Project FutureCare

An investment in our community.

Project FutureCare, Overlake Medical Center's six-year campus renewal project, has been an investment in the growing Eastside community; a commitment to providing exceptional quality and superior service to every patient and family member. From childbirth services to surgery to behavioral health, Overlake continues to set the standard for overall healthcare excellence.
The cornerstone of the project—a new, 240,000 square-foot tower—opened in February 2021 and offers larger, single-patient rooms that combine the space for family zones and state-of-the-art technology, enhancing the work of Overlake’s highly skilled medical providers. The new tower also has a concourse-style drop-off, which reconfigures the campus for improved wayfinding and patient experience.

In November 2021, our inpatient mental health unit moved to a newly upgraded space. The new unit provides a warm and welcoming environment for patients and features 14 inpatient adult beds, private spaces for patient and provider discussions, larger common areas for group activities, as well as room for future expansion. The new space makes the best use of natural light, which research has shown plays an important role in mental healthcare.

Project FutureCare involves three construction phases, with the final phase completed in January 2023. Based on an urban-to-trail concept, the design incorporates natural light into interior spaces, park-like landscaping and pedestrian-friendly pathways that will welcome visitors from the Sound Transit Wilburton station, two blocks away.

The Project FutureCare design is based on visioning workshops by community groups, a patient-family advisory council, hospital leadership groups, cultural surveys, providers, staff, Bellevue City Council, first responders and neighbors. Just as Overlake was founded in 1960 by the community, generous local supporters will be critical to Project FutureCare’s success.

The project grows our campus and service offerings in several significant ways, including:

  • A new, five-story inpatient tower featuring a new childbirth center, which comprises labor and delivery, emergency obstetrics, mother and baby unit, and a level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
  • Increased bed capacity in medical surgery, oncology, telemetry and orthopedics.
  • Two new operating room (OR) suites—one with hybrid OR technology and one state-of-the-art cardiac suite.
  • An expanded behavioral health unit.
  • A new, dedicated emergency department entrance off of NE 10th St. for improved patient drop-off and area for mass casualty incident response.
  • A new circle drive leading to the single, main hospital entrance with concourse entry points, enhanced wayfinding and intuitive patient flow.
  • Improved ancillary and support services: laboratory, pharmacy, respiratory care.
  • Larger, single-patient rooms with dedicated family zones.
  • Enhanced patient and family experience.
  • 6,500 square-foot interior "meditative" courtyard.
