The U.S. Attorney’s Office has launched an investigation of Swedish Health’s neurosurgery unit, officials said Wednesday.

The Seattle Times published an investigation of the Swedish Neuroscience Institute last month, exposing turmoil and a range of internal concerns about patient care.

The Times documented how some surgeons ran multiple operating rooms at the same time. And patient-safety indicators showed the Swedish-Cherry Hill campus, where the neuroscience institute is based, lagging behind peer hospitals on some measures.
