Project FutureCare, Overlake Medical Center's $250 million, five-year campus renewal project, is 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 will continue to set the standard for overall healthcare excellence.
The cornerstone of the project—a new, 240,000 square-foot tower—will offer 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, with a concourse-style drop-off, will reconfigure the campus for improved wayfinding and patient experience.
Project FutureCare involves three construction phases, with the final phase to be completed in 2022. 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 will grow 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.
Overlake Medical Center & Clinics today celebrated a milestone event in their construction project—a ceremony known as a topping off—by placing the final steel beam in place on its new 240,000-square-foot tower.
