Regional Health System

A new healthcare system that will bring Sunnyside Community Hospital and Clinics, Yakima Regional Medical and Cardiac Center and Toppenish Community Hospital together to provide healthcare designed for the unique and special needs of our patients and communities—at each stage of life. Pending the final acquisition of Yakima Regional Medical and Cardiac Center and Toppenish Community Hospital later this year, the system will provide local control of healthcare delivery to the people and families of the region with the following benefits to the communities of Yakima Valley. 

  • Returns both Yakima Regional Medical and Cardiac Center and Toppenish Community Hospital to not-for-profit status and local control so together we can invest to build healthier communities
  • Yakima Regional Medical and Cardiac Center and Toppenish Community Hospital are community resources that need to be preserved
  • Non-profit status ensures greater reinvestment back into the local healthcare economy in order to improve the overall well-being of the families and communities we serve 
  • Joining together into a single system helps us realize our vision to make a positive impact on patients and local communities 
  • Creates an affiliation with a system that has the expertise and financial resources to ensure quality and services
  • Maintains local board governance
  • Stabilizes services and programs
  • Ensures resources to ensure quality and services
  • Retains choice and access to healthcare
  • Creates operational efficiencies
  • Supports community partnerships aimed at identified health needs and population health
  • Provides increased level of charity care needed to improve the health of those most vulnerable in our communities
