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.

Mask Requirements

To minimize the risk of spreading COVID-19, Virginia Mason Memorial (VMM) would like to remind all patients and visitors that masks are REQUIRED at all VMM facilities, including our clinics.

To conserve supplies, we request that all patients and visitors bring masks to their appointments. A limited number of reusable cloth masks, made by community members, will be available if you need one.

We also strongly encourage all community members to wear masks when in public - this is one of our best tools to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

UPDATED! May 26: New Visitation Policy

As a response to the current community situation with COVID-19, we are suspending most in-person visits to our hospitalized patients. The decision to suspend hospital visits was difficult and made only after careful consideration.

Physician Recruitment:

We have reduced the number of Physician and Provider positions we are recruiting for in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Should you be interested in possible employment with Virginia Mason Memorial, please contact us at physicianrecruitment@yvmh.org. We are actively reviewing our staffing needs and new positions are being approved for posting. We appreciate your interest in us and hope to have the opportunity to consider you for a role with VMM.

Additional Spiritual Resources During COVID-19

Chaplains at Virginia Mason Memorial Hospital provide care for every patient regardless of their personal beliefs or non-beliefs. For support, assistance, prayers, and all other spiritual care requests, please email spiritualcare@yvmh.org or call the spiritual care office: (509) 575-8035

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. Calls are confidential. Chaplains will listen, provide encouragement, offer help and resources, and if desired, offer prayer. If you are part of a faith community a chaplain can help you connect with them.

Virtual Chaplaincy

Without regular visits from family and friends a stay in the hospital can be even more challenging. One of our newest offerings, Virtual Chaplaincy using Zoom, helps make connections. By contacting the Spiritual Care team at the email or phone number above you can request a Zoom meeting. Family and friends throughout the Yakima Valley, from the four corners of the state, from across the country and even internationally, are meeting with patients via Zoom to offer their love and support. Due to the popularity of this option scheduling and frequency may, at times, be limited.

Elective Surgeries

Based on directives from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Virginia Mason Memorial is postponing elective surgeries and procedures.
