Our Mission

The Violence Prevention Program (VPP) was developed to strengthen the hospital’s ability to identify and assist patients who are survivors of interpersonal violence.

Our mission is to: 

  • Identify patients and staff impacted by domestic violence, human trafficking and sexual assault
  • Respond with culturally competent and trauma-informed care, support and referrals through an extensive network of community-based partner organizations.
  • Prevent these forms of violence through education, training, awareness raising and advocacy

Swedish Medical Group provider profiles have patient ratings and comments to help you make informed decisions about the providers you choose.
