Swedish Medical Center exceeded a $100 million fundraising goal by $3 million in donations, campaign organizers announced Oct. 26.
Overall, more than 50,000 people contributed to the fundraising effort through the Swedish Medical Center Foundation.
Some funds from the fundraising campaign have contributed to programs at Swedish/Issaquah. The campaign has supported more than 40 major initiatives.
The fundraising effort, called The Campaign for Swedish, is the largest fundraising effort ever undertaken by the nonprofit health system.
The foundation launched the seven-year campaign in January 2007, and exceeded the $100 million goal about 18 months early.
