Snyder Institute of Cardiac, Thoracic and Vascular Care
The Snyder Institute of Cardiac, Thoracic and Vascular Care is the second "single-stay" cardiac unit in the state. Featuring 12 spacious patient rooms and two dedicated, world-class surgical suites with a fully integrated smart operating room, the Snyder Institute is Yakima's premier choice for complete cardiac care. This $6 million remodel allows patients and family members the convenience and comfort of having one room for the entire stay, steps away from the most experienced cardiac doctors and nurses in the Valley. We are proud to honor the longtime dedication of surgeon Mark Snyder, MD in the naming of our unit.
