Overlook is fortunate to have staff that have worked here for many years with an average longevity greater than 10 years.  Many of our employees started working in the dietary, housekeeping, laundry, and activity departments, then through further education were promoted to higher level positions. Many of our nurses worked as a C.N.A. and/or Medtech prior to completing their nursing license.
