss said, ‘See that guy over there? That’s Sven, and he also has MS. You should meet him.’ I went to talk to him, and we became good friends.” The couple found they shared many mutual interests, such as a love of comedy shows. “We like to laugh,” says Bernie. “Comedy gives us a break.” Over time, friendship blossomed into love as the couple supported each other in coping with their disease. Bernie has encouraged Sven to use different tools that help him with his mobility, such as a walker and leg braces, both of which she uses — and Sven discovered that “they help a lot.” “When we met, we were both lost,” reflects Sven. “I used to love to ski and hike,” adds Bernie, “but now I can’t ski, I can’t hike. A lot of our friends moved on, because we couldn’t do the things we used to.” “The beauty of finding a partner like Bernie is that we share the same situation and understand what each other is going through,” says Sven. In 2008, the couple exchanged nuptials in a small ceremony at the Salish Lodge near Seattle, surrounded by close friends and family. The Couches have built a life together in which they support each other through the physical trials they face. Sven — a published author of many poems, who has also written his memoir about living with MS — spends his time writing, while Bernie is a skilled watercolor artist. “With MS, you have to go with the flow,” says Bernie. “We’re always looking for ways just to have fun.” Sven and Bernie regularly visit Swedish’s MS Center to monitor and treat their condition. The couple shares the same physician — the Center’s medical director, Jim Bowen, M.D. — and attend a support group together, in which they find comfort through connecting with fellow MS patients. They also benefit from the robust physical therapy program and exercise gym at the Center. While medications and other treatments offer some relief from their symptoms, both Couches still dream of the day researchers find a cure. “Since my diagnosis, I’ve asked the doctors the same question: ‘When is there going to be a cure?’,” says Sven. “Ten years ago, they weren’t
sure. Today, they are far more optimistic. A cure is getting closer, and that’s wonderful.”
About MS The Couches are among 2.5 million people worldwide with MS — an unpredictable disease of the central nervous system that essentially causes the body to attack itself. The disorder damages the myelin, or protective material, that surrounds the nerves, resulting in an interruption or disordering of the transmission of nerve impulses. This “short circuiting” causes symptoms that vary widely from person to person, but often include loss of vision, numbness or tingling, weakness, loss of muscle coordination, fatigue and cognitive impairment. Explains Dr. Bowen: “With MS, a person’s immune system attacks his or her own nervous system. When it attacks, it causes damage to a particular location and to multiple areas over time. MS has more symptoms than any other disease.” Just as symptoms vary, so does the frequency of attacks. While one patient might experience symptoms for a short period and then remain symptom-free for months or even years, another patient may have symptoms that steadily worsen over time. Researchers aren’t sure what causes MS. One theory is that a patient’s white-blood cells, which are meant to fight infection or disease, are misdirected to target and attack the body’s own cells. These attacks are thought to cause inflammation in the central nervous system, which damages the myelin and, ultimately, the nerves. Another theory is that MS develops in genetically susceptible people as a result of an environmental exposure in childhood, perhaps a childhood virus. Researchers do know that some people are more susceptible to MS than others. For example, the disease strikes women three times as often as men and is most common among people of Northern European descent. It’s not entirely clear why, but the Pacific Northwest has one of the highest rates of MS in the world — about 12,000 cases, including about 8,000 cases in Western Washington. This means about 1 out of every 125 people in our community either has the disease, or has a parent, child or sibling with the disease. Doctors think the elevated rate of MS in our area might be due to a combination of genetic predisposition and environmental factors. The disease’s prevalence
here makes having a comprehensive local center specializing in its treatment essential. One of the most disheartening things about MS is that it usually strikes people in their prime — typically between the ages of 20 and 50, with 30 being the average age of diagnosis. “The impact of this disease on society is significant because it hits people during what would otherwise be their peak earning years and at a time when many are involved in building their families,” says Dr. Bowen. The prognosis the newly diagnosed receive can be difficult to hear: Within 10 years of the first symptoms appearing, 50 percent of patients are unable to carry out work or household responsibilities. Within 15 to 20 years, 50 percent of patients are unable to walk unassisted. In addition to suffering from physical and cognitive symptoms, many patients also struggle with anxiety, depression and other emotional issues as a result of their MS. Just as the disorder affects nerves throughout their bodies, it also impacts virtually every aspect of their lives.
Bernadette looks on as Jim Bowen, M.D., medical director of the Swedish MS Center, tests Sven for changes in strength.
Setting the benchmark for MS care Swedish is already a national leader in treating patients with MS. As part of the medical center’s renowned Neuroscience Institute, which was established in 2004, the Swedish MS Center offers a multidisciplinary team of MS-specific caregivers, including neurologists; neuro-ophthalmologists; physiatrists; social workers; a psychologist; a speech therapist; and vocational, physical, occupational and cognitive-rehabilitation therapists. Because of the impact of MS in the Northwest and Swedish’s commitment to serve its community, plans were made for a new, $7.8 million Center, which would be one of the largest of its kind in the nation. Construction on the facility began in November 2011, thanks to a generous outpouring of contributions from the philanthropic community. w w w. s w e d i s h f o u n d a t i o n . o r g
FEATURE Staff and patients alike have been eagerly awaiting the new Center’s April 2012 opening. With the additional space and resources, the number of MS patients treated at Swedish is expected to triple, to 6,000. The new Center — spanning 11,700 squarefeet with complimentary valet service for easy access for those with limited mobility — consolidates many of the services currently offered,
“The Center’s focus on aspects other than medication, including rehabilitation and wellness, provides us with comfort and hope for a better future.” Sven Couch Swedish MS patient
including physical therapy, gym space and educational classes. Before, patients often had to visit multiple locations to fulfill all of their needs. “[At the old Center], many of the components we offered were dispersed throughout the campus, decreasing efficiency and patients’ awareness of what programs were available to help them,” says Dr. Bowen. “Having these com10

ponents combined under one roof makes it easier to care for patients as an integrated team.” At the new Center, patients have access to: – Nationally recognized MS specialists and providers for diagnostic and clinical care – Exercise and physical-fitness programs – Clinical research and clinical trials participation – Educational resources for patients and families – Psychological, emotional and social support services “Our team cares for and supports the entire person: the physical needs, emotional needs, vocational needs, financial needs, spiritual needs and social needs,” says Dr. Bowen. “The Center is a place to provide care, offer resources and foster community.” According to Dr. Bowen, when most people think of MS, they think of motor dysfunction. But it’s the progressive mental fatigue that often causes the most difficulty. “Cognitive impairment can cause families to be ripped apart, because the person isn’t the person he or she used to be,” says Dr. Bowen. “By far the best way to deal with this is to have the patient work with specialists. Someone with physical challenges needs to see a rehab specialist, someone with personal-relationship problems needs to see a psychologist, someone with work problems needs to see a vocational counselor, and so on.” One of several specialists patients have access to at Swedish is Angeli Mayadev, M.D., an MS-specific rehabilitation physician. “My work focuses on patients’ symptom management,” explains Dr. Mayadev. “With certain patients, we work with them from both a neurological perspective and a rehabilitative perspective. Common physical problems include mobility challenges, leg spasticity and weakness. These problems can be treated with [approaches including] oral medicines, injections and physical therapy. We have a team we work with, including myself, that makes a treatment plan specific to an MS patient’s needs to improve his or her quality of life.” The question the team focuses on answering for each patient, says Dr. Mayadev, is “What can I do to improve my ability to continue doing what I want to do?”
Wellness and research are a focus A highlight of the new Center is an expanded wellness program — one of several services MS patients won’t find elsewhere in the Northwest. “Our MS Center is unique in that it really emphasizes wellness — and by wellness, I mean people’s
ability to live life well, despite having a chronic illness,” says Dr. Bowen. “At Swedish, we believe overall wellness encompasses the physical, mental and social parts of a patient’s life.” The new Center includes a gym that is outfitted with exercise equipment specifically designed for people with MS, including recumbent equipment, power-assist devices, weight-suspended treadmills and electrically stimulated machines. Exercise instruction, including yoga and music-andmovement classes, and nutrition guidance further encourage healthy habits. Additional personalized wellness services include physical and rehabilitative therapy programs, smoking-cessation counseling and classes, and multiple support groups. An outdoor terrace offers not only a peaceful respite space, but a working therapy space with different terrain — including grass, gravel and concrete — allowing patients, protected by safety harnesses, to work on improving their gait. Another important component of the new Center is research. Swedish already has a robust MS research program — the largest in the Pacific Northwest — with researchers currently participating in 24 studies designed to improve the care of people living with MS, including studies investigating new treatments, new methods of diagnosis, better ways of monitoring the disease and new approaches to improve physical function. These efforts can now be expanded, due to the Center’s increased infrastructure dedicated to research, as well as the greater number of patients it will treat. “Research will be fully integrated into the new Center,” says Dr. Bowen, noting that more studies mean more patients will have early access to clinical trials for new, potentially beneficial therapies. Future plans for Swedish’s MS Center include the introduction of a telemedicine program for patients without access to Cherry Hill, and the eventual addition of new staff members, such as additional MS neurologists, a neuro-psychiatrist, an educational specialist and a recreational therapist. According to Dr. Bowen, Swedish currently has three neurologists dedicated to MS, but the new Center might eventually have as many as 10.
A team effort For the Couches, the new MS Center promises to continue offering them what Sven describes as “a balanced approach to our wellness.” He says, “The Center’s focus on aspects other than medication, including rehabilitation and wellness, provides us with comfort and hope for a better future.” The team of caregivers the couple works with at Swedish, adds Bernie, “has become like family.” This sentiment isn’t surprising, given the passion Swedish’s MS team brings to their work. “All of us work hard every day because we want to help
people struggling with this debilitating disease,” says Dr. Mayadev. “We want them to feel supported by us.” “The Couches are a really wonderful couple,” says Dr. Bowen. “I’ve been struck over the years by how well they have done, despite their physical limitations. They’re very supportive of each other.” He continues, “MS is a disease that lasts a lifetime, until research advances to a point that changes this. As a result, we’ve built a Center that is not just a place to see your doctor, but a place where the doctor is only a small part of a patient’s visit. A true MS Center must be a place that addresses every aspect of living with MS.” i Writer Jennifer Schaefer can be reached at email@example.com.

Make an impact The benchmark for excellence in MS care To date, many people from our community have already joined together to support the MS Center at Swedish, raising over $2.1 million for construction and outfitting of the space. Now that we have our new “home”, we need your help to raise the remaining $2.9 million to ensure that our wellness programs and research projects continue to be among the best in the world.
Wellness At Swedish, we want to support the physical, mental, and social well-being of all our MS patients. The MS Center exercise facility will have specialized equipment to help patients maintain their best physical function with MS. This includes recumbent equipment, power-assisted devices, weight-suspended treadmills and electrically stimulated exercise machines. Mental and social wellness are also critical to overall health for people with MS. Several personnel roles in the Center will support patients in maintaining full lives with MS, such as a recreational therapist, a vocational rehabilitation counselor and social workers.
Research Research is fundamental to providing world-class care for patients with MS. Clinical trials offer patients early access to new and potentially beneficial therapies. These studies help us find new methods of diagnosis, better ways of monitoring the disease and improving physical function, and new treatments for MS. The research support infrastructure in the Center will be expanded, including the extensive MS patient registry, making Swedish an even more prominent leader of MS research. A gift in support of outstanding MS care will help ensure the optimal wellbeing of patients and families affected by this disease. For more information or to support the Center, please contact Kate Purcell, director, major gifts, at (206) 386-3194 or firstname.lastname@example.org, or click here to visit the Swedish MS web site and learn more about the new center and how your gift can help.

Achieving financial and charitable goals with a gift annuity One-time employee and devoted volunteer makes gift to support health-care excellence at Swedish.
Swedish Legacy Partner Della Ramsden chose to support her hospital through a charitable gift annuity.
ella Ramsden, a longtime Seattle resident, recently celebrated her milestone 90th birthday. While Della has been fortunate to enjoy good health and has rarely visited the hospital as a patient, she does have a long relationship with Swedish. You see, it was Swedish that brought Della to the Pacific Northwest from her birthplace of Minnesota in July 1947. When Della was attending the University of Minnesota, she saw an advertisement that Swedish Hospital in Seattle was recruiting for medical positions. Eager for a change of pace and new experiences, Della and three of her girlfriends decided to pack up and drive cross country together in search of a new life. She began her new chapter as a medical technologist in the pathology department of Swedish Hospital, then located on Summit Avenue. While she only remained for a few years, the hospital kept a special place in her heart. Time passed, and when she officially retired from a long career as medical technologist in 1989, Della began volunteering at the First Hill campus. Over the next 21 years she worked in various positions, including patient escort and the information desk. In addition to her generous gift of time, Della also decided to support her hospital by establishing a charitable gift annuity, thus becoming a Swedish Legacy Partner. Della’s financial portfolio included EE bonds which were producing minimal income and that she wanted to sell. The charitable deduction she received from establishing the gift annuity offset the interest income she recognized. Further, not only was she able to receive a fixed income and security that she couldn’t from bonds or the stock market, but she could support the institution that helped change her life so many years ago. “I chose to give because I’ve always felt a part of Swedish over the years. It’s what brought me to Seattle.” We are grateful to have Della as part of the Swedish family. Her generosity will help sustain Swedish’s ability to provide world-class, compassionate care to patients in our community. i

from the FOUNDATION friend. She lived her life for her faith and family, and had a kind smile for everyone she met. No one truly saw the depth of her faith and courage until she fought her final fight.” Hope was purchased by the Paul family shortly after Cathy lost her battle with ovarian cancer. Looking for a meaningful way to celebrate Cathy and create a legacy to honor her, the Pauls named the filly after Cathy, adding “Hope” to the name. Recalling the emotions of the time, Darrin Paul says, “We never could have imagined the heartfelt parallels with Cathy and
Catherine Z’s Hope and her team: Ben Root, Hailie Paul, Hannah Paul, Tracie Paul, Darrin Paul, Frank Lucarelli (trainer), the groom, and Pedro Terrero (jockey). Catherine Z’s Hope: a win and a win for ovarian cancer research.
Hope racing towards the finish line
Meet Catherine Z’s Hope, a prize-winning thoroughbred whose earnings help support the Rivkin Center.
he early morning air is damp and the winter sun pierces the overnight mist. Standing next to the rail you feel and hear — rather than see — the racers as they come around the corner. We are at Emerald Downs to watch one of the most unusual donors to the Marsha Rivkin Center for Ovarian Cancer Research be put through her paces. Catherine Z’s Hope, known simply as Hope, is a beautiful dark bay, five-year-old thoroughbred filly with an impressive 2011 record: two wins and four second place
finishes from her first six starts. However, in 2009, before even entering training, the horse developed pleuropneumonia which resulted in a collapsed lung. Her prognosis for survival was not good, much less for racing. But her team and her owners, the Paul family, refused to give up on her. How could they, for Catherine Z’s Hope is named for a very special lady, Catherine Z. DeMatteis, who fought a courageous battle against ovarian cancer. Tracie Paul remembers her mother, “as a wife, mother, grandmother, daughter and
Hope’s unrelenting will to live. None of us thought she would ever race with all the lung damage she had, but sometimes the unexplained reinforces the faith to never give up.” After her triumph over her health issues, Hope ran her second race ever on June 19, 2010 and took third place. The Paul family has dedicated 10 percent of Hope’s gross earnings to the Marsha Rivkin Center for Ovarian Cancer Research. Through her courage and determination, Hope constantly reminds the family of Cathy’s wonderful spirit; her winnings ensure that the Rivkin Center can continue its important work. As Darrin Paul said in an interview with Washington Thoroughbred magazine, “Hope is the symbol for the Center and we feel blessed to have the opportunity to do this and maybe, just maybe, our filly Hope will provide a good story for racing and will benefit a great [cause].” i
Make an impact Since its inception in 1996, the Rivkin Center has been a principle catalyst for national and international research efforts aimed at finding solutions to ovarian cancer. In addition to funding research pilot studies and scholar grants to up-and-coming investigators, the Rivkin Center conducts early-detection screenings for ovarian cancer and produces an internationally-attended research symposium on ovarian cancer every other year.

I am proud to report that in 2011, thanks to the generosity of the individuals, foundations and businesses listed on the pages that follow, Swedish Medical Center Foundation set new fundraising records for the fifth consecutive year for dollars raised, number of gifts received, number of donors, and number of first time donors. This amazing record of growth in philanthropic support for Swedish, including $19.8 million in contributions we received last year, is especially impressive because it occurred during a time of continuing economic challenges for our nation, region, community, and, I am sure, for many of you. Credit for this success goes to you, our generous donors, for the gifts you made, large and small, and for the thousands of hours of volunteer time you dedicated to our activities and events. On behalf of everyone at Swedish and at the Foundation, thank you for all that you do. Total giving for The Campaign for Swedish has reached $92 million and we are drawing steadily closer to our initial Campaign goal of $100 million. We expect to reach that goal sometime this year and, by the time the Campaign is completed at the end of 2013, to have raised considerably more than that amount to fund critical programs and activities at Swedish which benefit our community. Some of the important things that are being done with the funds we have raised are described in this and previous issues of IMPACT. This list of additions and enhancements to Swedish is remarkable, but there is another major Campaign accomplishment that deserves mention in these pages because it is probably of equal importance: working together, slowly and steadily, we have nurtured a culture of philanthropy at and around Swedish. In 2012, the fact that Swedish is both a world-class medical center and a nonprofit health-care provider that must depend on philanthropy to remain a vibrant resource for the next generation is much more widely understood than it was a decade ago. In the current economic climate, with the challenges and uncertainties that face our nation’s health-care system, this understanding, I am certain, will be vitally important to Swedish’s future. Building this awareness has been a constant goal for those of us who work at the Foundation. Accomplishing this goal has involved the efforts of many others, including the physicians, nurses and staff who work at Swedish, the patients who come here for care, and, most of all, the loyal members of the community who help us to get the word out about why this great institution deserves the support of the community. Again, thank you for your generosity and your belief in Swedish. I hope that, with your continuing support, 2012 will be another record year for philanthropy at Swedish.
On the pages that follow, we gratefully acknowledge the thousands of individual and corporate donors who gave so generously to Swedish Medical Center in 2011. Thanks to each of you, we are able to continue the goal of making Swedish the leading health care delivery system in the region. Our heartfelt thanks to you, our partners.

Family members of Lisa Ryan Thompson served as Honorary Chairs of the 10th Anniversary Fisher Family & Friends Auction.
Fisher Family & Friends Auction: A record-breaking evening for the Rivkin Center On November 5, 2011, over 500 guests gathered at the Hyatt Regency Bellevue for an inspirational evening to benefit the Marsha Rivkin Center for Ovarian Cancer Research. The event was especially jubilant as it featured Lucia Neare’s Theatrical Wonders. The artists danced, sang, and interacted with guests throughout the evening, adding an extra touch of beauty, festivity and delight. Led by the family of Lisa Ryan Thompson, our Honorary Chairs, and our event committee headed by Gloria Bensussen, Kim Fisher, Scott Swerland and Joe White, this special 10th anniversary celebration raised more than $1.12 million, a recordbreaking evening for the Rivkin Center. Once again, guests were inspired and motivated by a very generous gift from the Wanda Jankelson Foundation for Health Care and Research, which pledged $500,000 to match money raised by the event. A special thank you to our 10th anniversary sponsor, SRi, and to our other top sponsors: BDA; BizXchange; William O. & K. Carole Ellison Foundation; Edward, Eric, Rodney and Craig Fisher; Lytle Enterprises; Lois and Benjamin Mayers; MCM; Seattle Sun Tan; and Sequoyah Electric, LLC. In addition to the moving tribute from the family of Lisa Ryan Thompson, guests were also priviledged to hear from our 2011 Courage for Life Honoree, Susun Hosford. A 10-year ovarian cancer survivor, Susun gave an inspirational speech about her personal journey and her involvement on the Board of the Rivkin Center. As a planned giving donor to the Rivkin Center, Susun was delighted to share her story and also her reasons for making the Rivkin Center part of her estate plans. Each year, the Fisher Family & Friends Auction and the SummeRun & Walk for Ovarian Cancer raise money that forms the cornerstrone of the Rivkin Center’s investments in ovarian cancer research. In just 10 years, the auction has raised more than $5 million, and the SummeRun more than $4.5 million over the course of 17 years. We are grateful to the many thousands of donors who have participated in these events. We hope you will join us for our next auction as we celebrate on November 9, 2012 at the Hyatt Bellevue. The SummeRun will be held July 22, 2012. For more information visit www.rivkin.org or call (206) 215-6200. 20

Honor / Memorial Tributes
Wendy Nelson Popke (far left) and Erik Nelson, owners of Lynnwood Honda, recently presented a check for $7,500 to the Childbirth Center at Swedish/Edmonds for their Car Seat program.
Swedish/Edmonds Car Seat program expands with help from Lynnwood Honda At Swedish/Edmonds, concern for an infant’s safety continues far beyond their first hospital stay. The Car Seat program, launched in 2007, typically awards 12 seats per year to parents who cannot afford a safe car seat for their new baby. In November 2011, the program received an extremely generous donation of over 100 new car seats from Lynnwood Honda. “All our babies have a car seat fitting before going home,” says Joyce Miller, Childbirth Center manager at Swedish/ Edmonds. “We sometimes see unsafe car seats with broken or missing parts, or it’s so old that it does not have the recommended five-point harness. Having to purchase another car seat that will keep their baby safe can be very challenging financially to some parents.” Since its inception, the Car Seat program has been supported exclusively through generous donations from the Lynnwood Kiwanis Club. Thanks to the additional support from Lynnwood Honda, the program is now able to help even more new families. “I think the Car Seat program at Swedish/Edmonds is a great idea, and I’m glad Lynnwood Honda can help make the program even more successful,” says Wendy Nelson Popke, co-owner of Lynnwood Honda. “We’re a locally-owned business and we’re always looking for ways to give back to our community. The car seats we are providing are the convertible type that adjust from 5 to 50 pounds, eliminating the need to purchase another seat after a baby is six months old.” “We are so grateful for the generosity of Lynnwood Honda supporting the smallest members of our community,” says David Jaffe, chief executive, Swedish/Edmonds. “What a great example of how local philanthropy can make such a difference to our neighbors in need.” w w w. s w e d i s h f o u n d a t i o n . o r g
