Health Unit Coordinator critical care (Current Employee) – Bellevue, WA – May 27, 2016
The people I work with REALLY care, they care about their patients, the families and their co workers. My mother has been a patient and received nothing but the best of care, and not because she was MY mother. Every patient that comes to our unit is cared for like this. Even after 15 yrs of employment, I love going to work. I will truly miss my co workers and probably would have to go back to visit once in a while. I have developed many friendships and plan on keeping those as long as I am suppose to.
Radiologic Technologist (Former Employee) – Bellevue, WA – January 12, 2016
Great place to work. The facility provides a great working environment, from the slick wood floors, modern amenities, and great staff. They use top notch equipment which as a technologist this can really make or break your experience I mean you want things to help you not hamper you. I felt like the management or administrators really got it when it came to competing with area health systems. I have worked for a handful of places and some places are pretty down at the heel. I would encourage anyone looking to work here to consider this hospital.
Great Technology, Nice Environment, Forward Looking, Benefits.
Admitting Registrar (Former Employee) – Bellevue, WA – November 16, 2015
I enjoyed working for this facility and the people I worked with. It was a small hospital facility but advanced in many ways with their education, benefits, pay ethics. I was an admitting registrar in the ER and General Admitting and was able to learn new skills and work in more areas when needed.
Very Professional, Skilled Facility that included employees in ideas
The hospital downsized, jobs were selective with less hours
the medical personnel are some of the finest in the country
Anesthesia Technician (Former Employee) – Bellevue, WA – September 15, 2015
Assisted anesthesia staff in adult anesthesia care. Responsible for anesthesia set up and care in complex cases like open heart, vascular, trauma, neuro. and bariatric surgeries. I worked with the lead anesthesia technician John Gonzales to in-service operating room staff about anesthesia policies and patient care. Assisted anesthesiologists in difficult airway management in and out of the OR setting. Responded to emergencies in a timely manner as directed by the anesthesiologist. I preformed quality controls on lab equipment and demonstrated ingenuity in correcting anesthesia problems that would arise.
Patient Services Representative (Current Employee) – Bellevue, WA – September 14, 2015
I do enjoy working at Overlake, it is a very nice work environment. I love working under pressure and resolving issues. The most enjoyable part of my day is the people I work with and the patients I have contact with. I also recognize the revenue that can be generated by keeping patients happy. I enjoy the sales aspect in that. The hardest part of my day is the commute from Everett to Bellevue, with no options of a different route on the 405 corridor. For the most part, management is good. However they are always so busy, it is difficult to get any one on one time, which is frustrating when you have found a more efficient way of doing something.
Nice campus, good team
Even though continuing education for different systems may be offered by management, it never seems to happen. There is no time. There is no room for growth. Also, they do not allow any type of logo wear for "Blue Friday", no matter how professional or tastefull.
Mother Baby Unit RN (Current Employee) – Bellevue, WA – July 7, 2015
Great teamwork. Was understaffed and a very stressful place to work. Rotating shifts made it hard to have good work life balance but the manager is great and the nurses are very hard working. Would work there again.
medical imaging (Current Employee) – bellevue,wa – March 22, 2015
The staff make this place great. Caring, compassionate, dedicated. I've been in medical imaging for a long time and this place is pretty good. Upper management is shady. No union therefore seniority doesn't matter as far as layoffs/firings go. Watching your back and keeping your head down are an unwritten rule. Having said that- staff are great, nurses are great, equipment is cutting edge and well maintained.
Radiology technologist (Former Employee) – Bellevue, WA – February 5, 2015
A used to be a great company (in my opinion and my department), but as the years went by and "a" director got hired a few years back, combined with the dirty manager, the department fell apart!!! It seems like the morale is still very low. It a shame because it used to be a great place to work.
Room Service Attendant (Former Employee) – Bellevue, WA – January 14, 2015
I started this job part time and I would mostly be around for delivering dinner and late snacks to patients. After a year I showed my supervisor that I could work more hours and she made me full time. I would start in the early morning to break a lady at the tickets and setting up the food trays. Around 6:30 A.M I would set up my delivery cart and start delivering breakfast to patients around the hospital. Take a break and help organize the kitchen for lunch. Deliver lunch. Set up tea and pastry for mother and baby area. Deliver those to mother and baby rooms. Take a break. Help set up the kitchen for dinner. That was my day. I learned a lot about dietary diets and a few medical terms from nurses. Only hardest part was finding good shoes with great support.
pre paid lunches, healthcare, 401k, awesome employees
Surgical Assistant (Former Employee) – Bellevue, WA – August 4, 2014
Everyday was a physically demanding day. I walked multiple miles in a day and moved heavy equipment around. Communication between everyone from doctors, to nurses, to techs, was key for things to run smoothly in the OR. What kept everyone sane was the friendships developed between co-workers that was still kept professional in the work place. The hardest part of the job was the lack of a consistent manager. There was never a full time manager in the OR, they were always on contract, so there would be periods where the hospital did not have a manager and we all needed to communicate with each other for the operating room to run smoothly. The most enjoyable part of the job was the people I worked with and the interesting surgeries that I got to see.
