Steve Deem, M.D.
I am originally from Illinois, and graduated from Southern Illinois University School of Medicine in 1984. I subsequently completed residencies in internal medicine and anesthesiology, followed by a critical care medicine fellowship. I developed an interest in Neurocritical Care and was the Medical Director of Neurocritical Care at Harborview Medical Center from 2002 until March of 2013, when I moved to Swedish Medical Center. I am currently the Medical Director of the Neurocritical Care Unit at Swedish, and split my time between the ICUs and ORs. My focus is on continuous quality improvement and the implementation of evidence-based practice in the ICU.
