Bobby, Pharmacy Tech

After working in retail pharmacy settings, Bobby transitioned into the hospital setting and hasn’t looked back. He feels that Swedish is a place where anything is possible. "One of the great things about my role here at Swedish is I actually don't need a college degree, I have been able to move up and to do things, with just knowing the things I know," says Bobby. "People here are very open to new ideas. If it is more efficient and better for the patients, then there's nothing that they're not willing to try."

Coming to Swedish was one of the best decisions I've made. Everything I get to do here is very unique, fun, and fulfilling. And it’s helping pave the way for the future, which is something incredible.

What sets Swedish apart from other places you’ve worked?

All the different campuses in the region collaborate and work together towards a mutual goal of patient care, which is so different from almost every other facility I’ve worked at, where even though we were part of a larger organization, we all operated independent of one another.

What is Swedish like on a day-to-day basis?

Even though it is a job, and we are all here to serve the patients, we also have fun doing it. It's not all serious all the time. We try to have as much fun as we can, while trying to get as much work as we can. It’s a nice balance, which makes it so rewarding.

Is Swedish an inclusive workplace?

I have been a member of the LGBTQ committee for Swedish almost since its inception. I've been at organizations where I've had to hide myself and I don't have to here -- I'm accepted fully for who I am. It's what you bring to the table, not who you are, that really matters.
