North Lake Tahoe Community Health Care Auxiliary
The North Lake Tahoe Community Health Care Auxiliary (NLTCHCA) is a nonprofit corporation made up of volunteers dedicated to giving their time and financial resources to help others. Membership is currently 70 volunteers. The Auxiliary is an integral part of Incline Village Community Hospital. Members of the hospital auxiliary enjoy giving back to the community and invite you to join them.
- To raise funds used towards the purchase of specialized medical equipment
- To help improve the quality of care our hospital patients receive
- To fund scholarships for students entering the health care field
- To consider requests for health care needs within the community.
They also participate in the day to day operation of the hospital, helping wherever needed. The Auxiliary also operates a year round Gift Shop in the hospital. Merchandise is constantly being updated and unique gifts can be found there.
The NLTCHCA Executive Board meets on the first Monday of every month, and general membership lunch meetings are held every other month on the second Monday beginning in February. A monthly newsletter, "Hot Flashes!", keeps the membership informed of past and upcoming activities.
The North Lake Tahoe Community Health Care Auxiliary is very active in fundraising for Incline Village Community Hospital as well as in the local community. In any given month, you'll find auxilians contributing to the community through the gift of funds for special projects, hosting events that bring people together and helping to raise money for many worthy projects. Most of the Auxiliary's fundraising activities take place during the summer months, and have traditionally included a "Classy Garage Sale" in June, a Lobster Dinner in July, a Hole-in-One Contest in August and a Golf Tournament in September.
The members enjoy preparing and serving a monthly luncheon for the hospital staff which is always enthusiastically anticipated and appreciated. They also decorate the hospital for Christmas.
Two of our members, Nan Healy and Ginny Moore, were recognized in the Bonanza newspaper's "Locals 2006" for their selfless service to Incline Village. Nan Healy, Jean Klein and Holly Lefkowitz have received Excellence in Volunteerism awards from the Nevada Hospital Association for rural Nevada.
