Swedish/Issaquah is offering massages and other freebies Thursday as a thank-you to patients.
The hospital is hosting the inaugural Patient Appreciation Day of any Swedish Medical Center campus. The event includes complimentary blood-pressure screenings, massages and heart-healthy food samples prepared on site by a crew from Coho Café.
Patient Appreciation Day is open to the public. The event is from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the lobby at Swedish/Issaquah, 751 N.E. Blakely Drive.
Participants can also receive recommendations from dietitians about how to maintain a heart-healthy diet. Patient Appreciation Day attendees with higher- or lower-than normal blood pressure can also learn more from a physician.
Swedish/Issaquah opened in July 2011 and started offering in-patient services in November 2011. The 120-bed hospital is licensed for up to 175 beds.
