Swedish Medical Center executives will break ground on a hospital campus in the Issaquah Highlands in late September.

Executives set Sept. 29 as a tentative date for a groundbreaking ceremony, hospital spokeswoman Natalie Kozimor said. Crews will begin working on the 18-acre hospital campus at about the same time, she added.

During the first phase of construction, crews will build a medical office building and an ambulatory care center. Phase 1 is planned to open in mid-2011. The hospital beds are part of the second phase. Executives plan to open Phase 2 in early 2012.

The planned hospital will be at the southwestern corner of Highlands Drive Northeast and Ninth Avenue Northeast, across the street from Proliance Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine center.

The completed hospital will provide inpatient and outpatient services, including oncology, cardiac care, obstetrics, pediatrics and neurosciences. The hospital will also provide emergency services and intensive care.
