Open Clinics & Hospital Access

Your health is our number one priority - all aspects of your health. Please do not delay seeking treatment for urgent medical concerns. Postponing care can cause a condition to worsen or become a preventable emergency.

Clinics & Outpatient Services Now Open

Our hospitals, clinics, and outpatient services are SAFE and OPEN. Please do not delay seeking treatment for urgent medical concerns. We are screening all patients on arrival and requiring masks and social distancing inside our facilities. So if you do need to visit us, you can be assured our strict safety protocols will keep you safe.

View our directory for a full list of providers. To schedule an appointment with any provider or service, please call our system-wide scheduling line at (530) 582-6205.

If you are experiencing an urgent or life-threatening emergency, please go to the nearest Emergency Department or Urgent Care clinic immediately.

Patient Safety

Our top priority is the safety of our patients and our staff. As we begin reopening, we will be implementing an organized screening process for patients in all areas of service, with prompts for social distancing. All patients and hospital staff will wear masks for everyone’s protection, and regular hand washing will be strongly encouraged. 

While we currently have a good supply of personal protective equipment (PPE), we’ll be evaluating our inventory on a daily basis to keep our levels high enough for both our staff members and patients. We’ll also continue to monitor and communicate directly with officials at the county and state level as we continue to evaluate our actions each week and adjust our plans as necessary. 

Limited Visitation

We understand the importance of our in-hospital patients having the support of friends and family, but at this time due to COVID-19 concerns, we are limiting visitors. Phone calls are encouraged instead to patients at Tahoe Forest and Incline Village Community hospitals.

Please do not visit the hospital if you have a cough, respiratory condition, fever, sore throat, shortness of breath or gastrointestinal symptoms.

Visitors and patients will be greeted and screened before entering the facilities by answering a series of questions about recent symptoms of respiratory or influenza-like illness to ensure the safety of our patients, staff and community. Our clinic staff will ask additional questions to screen and triage potential respiratory illnesses at the time of scheduling and check-in at our clinic locations. If you are experiencing respiratory symptoms (shortness of breath, coughing), please make the clinic staff aware.

Controlled Access

The main entrance and emergency room entrance at Tahoe Forest Hospital will be the only way for the public to enter the facility. For Incline Village Community Hospital (IVCH) the emergency room entrance is the only open entrance for all services inside IVCH.

Please note the Pine Street Café is closed until further notice, and some health and wellness group classes and events are cancelled or may be offered virtually until further notice. Please check the Center for Health Calendar for details.
