Swedish Health Services delivered 9,014 babies across four hospitals — First Hill, Edmonds, Issaquah and Ballard — in 2013, a record for the hospital system and an increase of 3 percent over 2012. Swedish/Edmonds saw an increase of 1,163 babies delivered in 2013, up from 1,138 in 2012.
Every year, more babies are born at Swedish than any other health system in Western Washington. The record number is in large part due to increased capacity at Swedish, as the hospital system added locations in Issaquah and Swedish/Edmonds in recent years. Swedish/First Hill continues to deliver the majority of babies born at Swedish.
