Overlake Hospital Emergency & Trauma Center Level III - Bellevue
The Overlake Trauma Center is designated a Level III trauma center. Evergreen Hospital and Overlake are the only hospitals 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.
Overlake's Trauma Center serves as a backup to Harborview Medical Center in case of a regional disaster or wide-spread or large-scale emergency.
Overlake's Trauma Center also provides Cardiac & Stroke Emergency care. The center received a Gold Plus Performance Achievement Award and is a certified Primary Stroke Center which provides rapid and early response for patients suffering from strokes.
