Eastside FC is proud to wear the Swedish logo on our jerseys. We feel there is a great fit between the mission and community values of both organizations. Last month, the new Swedish Hospital in the Issaquah Highlands opened. Here are a few facts to note about the new Swedish/Issaquah campus.

3. Swedish/Issaquah will be one of the most energy efficient facilities of its kind.
Patients and employees of Swedish/Issaquah enjoy the benefits of a vibrant medical campus grounded in sustainable, environmentally friendly values and practices. Swedish/Issaquah is the most energy-efficient medical complex in the region.
The planning team used computer simulation models to assist, among other things, in creating an efficient building envelope, setting insulation requirements for walls and ceilings, and selecting high-efficient heating/cooling equipment and lighting systems to maximize energy performance.
From the outset, Swedish also worked closely with regional electricity and gas utility Puget Sound Energy. The key goals are to integrate advanced technologies and processes that significantly reduce energy consumption, cut the facility's carbon footprint, and lower overall operating costs so Swedish can provide the most cost-effective care.
