In 1949, the Joseph family created a legacy that would benefit our community for generations to follow. The community quickly rallied around the Joseph’s donation of land for a new hospital, and by a vote of the general public, Tahoe Forest Hospital District was formed. Tahoe Forest Health System, a DBA of Tahoe Forest Hospital District, continues to thrive under this heritage of philanthropy.
Through continued generous community support, Tahoe Forest Health System is able to offer a wide variety of high-quality programs and services.
Tahoe Forest Hospital offers 24-hour emergency care, an ambulatory surgery center, intensive care, orthopedics and sports medicine, a medical/surgical unit, women and family center, home health and hospice programs, a cancer center, long term care center, children’s center, a health and sports performance center, as well as a variety of community health outreach programs.
