Overlake Hospital Foundation Programs
Leading Cardiac Care
Overlake has offered the most comprehensive, advanced and innovative heart and vascular care on the Eastside for 20 years. The region’s leader in adopting new technologies and procedures, we are building a state-of-the-art facility that will be the central hub for our world-class diagnostic and therapeutic services. The Center will enable us to provide highly integrated care and remain at the forefront of the technological curve. The $17.4 million Heart & Vascular Center will open in Spring 2014.
Comprehensive Cancer Care
Overlake provides unparalleled cancer services for the Eastside community. While our expert staff and leading technologies are second-to-none, we are distinguished by our compassion and respect for our patients and families. Overlake is integrating and expanding our cancer outpatient services to offer a fully coordinated line of clinical and complementary cancer care tailored to the unique needs of each patient and family.
Life-Saving Care For Newborns
Overlake’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit cares for the most tiny and fragile members of the community — babies born prematurely (as early as 26 weeks gestation) or with life-threatening health conditions. We recently elevated our ability to care for the growing number of preemies by building a state-of-the-art facility. The NICU operates in partnership with Seattle Children’s to ensure newborns get the most expert care available.
Recent Successes and Current Challenges
Overlake was recently named one of the nation’s Top Performers on Key Quality Measures by the nationally-recognized Joint Commission. Overlake was the only hospital recognized in the greater Seattle area and one of only six in Washington. We received HealthGrades Patient Safety Excellence Award for the fifth consecutive year, ranking us among the top 5 percent of U.S. hospitals for patient safety.
Overlake is a nonprofit, independent hospital that provides essential community services. We receive no tax dollars, relying instead on philanthropic support to help maintain and advance leading-edge healthcare for the Eastside region. Donations help our patients and families manage their health with the latest technologies and medical advances, a superb medical staff and exceptional quality, compassionate care.
Every dollar you invest will be used wisely and efficiently, whether it's for the hospital’s greatest need or to support a specific area of care, such as cancer services, our cardiac and vascular program, palliative care or services for seniors. Our generous charity care program makes Overlake an important community safety net organization. Contributions to charity care help us relieve the burden of healthcare bills on thousands of low income, uninsured or underinsured people by providing free or discounted medical services. Supporting the “Ensuring Excellence Fund” allows us the greatest flexibility to put your gift to work where it’s needed most.
