Eastside Health Alliance

Welcome to the Eastside Health Alliance, a strategic joint venture between EvergreenHealth and Overlake Medical Center structured to serve the growing and dynamic Eastside community.

Joint Venture Components

  1. A coordinated quality program that allows the health systems to share safety and quality best practices.
  2. Collaboration within the two organizations' cardiac, cardiothoracic and neuroscience service lines which offers patients improved access and coordination of care close to where they live and work on the Eastside.
  3. Integration of Overlake Provider Network and EvergreenHealth Partners to create Eastside Health Network, a unified clinically integrated network combining independent and health system-employed providers who can comprehensively coordinate care across the Eastside.

Our Shared Vision

Overlake Medical Center and EvergreenHealth formed Eastside Health Alliance, a joint venture to improve the health and well-being of the Eastside community we both serve in the following ways:

  • Delivering high quality care and an exceptional patient experience at a lower overall cost.
  • Improving access and coordination of care.
  • Enhancing the depth and breadth of services offered on the Eastside, beginning in targeted service lines.

The joint venture will help drive the Triple Aim: simultaneously improving the health of the population, enhancing the experience and outcomes for the patient, and reducing per capita cost of care for the benefit of the communities we serve.

The two organizations will remain separate entities, and will collaborate through a 50/50 joint venture, structured as a limited liability company (LLC). The joint venture will have no impact on either organization’s governance or administration, financial or tax/ownership status (Overlake as a private, not for profit; EvergreenHealth as a public hospital district). The joint venture LLC will be governed by a new combined a Board of Directors, appointed by EvergreenHealth and Overlake.
