About Yakima Valley Farm Workers Clinic.

Our Story

Yakima Valley Farm Workers Clinic was born to address the needs of a vital but overlooked population. Despite being the lifeblood of the agricultural industry, migrant and seasonal farm workers were regularly denied access to health care resources.

Our founders set out to correct this injustice in the 1970s and we continue that effort to this day. Our mission to bring health care access to underserved communities has grown our network of care well beyond the Yakima Valley. Today we’re one of the largest community health center in the Pacific Northwest with over 40 locations bringing medical, dental, behavioral health, and social services to people in need.

Our network of care.

Yakima Valley Farm Workers Clinic is one of the Pacific Northwest’s largest community health centers, providing medical, dental, behavioral health, and social services to more than 171,000 people a year. With more than 60 unique service locations across Oregon (Clatsop, Marion, Multnomah, Umatilla, and Yamhill counties) and Washington (Benton, Franklin, Spokane, Whitman, and Yakima counties), we deliver affordable, comprehensive primary care for underserved populations in our communities. We also extend our network of care through our mobile health units and virtual visit technology, bringing essential care to our more remote patients.

Yakima Valley Farm Workers Clinic employs over 1,600 staff in addition to our medical and dental residents, administrative fellows, students, and volunteers. All of whom are dedicated to bring quality care to those in our communities who need it most. Yakima Valley Farm Workers Clinic is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, recognized by HRSA, The Joint Commission, and The National Committee for Quality Assurance for our accomplishments in community health care.
