At the Friday night Redmond Mustang boys basketball game, a light-blue "Swedish/Redmond" banner hung on the gym wall, and a full-page color "Swedish Medical Center/Redmond" ad took the program inside cover. The tag-line: "Now there's an ER right in your neighborhood". Were you one of the many hundreds attending "Redmond Lights" last night? Swedish was sponsoring it and passing out hand-warmers.

Swedish Medical Center is in the later stages of building 175 bed hospital in Issaquah Highlands. Evergreen Hospital Medical Center is only "5 miles and 11 minutes" from the Redmond Skate Park. So, the "games are on" to attract patients to their respective ED/Primary Care departments, labs and hospitals. Overlake Medical Center Urgent Care on East Lake Sammamish Blvd is competing with 24/7 Urgent care services. All three facilites boast modern electronic medical records services for accuracy and "in-house" patient convenience.
To a lesser extent Swedish and Evergreen are competing for patients to the North. Evergreen (Public) Hospital Medical Center is opening their Woodinville Urgent Care Clinic, Spring of 2011 and Swedish Medical Center is opening an ED/primary care facility in Mill Creek, south of Everett. Swedish recently took over operations at Stevens Memorial (Public) Hospital.
