Dear Friends, On behalf of everyone who works at Swedish, welcome to the 29th annual Celebrate Swedish. Tonight will be a very special evening for me, because this is my first Celebrate Swedish. Since becoming Swedish’s Chief Executive last November, I have been gratified to discover, over and over again, how much this great institution means to our supporters, and I look forward to meeting as many of you as possible tonight. One of the most exciting things about my new job has been getting to know so many extraordinary Swedish caregivers. The key to any successful health care system is great doctors, nurses and staff. We are very fortunate to have thousands of skilled and dedicated people who work tirelessly to provide the high quality care that Swedish stands for. In a very real sense, it is these men and women we are celebrating tonight, and I know you join me in thanking them and in honoring their work. With the serious financial challenges that confront our national health care system, Swedish has come to depend more than ever on the continued support of our generous donors. You have shown, year in and year out, that you understand what it takes for a nonprofit institution like ours to remain a strong resource for the community and region. As in the past, the money raised at tonight’s auctions will be used to support care at Swedish for patients who are unable to pay for it themselves. I can’t stress too strongly what a difference these funds make in people’s lives, and I urge you to bid generously on the wonderful auction items in this catalog to help us address this need. Our 2014 Fund-A-Need focus is the Robert and Jean Reid Family Innovative Therapeutics and Research Center at Swedish Cancer Institute, which will be built on the 4th floor of the Arnold Pavilion. This groundbreaking facility will enable Swedish to provide “personalized medicine” to cancer patients through state-of-the-art genomic and molecular approaches to identifying targeted therapies for treating each patient’s unique cancer. You will hear a lot tonight about this exciting and very promising approach to cancer treatment, and I hope you will help us make Swedish a national leader in this important area. The Event Chair for Celebrate Swedish 2014 is Molly Otter and our Honorary Chairs are Lucius & Phoebe Andrew. These active and loyal Swedish supporters, along with many hundreds of other volunteers, have been planning and preparing for tonight for months. We are extremely grateful to them for the gift of their time and energy. I also want to thank Wells Fargo Bank, our Presenting Sponsor for the 17th consecutive year! They and our many other generous and public-spirited corporate sponsors— you can see their names in this catalog—are a key factor in Swedish’s success and in the success of this event. I hope each of you has a wonderful time tonight at Celebrate Swedish 2014. Your support for Swedish sustains us and makes us very proud. Tony Armada, Chief Executive 3

By pledging $10,000 or more to the Fund-ANeed project tonight, you will become part of the legacy of Dr. Nils Johanson, Swedish’s founder, whose mission was to ensure that the latest advances in medical technology and quality patient care are here for all of us. Founders Circle members receive all the benefits of Summit Club membership (see below) plus access for immediate family members to the Bentley Family Donor Lounges. These lounges, at the First Hill and Cherry Hill campuses, and the Robin Erzinger Knepper Family Donor Lounge at Swedish/Issaquah are designed to provide a private, quiet and intimate area for families to relax while visiting the hospital. They are open 24-hours a day, seven days a week. Founders Circle donors support Swedish’s most important priorities, making Swedish the best place to receive care.

Become part of the Summit Club by giving $1,500 or more to Fund-A-Need. Club members receive many benefits, including: • Admittance to a private hospital room, when available and medically feasible, and discounted parking at the 747 Broadway garage at First Hill • Complimentary valet parking, when available, at the First Hill and Cherry Hill main entrances • Complimentary passes to the Educational Forum, a series of educational lectures • Invitation to our annual recognition reception • Recognition in Swedish Medical Center’s Annual Report


Fund-A-Need Swedish Cancer Institute (SCI) has recently committed to extending its approach to treating cancer by adopting a heightened focus on patients’ genetic makeup and the molecular characteristics of their tumors. This approach to cancer care is often called “personalized medicine.” It is widely believed that, in the next decade, this approach will transform cancer prevention, detection, diagnosis and treatment.

The Wall of Hope located on the 5th floor of the Arnold Pavilion.

In 2015, SCI will continue its long tradition of early adoption of innovative and promising cancer treatments by establishing the Robert and Jean Reid Family Innovative Therapeutics and Research Unit (Reid ITU) at Swedish Cancer Institute. This new 12,000 square foot facility will occupy the entire fourth floor of the Arnold Pavilion and will contain dedicated spaces and resources that will lay the founda-tion for a broad program of personalized medicine and personalized medicine research at Swedish.


There are many naming opportunities to recognize gifts in support of the Reid ITU. Here are just a few of the recognition opportunities: $25,000: Name a semi-private treatment space in the Reid ITU The 16 semi-private spaces in the Reid ITU are specifically designed for patients on personalized therapies or clinical trials. They feature expanded isolation capability as well as specialized monitoring equipment that will allow the safe administration of cutting-edge and experimental treatments.
