Village Vibes - Join Us This Summer to Support the CHAMPs Campaign
July 13, 2023
Every year thousands of children in the Yakima Valley and surrounding areas depend on MultiCare Yakima Memorial’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, Pediatric Unit, Family Birthplace, Maternal Health, and Children’s Village clinics to provide the best health care possible. To provide this care, we rely on donations and community support, as Medicaid and insurance programs do not fully cover the cost of care. In Yakima County, approximately 47% of children use Medicaid as their primary health insurance. Your generous donations are helping to support these programs and the most vulnerable members of our community – our children.
Please know that I am forever grateful for the work you do for children and their families. You were a Godsend and a blessing in shaping my twin granddaughters' lives and enabled them to have a secure and confident future that could have been otherwise without your wise counsel and treatments. Keep up the good work.”
