In 1951 the Dick Joseph family created a legacy that would benefit our community for generations to follow by donating the land for a new hospital to the community. The community quickly rallied around this donation and created the Tahoe Forest Hospital District. Fifty-five years later, Tahoe Forest Health System continues to thrive under this heritage of philanthropy.
Your donations make a variety of important services and programs possible, and ensure that our Health System can continue to provide the margin of excellence our residents, second homeowners and visitors rely on. New cancer treatment chairs, diagnostic equipment, children's libraries for our Hospice program, an educational resource center in the Briner Imaging Center, underwriting for a nutrition program in our local schools, and healthy aging programs for seniors are just a few of the visions we have been able to realize through philanthropic support.
Donations to the Foundation may be directed to a specific department, program or service, or directed to "area of most need." Gifts may be made in honor of a family member or friend, or in memoriam. In any case, your funds are ensuring the ongoing provision of excellent health care for residents and visitors alike.
