At Astria Health, we are passionate about our work.  Our providers specialize in a variety of fields and are committed to the well-being of their community. Some of our specialists are doing procedures no other hospitals in our area are doing! With 3 local hospitals, 14 primary care & walk-in clinics, 24 specialty clinics, and over 100 employed providers; we are carrying out our vision to build sustainable healthcare organizations that deliver comprehensive quality care to improve health in the communities we serve. 

Astria Health, headquartered in the heart of Yakima Valley WA, is the parent non-profit organization of Astria Sunnyside Hospital, Astria Toppenish Hospital, and Astria Regional Medical Center in Yakima. 

We are a privately and locally owned health system that brought together 3 local hospitals that have strong connections to our communities.  In doing so, we are truly caring out our mission through:

  •        New or expanded patient care services
  •        Access to care
  •        New physician services
  •        New technologies
  •        Attracting and retaining engaged professionals who share our vision


Wanting something more than a "B&B" Pediatric practice?

We are in need of a BC/BE Pediatrician to join another Pediatrician and mid-level in an established practice to replace a retiring Pediatrician.

Practice highlights include:

  • Excellent compensation package including extremely generous base salary with production incentives along with traditional employed benefit packages including hiring/commencement bonuses and relocation allowances, CME allowances, residency stipends, malpractice, health benefits, vacation, retirement and much more!
  • A stimulating and interesting practice with availability of subspecialty pediatric consultations and care co-managed with specialists in Seattle and Spokane.
  • Because of our excellent relationship with these specialists, we are able to co-manage patients with complex medical problems right here in our home town without having the patient and family leave the area for specialized care!
  • Variety of cases –not a general “B & B” pediatric practice.  Mainly outpatient practice but while on call must be comfortable with inpatient/rounding and attending deliveries at 1 hospital. 
  • Low call volume shared with other pediatricians in the community.
  • Inviting and warm culture with supportive administration, providers, and staff.
  • Close knit community that embraces their providers.
  • Bilingual in Spanish would be great! –but not required.
  • Immediate service area encompasses close to 80,000. (Astria Health catchment area close to 300,000 residents)
  • NHSC and WHLRP (WSAC) loan repayment approved site.


Our only Critical Access Hospital within our health system, offers services you typically wouldn’t see or expect in a smaller community.  The hospital is located within the Yakima Valley and about 35/40 miles east of Yakima and 35/40 miles west of Tri Cities, WA.  The 25-bed hospital is a CAH that operates a series of primary and specialty clinics. The hospital offers a 24 hour level IV ER dept., 7 bed ICU, 3 general OR and 1 dedicated for C-sections, a level I cardiac facility, a cancer center, a FBC, inpatient and ambulatory surgical center including neurological, orthopedic, general, plastic, vascular, ENT,  and hospitalists.  The hospital also offers HBOT, wound care, advanced imaging and diagnostics, and a comprehensive psychiatric program.  ASH serves more than 80,000 residents of the lower Yakima Valley and takes pride in providing the absolute highest standard of care with excellent services.  (Astria Health total service area encompasses close to 300,000 residents.)
