About the Cherry Hill Campus

What is now known as the James Tower at Swedish/Cherry Hill Campus was home to the first hospital in Seattle, established in 1877 by the Sisters of Providence, a Catholic charity. On July 1, 2000, the 385-bed tertiary care center previously known as Providence Seattle Medical Center became part of the Swedish healthcare system.
