We have an opening for a committed, dedicated Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrician in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Join an innovative Neurodevelopmental Center with busy DBPeds practice and strong emphasis on interdisciplinary care for children and youth with special health care needs and their families.  As an FQHC, we are a patient-centered medical home dedicated to serving our communities.  Taking care of a patient’s health means caring for them with compassion.  We treat our patients the way they want to be treated, regardless of where they live, where they are from, or what they can pay.  Our doors are open to all, regardless of their citizenship status.

In this outpatient position, you will provide diagnostic services and guide interventions for children and youth with special needs and their families. The practice sees patients with a variety of developmental and behavioral challenges, including autism spectrum disorders, learning disabilities, developmental delays, disruptive behavior disorders, intrauterine exposures, foster care, Down Syndrome, and ADHD.

With over 30 different kinds of specialized services provided, families no longer have to travel long distances for specialty care. At Children's Village, we believe in interdisciplinary care and work collaboratively with numerous clinical partners, including:

  • Pediatric Speech
  • Occupational Therapy
  • Physical Therapy
  • Applied Behavioral Analysis Therapy

Yakima County is the fruit basket of Washington and offers livelihood to many families with the abundance of its harvest.  The harvest includes the nation’s leading export in hops and exports in apples, grapes, cherries, and asparagus.  The Yakima Valley is also home to many breweries, wineries, and cider houses.  The abundance of agriculture contributes to the livelihood of our migrant farmworkers, warehouse workers, transportation industry, food industry, sustainability in farm-to-table programs, and more.   Healthy communities are needed to produce these services. In addition, Yakima Valley Farm Workers Clinic is dedicated to ensuring we are available to keep our communities healthy, educated, and informed of our services.

Our neighborhood centers offer affordable, high-quality care for families - their kids and grandparents. We help when they’re hurting – and even when they’re not. Whether they’re about to be a mom for the first time, trying to soothe their 6-year-old’s toothache, helping their homebound grandmother get her medicine, or deciding the best foods to feed their family. We can even help when they’re looking for work or trying to keep their home warm in the wintertime. We’re here for our communities.

All in one place.

We are who we are because of our migrant farmworkers.
