Physician & Provider Referral Program

There is no greater compliment about your work place than the referral of your family or friends!

We would like to thank you for your assistance with our recruitment process by providing you with a $2000 referral bonus!!*

*Referral bonuses are only paid to employees after the successful hire of their referred physician/provider.

This is how it works...

Virginia Mason Memorial physicians, providers and employees are eligible to receive a referral bonus for referring an external physician or provider that is hired by Memorial.

To qualify for a referral bonus, the referral candidate will need to give permission to be referred. Please direct all referrals to the Talent Acquisition and Provider Experience department. Please include the candidate's name, phone number and/or email address in the referral.

In the event that more than one physician, provider or employee refers the same candidate, the bonus will be paid for the hired referral that arrived in the recruitment department first. In the rare event the bonus is received at the same time, the Physician Referral Bonus will be divided equally.

Referrals will be valid for one year. Referrals/Applications received before 10/1/16 will not qualify for the Physician Referral Bonus Program.

Physicians referred who have already been sourced by the Talent Acquisition and Provider Experience department or with the assistance of a recruitment firm/agency are not eligible candidate physicians for the referral program.

Referrals may be made for open positions only. All current open positions can be found at: www.yakimavalleyliving.org

Only full-time or regular part-time physician positions qualify for the referral program.

To receive the referral bonus, the referring physician, provider or employee must be actively employed by Virginia Mason Memorial.

After the referral is made, the recruitment relationship will be between the candidate and the hiring team. Recruitment communication and updates will be provided only to the candidate, not to the referring physician, provider or employee.

Payment will be processed through payroll. The bonus will be taxed in compliance with federal and state guidelines.

The Referral Bonus Program may be revised or eliminated at the discretion of Administration and/or the Talent Acquisition and Provider Experience Department.

Additional Spiritual Resources During COVID-19

For prayers and spiritual care requests please email CurtisMcFarland@yvmh.org

Tele-Chaplaincy

There are times when a direct face to face spiritual care conversation is not the best option (due to distance, a pandemic, patient preference). That's where Tele-Chaplaincy provides another possibility. You can request chaplain support using your personal or hospital room phone to connect confidentially with a hospital chaplain. Chaplains will listen, provide encouragement, offer help and resources, if you are part of a faith community the chaplain can help you connect with them, and, if desired, the chaplain can provide prayer.
