Evergreen Hospital Emergency & Trauma Center Level III - Kirkland
The Evergreen Hospital Medical Center along with Overlake Hospital Medical Center in Bellevue, is one of two medical centers with a Level III designation on the east side of Lake Washington. While the center does not have the full complement of specialists that a Level I or II center has, it does have resources to provide emergency resuscitation, surgery and intensive care of most trauma patients.
In 2011, Evergreen Medical Center was ranked #2 in Washington state and Top 10% in the nation for General Surgery by HealthGrades.
Evergreen Hospital Trauma Center serves as a backup to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle in case of a regional disaster or wide-spread or large-scale emergency.
