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.

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.

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 firstname.lastname@example.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 email@example.com or call the spiritual care office: (509) 575-8035
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.
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.
