About Us

Emergency Associates of Yakima (EAY) is a privately owned, independently operated democratic corporation providing exclusive emergency health services to Yakima Valley Memorial Hospital. Our corporation is proud to have served the Yakima Valley for more than 30 years and we are looking to add partners. EAY is a high volume, highly compensated unit that treats roughly 80,000 patients annually - and all of its physicians are Board Certified and residency trained in Emergency Medicine.

EAY represents the emergency department (ED) at Yakima Valley Memorial Hospital. It is comprised of a 25-bed unit staffed by 75 specialists. Emergency care is available to all patients regardless of race, ethnic origin, religion or financial status. Physicians and nurses who are specially trained in emergency medicine provide care 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Other hospital specialists are available for consultation, special procedures and/or surgery. The ED provides for patients' emergent needs; and, all patients presenting to the ED are examined by a medical professional. It is the philosophy of EAY that patients seek to have an established relationship with a primary care physician for routine medical care.
