Virginia Mason Memorial Lower Valley Specialty Center
New Virginia Mason Memorial Lower Valley Specialty Center serves patients closer to home
Fax: (509) 837-0653
Virginia Mason Memorial's new Lower Valley Specialty Center brings high-quality specialty care to our patients closer to where they live.
Between 14 and 17 percent of Virginia Mason Memorial's specialty care patients have been traveling from the Lower Valley to Yakima to receive that care, sometimes more than once each week. So Virginia Mason Memorial decided to come to them by opening the Lower Valley Specialty Center.
Patients in need of high-quality specialty care can now receive that treatment close to home by providers who will travel to treat them -- providers they already know and trust. The staff has been chosen to support our Latino community. Bilingual speakers are ready to help all patients who come through our doors in Sunnyside.
The center will be open Monday through Friday and will feature specialists in the following fields of medicine:
- Cardiovascular (with physicians from The Yakima Heart Center)
- Wound Care
- Hematology Oncology
- Lab Services
- Infusion Care
All patients must be referred by their primary care provider for specialty care, whether that care is in Yakima or Sunnyside. But we welcome those who live in the Lower Valley to talk to their provider about the new location. Virginia Mason Memorial's new Specialty Center also supports a healthcare network that is already in place, including Lower Valley hospitals and primary care clinics.
