At Overlake Medical Center & Clinics, we have many amenities and services to make your visit more comfortable.
Due to COVID-19, our hospital visitor policy has been temporarily modified. Please see our visitor policy page for the most recent information.
Hospital Waiting Areas
There are special waiting areas throughout the hospital for your family and friends with facilities for connecting to the internet. Resources and support were thoughtfully designed in new waiting areas with comfort in mind. There are facilities for connecting to the internet, reading, writing, even sleeping.
Cell Phone Use
For the safety of patients and to ensure the integrity of medical devices, cell phones must be turned off prior to entering patient care areas. If you must use your cell phone, please make sure you are in a public area and always more than five feet from any medical equipment.
There are public phones located throughout the hospital. There are also courtesy phones (white telephones) that will allow you to make local calls for free. Dial 9 to get an outside line + area code + number.
To ensure the safety of our patients and staff, we have a special system for visitors entering the main hospital at night. After 9 p.m., all visitors must enter the hospital through the Emergency Department located on the first floor of Building 1, South Tower. The other entrances to the hospital re-open at 5 a.m.
Overlake Medical Center & Clinics prohibits the carrying of any firearm or weapon on hospital and clinics’ premises.
Photo, Video and Audio Recording Notice
We kindly ask all patients and visitors to refrain from taking photographs and/or video and/or audio recordings of staff during your visit. Please obtain permission from staff members to photograph, video or audio record them. Washington state law (RCW 9.73.030) prohibits recording of private communications or conversations without consent.
