Serving children with special and developmental healthcare needs and their families, this comprehensive family-centered organization aims to meet each child's need for individualized care.

More than a decade ago, families, businesses, community leaders and health care providers in the Yakima Valley came together to share their dream for a medical, educational and therapy center that would serve children and families with special health care needs. Many service providers had repeatedly heard concerns from families about the lack of coordinated and locally available services for these children.

In 1993 the local agencies began working together to identify ways to improve and streamline services for children and families. Using information provided by families, service providers throughout the region formulated the concept of Children's Village, a regional integrated center for children with special needs and their families, with multiple service providers all under one roof.

Today, that vision lives in a colorful, magical, fun and truly exciting medical facility.  At Children's Village, children with chronic health conditions get all of their needs met in one special place. In real terms, this means an end to driving all over town and out of town to find treatment specialists; dependable child care readily available for siblings; simplified registration forms due to shared computer systems; and a decrease in parents missing work while trying to juggle appointments and paperwork. To the families it serves, Children's Village is a blessing and provides healthier, happier living for the entire family.

Among the many facility highlights are the fun and glittery mine shaft elevator, the beautiful warm water therapy pond and Miracle Street, a miniature town with a tree-lined street (hallway), and colorful flags that bring to life the donors and organizations who have committed their resources to the facility.

At its core mission, the center integrates health services, behavior services, mental health services and educational services to optimize daily life for the child and family. Situated in an inviting, child-friendly environment, core services at Children's Village include:

  • Pediatric medical evaluations.
  • Occupational and physical therapy.
  • Speech and language services.
  • Educational services.
  • Pediatric medical specialty clinics.
  • Drop-in child care for siblings.
  • Mental health services.
  • Pediatric dental care.
  • Family support services.
  • Behavioral health services.
  • Fetal alcohol syndrome clinics.
  • Autism spectrum disorder evaluations.
  • Cleft palate clinics and coordination.

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.
