Nursing is one of the most demanding—and thoroughly rewarding—careers in healthcare. Thank you for exploring Overlake Medical Center as a place to practice nursing. As nursing professionals we are privileged to care for patients and their families during some of their most vulnerable life events. And although nursing is a very demanding career, it is also very satisfying.

At Overlake, we are fortunate to have a healthy work environment distinguished by a collaborative multidisciplinary team and approach to care. We believe exceptional patient care results from a collaborative effort between the patient, their family and the entire healthcare team with nurses, physicians and allied health professionals leading the way. We believe the effort of all team members should be directed toward assisting each patient achieve  their highest-level of functionality, health and wellness.

Nursing at Overlake is committed to providing competent, compassionate care in partnership with our patients and their family and loved ones. We support the members of our nursing staff to be the best they can be by providing a professionally rich environment. Members of our nursing staff are encouraged to share their expertise and experiences both informally among colleagues and formally by participating in Clinical Care Congress, our Shared Governance Model now entering its 25th year. The nursing staff at Overlake are exceptional professionals accountable for their practice, patients, colleagues and the organization. Our expectations are high and this is evidenced in our performance in clinical outcomes, service excellence and satisfaction.

I am very proud to serve as the Chief Nursing Officer and be part of the Overlake community where superior quality, compassionate care and service excellence go hand in hand. I hope that as I have, you will find your community here.
