Swenson Healthcare PLLC has announced the launch of a new post-acute care clinical services group in Tacoma.

Currently selecting and training clinical staff, the independent practice is partnering with skilled nursing and long-term care facilities throughout the Puget Sound region. The company’s motto, “Caring for Our Community,” emphasizes founder Darren Swenson’s conviction that “local and private clinical practice is the surest and safest way to provide the best quality patient care in a post-acute setting.”

“We aspire to elevate the patient’s experience and clinical outcomes in the facilities where we care for patients and provide medical director leadership,” said Swenson, who has over 21 years of experience as an internal medicine physician.

“Having a daily physician presence in our center helps our patients adjust to the transition from the hospital setting to a lower level of care,” added Stacy Mesaros, senior administrator for ManorCare Health Services in Tacoma. “Dr. Swenson and his team spend time at bedside and with our clinical team to ensure patients’, families’ and health plans’ goals are being met and the patient is able to transition to the community quickly and safely while reducing the likelihood of a return to the hospital.”
