Our Mission

Community Health of Central Washington provides quality healthcare through service and education.

Community Health of Central Washington was founded with one bold and clear vision: All people in our region should enjoy access to affordable and appropriate health care.

That sounds simple enough. But providing quality health care service is complex. That vision has caused us to grow, and to provide a wide array of services in multiple sites.

Primary Care

Today, CHCW is the medical home for more than 30,000 people in central Washington. We provide comprehensive care for all ages, regardless of the ability to pay. Our patients receive preventive services, care for acute and chronic illness, and care in our clinics, hospitals and other sites. We provide prenatal and obstetric services in Yakima and Kittitas Counties.


Education has always been an important part of our mission.

Electric Health Records (EHR)

CHCW implements electronic health records (EHR)

How does this benefit you?

Your healthcare team will know at the time of your visit what tests or screenings you are due for based on your age, health and gender
We can run reports when you aren’t in the office, to let us know what you may be due for so we can notify you
We can track referrals, labs and other tests to be sure that you received the care you needed and we received the report
You will be able to use the Patient Portal to check your labs, request appointments and look at what services you are due for

What can I expect?

At each visit the nurse will spend more time with you to review your healthcare needs and schedule routine preventive services that are needed
At the end of each visit, you will receive a summary of what occurred with a list of your medicines and plans for future tests, appointments, etc.
We’re excited about what this system does to help us provide you with better care according to all the newest guidelines and in an efficient manner. Your provider will be able to spend the visit talking to you about what is important to you rather than searching through your chart for information or trying to remember what preventive services you may be due for.
