Swedish Ballard emergency room closed until Friday – here’s where to go instead

Per a Swedish blog post: “The Swedish Ballard Emergency Department will be temporarily closed to patient care through 8 a.m. Friday, Jan. 31. We apologize we cannot offer these services throughout the SEIU 1199NW Labor Strike. Normal services will resume at 8 a.m. on Friday, Jan 31.

Our five other emergency departments (First Hill, Cherry Hill, Issaquah, Edmonds and Mill Creek) will remain open during the strike. Individuals with life-threatening and urgent medical needs should go to one of Swedish’s open emergency departments for care or another local/regional emergency center.”
