ABOUT THE FACILITY About Multicare Yakima Memorial Hospital:
MultiCare’s roots in the Pacific Northwest go back to 1882, with the founding of Tacoma’s first hospital.

Guided by our mission, vision and values, we are on continuous journey to deliver the services that our communities need, and to ensure access to those services, now and in the future.
