Overlake Honors Physician Leader as 'Dr. Overlake' 2014

Emergency Department Medical Director Steve Marshall named “Dr. Overlake”

BELLEVUE, Wash. (December 12, 2014) – Overlake Medical Center has honored Emergency Department Medical Director Steve Marshall, M.D. with a new honorary title – Dr. Overlake.

The honor of being named Dr. Overlake is an annual award handed out by the Medical Staff of Overlake to a physician who has gone above and beyond the standard to pursue excellence and to contribute to the betterment of the Eastside community. Dr. Steve Marshall is the first recipient.

“This award recognizes an individual who has dedicated years of their career to serving patients and staff in the true spirt of the mission and goals of Overlake Medical Center,” said Overlake Medical Center Chief of Staff Dr. Tom Miller at the hospital’s recent Medical Staff Appreciation dinner.

Marshall joined the medical staff of Overlake Medical center in 1986 as the hospital’s first residency-trained emergency medicine physician and would later become medical director of the Emergency Department in 2003. In his first fifteen years in the Emergency Department he treated more than 50,000 patients. He later served as Chief of Staff at the hospital from 2007-2008. 

Peers describe him as dedicated to his community and patients, a great role model and forward thinker. Marshall helped lead the hospital’s first foray into electronic medical records in 2005 and co-chaired the $12.5 million fundraising campaign to build the hospital’s south tower.

“I was very surprised,” Marshall said of receiving the recognition.  “It’s an extraordinary honor to be recognized by the medical staff.”

As medical director, Marshall leads a practice of 16 emergency medicine physicians and five mid-level providers in the treatment of approximately 44,000 emergency department patients a year.

“Our doctors are second to none from my point of view,” Marshall said of the medical staff that cares for his patients once they leave the emergency department.
