"We knew this going into the design process of Swedish/Issaquah," Brown said. "Every hospital should be concerned about its total energy use, supply reliability and price volatility, as well as the potential impact for greenhouse gas reduction policies on operations and profitability."

Swedish's response was to work closely with Puget Sound Energy, the regional electricity and gas utility, to set an energy usage goal equivalent of the power needed by more than 2,200 homes per year. Every major project element and internal system within the new medical campus was adjusted based on a specific energy-usage target. Patients, staff, physicians and visitors will all benefit from the energy efficiencies.

Swedish targeted a 10-year payback for its investment in energy efficiency and experts believe it will easily meet that.

Most patient rooms are the same size, so very little additional construction or retrofitting will be required in the future.

Retail Amenities Focus on Health-care Needs of Patients and their Families

Swedish/Issaquah offers a total of 16,000-square-feet of retail amenities that complement the medical center's services by offering options that are not available in a traditional retail shop. These include items focusing on the needs of pregnant women, new moms and babies, a large selection of post-operative breast surgery garments as well as private prosthesis and wig fittings by specialized staff. Swedish/Issaquah is also offering a unique drop-in child-care center for parents who prefer to not bring their children, ages six weeks to 12 years old, to their medical appointments.

The medical center is also changing the way people think about hospital food at its restaurant, Cafe 1910, named for the year Sw
