It's unfortunate that you felt as though the pay and opportunities for advancement weren’t up to par. We review our pay structure annually to remain market-competitive.
We have also recently raised the company-wide minimum wage to well above the state minimum and are always looking for ways to promote from within. We hope you consider coming back and taking a look at our job boards for open positions.
Thank you for the review!
First and foremost, thank you for serving the patients of Yakima. We couldn’t help more than 140,000 people every year without dedicated members of our health care team, like you.
We know that we are a busy organization, because the need for affordable health care in our community is very high. The work you do, indeed, makes a different in improving the health and well-being of our community. Thank you for being a valued member of the team!
We are so happy to have you as part of the team that helps serve our communities. We are so thankful for administrators like you who believe in the mission of providing quality health care to our communities that truly need it. We are thrilled to have you as a coworker!
Thank you for your feedback. We are indeed a very busy organization. We have so many patients that need our care and creating access to care is a top priority. Another top priority, however, is ensuring our employees have a sustainable workload and that our everyone, including our providers are happy and healthy. We encourage all our providers to discuss their workload concerns with their medical director and clinic director. We know that our leadership team truly cares and is always open and responsive to concerns regarding work-life.
We’re happy to report that our provider turnover rates are well below the average of other community health care organizations. Last year our turnover rate was just 12 percent, compared to other CHC’s who report turnover at 15-20+ percent.
We wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors.
We want to take a moment and say thank you for the years you gave to our patients and communities. We know many of the positions in our system are emotionally challenging because of the type of work we do, the people we serve, and because of the amount of passion we have.
You are no exception to that. We are sad to have to sometimes say goodbye to quality employees, such as yourself. Keep an eye on our job board for openings that might fit your experience!
Thank you for being part of the great work that we do across the organization. We are truly thankful for the talented and passionate individuals we have in our organization.
Because there’s always more that can be done, we understand completely the long hours and hard work that our staff put in. With that in mind, Employee Recognition is one of our top priorities. We are so excited to roll out the “shout out” program, where fellow staff can recognize one another for the great work they are doing.
We completely understand that when you’re so passionate about the work you are doing, it is very easy to take it home with you.
We are constantly working on more ways to help our staff with their work/life balance. We’ve switched to a new EMR that helps providers complete their charting with better timing. We also work with supervisors across the organization to help recognize our employees for the great work they are doing, and help recognize when our employees might need encouragement to provide better self-care.
We are SO GLAD you are part of the mission of YVFWC. If you have additional ideas on work/life balance, please let your supervisor know and reach out to your Human Resources Business Partner. Thank you for doing what you do!
Thank you for the five-star review of Yakima Valley Farm Workers Clinic! We are thrilled to have you as part of our care team, providing quality care to those who truly need it. If you do decide to relocate, we’ll be sad to see you go.
Please feel free to continue to check in with our job boards and your recruiting office to see if a position opens up within our system to a location that better suits your family’s needs. We advertise all our openings internally so that our employees are aware of new opportunities. YVFWC encourages and fosters internal growth. Employees are also sent weekly jobs highlighting specific job openings. We encourage you to have an open line with your direct supervisor and express your interest in transferring.
We know that wherever you go, you’ll continue to bring quality dental care to people that need it. Thank you for doing what you do!
We are sorry you are having a difficult time in your position.
YVFWC has systems in place so that our employees can work with Human Resources partners if they feel they are not being heard by their supervisors.
We sincerely urge you to reach out to your HR Business Partner at ext. 3600.
Our services are needed by so many people in our community that we are always striving to discover how we can maintain our world-class care AND see just one more patient. Much of our work is very fast-paced and we are so glad you are part of the mission.
Thank you for your service to our patients!
Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. We want you to know that we take every review seriously and are looking into these matters.
As a current employee, we also urge you to reach out to your Human Resources Business Partner at ext. 3600. We have systems in place at our organization so that employees can contact HR if they feel they are not being heard by their supervisors.

Funny how HR keeps getting on here and suggesting people contact them.
They were contacted by MULTIPLE people about this issue and have done nothing to correct it. They are now trying to squelch issues of sexual harassment by one of their worthless supervisors.
Maybe if HR would have done their job when it was reported to them YEARS ago about the bullying and harassment, this wouldn't have been allowed to happen.
Thank you for your review! We believe in the work we do at YVFWC and that includes all departments. Internally there are many training opportunities to advance your career.
We are always sad to lose someone who believes in the mission such as you and wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors.
It sounds like we could have done a better job connecting you with our HR Business Partners who are here to support staff who feel they aren’t being heard by their supervisors.
We genuinely hope you have success in your current endeavors.
Thank you so much! We are happy to hear that you are part of the Yakima Valley Farm Workers Clinic family and enjoying your time here. Many of our employees stay with our organization for decades. I hope that you’ll be one of them.
It really warms our hearts to hear that you’ve found a good fit at Yakima Valley Farm Workers Clinic.
Our work is profoundly rewarding and we are proud of our staff who are making such a profound difference in our patients’ lives.
We are here to serve the patients and are here to do so in such a great capacity, it’s no different for the internal departments like HR, Billing, accounting, and so on. Our work can be very stressful when working with internal hiring managers who are desperate to get staff on boarded. This is where our meticulous hiring practices, which can sometimes slow the process, create an internal conflict. We are in growth mode and there is a lot of information to work with. Part of the challenge and the blessing of where we are: our impact will be greater, but the growing pains can be… painful. We thank you for your feedback. We need to continue to be engaged in our employees and hearing the stresses.
