Virginia Mason Memorial resumes surgeries.

Hip replacement surgery

Read one patient's story: Hip replacement and home the same day.

Curtis was one of the first hip-replacement patients in Virginia Mason Memorial history who didn't have to spend the night in the hospital after surgery, which is a growing trend.

Curtis Johnstone of Yakima waited a long time for his hip-replacement surgery - 10 years, as a matter of fact. By 2018 his doctor told him the cartilage in his right hip was gone. It was bone on bone. "It would ache, and I couldn't sleep at night," he says. "I'd have to take ibuprofen or ice it to try to calm it down." But Curtis's job didn't offer health insurance. So he literally limped along until he turned 65 and could sign up for Medicare.

In early 2020 and fully insured, Curtis, 65, was thrilled to finally book his full hip replacement surgery at Virginia Mason Memorial hospital. Then the COVID-19 pandemic hit. As a safety precaution, all elective surgeries at Virginia Mason Memorial were halted, and Curtis’s surgery was cancelled.

So when schedulers called him in late May to rebook his hip replacement, Curtis had no reservations. “They asked me if I’d be willing to come in, and I said, ‘Absolutely!’ I figured the hospital was one of the safest places I could be,” he says. “All the precautions were in place.” Those precautions include a three-day quarantine before surgery, COVID testing and, on the day of surgery, a Memorial employee greets patients at their car, provides a mask, checks their temperature, rules out any new COVID symptoms, and helps them fill out paperwork.

Infusion Care team 'keeps going' and patient couldn't be more grateful

Hip replacement surgery

Gregory White has been coming to the Outpatient Infusion Care clinic at Virginia Mason Memorial for the past 10 years.

“This team is like my family,” he says. “I know most of them, and know about their kids, and they know everything about me!”

Greg was diagnosed at birth with a rare, hereditary blood disorder called Diamond-Blackfan Anemia, which affects the ability of bone marrow to produce red blood cells. The disease is often treated with blood transfusions. In fact, to manage his symptoms Greg used to have blood transfusions every three weeks. But, as he recalls, “my quality of life was almost non-existent. I was homebound and in bed 75% of the time.”

Greg is a huge baseball fan and loves anything sports-related. Anyone who knows him will tell you that Alabama is Greg’s No. 1 favorite college team. Once an avid golfer, he had a 30-year career ranging from caddy to golf pro, and everything in between until his disease forced him to stop working.

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.

Hospital Lab Services

All out-patient lab services - including newborn screens and bilirubin collections - will now be provided at Memorial Cornerstone Medicine, 4003 Creekside Loop. Hours are 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday; 8 a.m. to noon, Saturday and Sunday.

Hospital Pharmacy

The hospital pharmacy is closed to the public for the duration of the pandemic. The public may choose to have those prescriptions transferred to VMM's Pharmacy at Creekside or the pharmacy of their choice.
