Giving in Memory
Memorial gifts are a meaningful way to honor a special person in your life and show your appreciation for Overlake’s outstanding care. Overlake Medical Center Foundation gratefully accepts donations made in memory of a loved one who has passed.
Your gift will help ensure future patients receive the same level of exceptional, compassionate care you and your loved one experienced. You may designate your gift to support a specific program or to the hospital’s greatest needs.
