Dear Yakima Valley Residents,

The recent announcement that Astria Regional Medical Center is closing its doors has left all of us shocked and saddened by the news. There is a rich and longstanding history with this facility and its deep ties to the Yakima community. It has also left many questions for residents on where they can access high-quality, affordable healthcare in our Valley now. 

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to Prosser Memorial Health, a well-kept secret of excellence in healthcare. For the last three years, we have been quietly building our provider base, opening clinics in Grandview, Prosser, and Benton City, expanding the services we offer and bringing the most advanced technology to our hospital. 

Prosser Memorial Health’s commitment to the Yakima Valley is to improve the health of those we serve. We take this commitment very seriously and strive to always provide the best healthcare opportunities for you and your family with respect, hope, optimism and honesty. As part of our commitment, we recently invested in state-of-the art technology with our HD 3D mammography system that provides the best cancer screening available in the Valley. We have also purchased the Stryker Mako Robotic System and hired Dr. Sam Strebel, a Fellow from Johns Hopkins University, to lead our Joint Replacement Program. For a complete list of our providers, clinics, and the services we offer, visit our website at or contact our Community Relations Department directly at 509-786-6601. 

As a public not-for-profit hospital, we provide high-quality, accessible and affordable healthcare for all. We accept all insurances and will work with patients in need of financial support. During this time of change and transformation, you have my pledge that Prosser Memorial Health will do its part to ensure healthcare services are available for all. 

To Your Good Health!
