Two years ago, he founded Tacoma-based Swenson Healthcare, a major provider of post-acute medicine in the Pacific Northwest. Formerly, Dr. Swenson was the Division VP of Graduate Medical Education for a 340-bed hospital for HCA. From 2008 to 2014 Dr. Swenson was the Regional Director of Medical Affairs for IPC Healthcare, a national provider of acute and post-acute medicine.

Commenting on the newly assembled team, Dr. Swenson commented, "This team has come together to fulfill one mission: to empower physicians and advanced practitioners to deliver better quality and efficiency of patient care in post-acute facilities.
