Overlake opens new helistop at its Bellevue campus
Earlier this week, Overlake Hospital Medical Center opened a new helistop at its main Bellevue campus to provide more efficient emergency treatment for patients who need to be airlifted.
“This helistop will be a great asset to our community, enabling Overlake to provide faster response times in bringing patients here for treatment, or in some situations, getting patients to other healthcare facilities in the region,” said Craig Hendrickson, Overlake’s president and chief executive officer. “And because Overlake is a Level III trauma center and backup responder to Harborview Medical Center, the helistop will greatly enhance Overlake’s ability to provide emergency treatment for severely ill and injured patients.”
The Seattle Times covered the helistop opening, along with KOMO-TV and KIRO-TV.
