Swedish executives met with the City Council Land & Shore Committee on April 9 to discuss potential future expansion of their current Issaquah Highlands site.
Specifically, they asked to directly manage their own titled site from the city instead of going through developer Port Blakely, and for an extension on their development agreement, from 2013 to 2017. The extension would give hospital leaders time to decide how to expand and when.
A year after opening, the hospital has met with a greater amount of success than anticipated and the group that met with city leaders wanted to discuss possible avenues to capitalize on that performance.
