Why Volunteer at Overlake?

Volunteering at Overlake offers a unique opportunity that is rarely found in other healthcare facilities. Volunteers can provide support in a variety of settings. They are often the first and last contact for our patients. Volunteers are at the front door, discharge lobby, patient bedside from emergency services to surgery recovery, and in every medical unit in the hospital.

We offer generous benefits for our volunteers.

Volunteer Testimonials

“Overlake Volunteers have time to make a difference”

“I am a busy stay-at-home mom, and look forward to my afternoons shift volunteering in the hospital.”

“As an airline flight attendant, I need an outlet when I am on the ground. I volunteer on-call for the transport team and love every minute of it.”

“I was new to the Puget Sound region, looking for work and needed to network, I started volunteering 10 years ago and have continued even after I got a job, it is so rewarding.”

“I could not get into nursing school even though I had a 4.0 GPA because I had never been in the hospital setting, so I started volunteering on the Medical Surgical floor and I have been accepted to Seattle University and chosen a area of interest because of my experience at Overlake.”
