An investment in world-class care, close to home.
Campaign FutureCare is a comprehensive, six-year campaign to raise $50 million to support a $250 million campus renewal project that will enhance care into the future.
The project takes place in three phases and adds state-of-the-art facilities to our outstanding services and compassionate care. Contributions can be made to the whole project or to a specific part of the project.
Phase 1: State-of-the-Art Cardiac Operating Rooms (COMPLETED)
Over 12,000 surgical procedures are done at Overlake each year—including nearly 300 cardiac surgeries. The need is expected to grow with demographic changes—particularly the aging of the population. By 2035, an estimated 20 percent of the Eastside’s residents will be 65 or older.
Phase 1 of the project included building two new operating rooms that will support current and future advancements in cardiac surgery as well as refurbishing an existing OR to meet the requirements of the future and accommodate the projected increase in the number of patients.
Phase 2: New East Tower and Childbirth Center (COMPLETED)
The new East Tower includes a beautiful new Childbirth Center. Features of the new Childbirth Center include an emergency department just for obstetric patients and a separate area designated for women at risk of preterm birth who require bed rest and monitoring. These specialized areas keep labor and delivery rooms free for women giving birth and increase the Center’s capacity.
The fourth and fifth floors of the East Tower house rooms for orthopedic, oncology, and cardiac patients. In addition, physical therapy facilities create ease of access to therapies that are a critical part of the healing process.
Phase 3: Expanded Behavioral Health Care (COMPLETED)
Overlake has a longstanding commitment to behavioral health care and operates the only hospital-based inpatient behavioral health treatment program on the Eastside. Additional services include outpatient behavioral health care and clinic-based psychiatrists, ensuring that psychiatric services are accessible to the community. The inpatient behavioral health unit has moved to a new space with upgraded counseling and treatment rooms as well as room for future expansion.
What Happens Next?
The old East Tower now stands empty and will be demolished by our construction team. Once the space has been cleared, they will build the Connector, a glass-walled corridor that will connect the two sides of our campus.
Many naming opportunities are still available, beginning at the $25,000 gift level.
