Partnerships to Improve Health Care Delivery
Our vision is to create an inclusive health system that is the community’s most trusted source for their health care.
That’s why we’ve established these strategic partnerships with other area health care organizations to ensure that our community has access to the highest-quality care.
Eastside Health Alliance
Strategic Joint Venture
Through this strategic joint venture, EvergreenHealth and Overlake Medical Center are exploring ways to improve access, coordinate care and offer the greatest quality and value to residents of the East King County.
The joint venture is structured around three defined initiatives:
- Collaboration in cardiac, neuroscience and thoracic surgery services.
- A Coordinated Quality Program (CQP) to share safety and quality data and best practices.
- Formation of a Clinically Integrated Network (CIN), known as the Eastside Health Network, which combines EvergreenHealth Partners and the Overlake Provider Network. This will standardize quality improvement, patient care management for proper utilization of care, clinical protocol development and work directly with business and payers to enhance value and lower the cost of care.

Eastside Health Network
Clinically integrated network
As the first clinically integrated network in the Puget Sound region, the Eastside Health Network brings together these services across East King County:
- 1,400+ care providers
- 41 primary care locations
- 128 specialty practices
- 4 hospitals
- 11 urgent care centers
- 5 emergency care centers
Working together, we’re able to streamline care, increase cost efficiencies and improve access to resources. This means we can provide the best possible care at a lower cost, resulting in better value for our patients.
Clinical integration also aligns providers around quality and cost in a way not achievable in traditional health care models.

Overlake Medical Center
Through this strategic partnership, EvergreenHealth and Overlake Medical Center are creating both a broader network of care in the Puget Sound region and developing new models of care and innovation in ways that make clinical and economic sense without costly duplication of services.
The partnership involves clinical collaborations and integration of care across a wide-range of specialties, beginning with cardiology, neurology and home care. Additional areas of clinical integration and collaboration will follow.
Seattle Cancer Care Alliance
Collaborative Partnership - Halvorson Cancer Center
This partnership gives patients at EvergreenHealth’s Halvorson Cancer Center access to Seattle Cancer Care Alliance’s (SCCA) oncologists, innovative treatments and one-of-a-kind clinical trials right here on our Kirkland campus.
This has allowed us to expand access and bring all facets of cancer treatment together in one convenient, patient-centered location.
It also means cancer patients can focus on getting better and not on having to travel to downtown Seattle for care.
