Be a part of a local health system dedicated to delivering world-class healthcare to rural-based communities like those in the Yakima Valley. As the largest system based in Eastern Washington, Astria Health has created important opportunities for healthcare providers committed to delivering inpatient hospital care and emergency services, ambulatory and ambulatory surgical care, and outpatient primary care and multi-specialty services for those living and working in the Yakima Valley; the birthplace of Washington State's wine industry and the state's agricultural heartland.
Astria Health is aggressively expanding its existing programs and adding vital new service lines focused on the healthcare delivery challenges facing rural-based communities. It is a regional, locally-controlled, network of both hospitals and clinics with primary care physicians, providers and specialists conveniently located throughout the Yakima Valley. Astria Health is committed to assuring the highest quality comprehensive care, across a continuum of care, for the people who live and work throughout the Region.
Astria Health's goal is ensuring the long-term sustainability of valuable, yet vulnerable, rural-based healthcare delivery systems, many of which are currently threatened in today's rapidly changing healthcare environment.
We are committed to reinvesting every dollar we earn into providing quality healthcare through new and expanded patient care services, increased patient access to care, offering new physician service, incorporating new technologies, and to attracting and retaining engaged professionals who share our vision.
Living in the Yakima Valley
The Yakima Valley is a growing agricultural center and one of the country's most important agriculture hubs. As the producer of over 75 percent of the hops in the United States and the home of over 100 wineries, Yakima Valley is filled with rolling hills of fruit orchards, hops fields, and vineyards.
If the arts and entertainment is what you and your family enjoy, sit back and listen to the Yakima Symphony at the Seasons Performance Hall or a show or concert at the Yakima Capital Theater, or jazz at the Ellensburg Jazz Festival. Outdoor concerts are a special treat and offered free of charge at many of the nationally-acclaimed wineries or breweries located throughout the Valley.
With four distinct seasons, outdoor experiences are available year round. Centered within miles of some of the country's most epic beauty, the Yakima Valley provides a balance of nature with the cultural and excitement of local venues as well as some of the nation's most exciting cities nearby.
The Pacific Northwest is a wonderful place to live for both providers and their families and the Yakima Valley is located at its center. For example, the Cascades, Mt. Adams, Mt. Rainier, Yakima Canyon, and the beautiful Columbia River Gorge can be reached within hours. And if you're craving for the fast-pace of a world-class city? Both Seattle, Washington and Portland, Oregon are only hours away. While the San Juan Islands, Vancouver and British Columbia, Canada make for memorable weekend trips.
