Multiple Sclerosis Center

Patient and therapist

With more than 400,000 Americans living with multiple sclerosis (MS) – and a large percentage of them right here in the Pacific Northwest – Swedish is responding to the needs of our community by creating a truly comprehensive MS center.

In April 2012, Swedish opened a new, state-of-the-art MS Center at the Swedish/Cherry Hill Campus. At 11,700 square feet, the new MS Center at Swedish is one of the largest in the country. The Center was specially designed to meet the unique needs of MS patients. In addition to expanded space for exam rooms and provider offices, the new Center includes a gym filled with specialized equipment, as well as an outdoor therapy terrace, a wellness center, a community gathering space, and an on-site research office.

Community support has played a substantial role in opening the new MS Center, and philanthropy continues to be essential in making our vision for creating a comprehensive MS Center a reality. Gifts received in support of the new Center will help provide comprehensive wellness and education services, social work, rehabilitation therapy, psychology and research programs at the Center to help people live more fully with MS.

Just as it takes a community of care providers to help MS patients live full lives, it also takes a community of donors to help Swedish set the benchmark in MS care. Your support is needed. Please make a gift today to help the thousands of people living with MS in the Puget Sound region.

Swedish would like to extend a special thanks to the donors who have made leadership gifts in support of the new MS Center at Swedish. – Richard and Betty Hedreen – Jim and Gaye Pigott – Wenie Din and James Bowen, M.D. – Beau and Julie Gould – The O’Donnell Foundation – National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Greater Northwest Chapter – The Bernbaum Family – Michael and Elizabeth Hilton – Chuck and Karen Lytle – Joy and Chai Mann – Rosanne Esposito Ross and Louis Ross
