The TFHS Team is a Work of Heart

Our Team is a work of heart. TFHS team member giving.

Together, our team members help advance TFHS’s vision of supporting stronger, healthier communities. When they share their charitable contributions to further advance the care they help provide, it sends a powerful message: they believe deeply in our Health System’s lifesaving work.

Each year around this time, we launch our annual Team Member Giving campaign. This is an internal fundraising initiative designed specifically for our growing team. With the TFHS staff’s giving and input, the Foundation has been able to purchase several pieces of advanced equipment through the years. Most recently, Team Member Giving funds helped provide a GE Panda Baby Warmer for the Tahoe Forest Hospital. Supporting lifesaving care for our smallest patients is crucial.

Hundreds of employees participate in the Foundation’s Team Member Giving Program. Read below to learn what inspired Denise Bowness, Clinical Manager of the TFHS Fitness Center, to become involved:

“It is important for me to participate in Team Member Giving! Tahoe Forest does so many great things for our community, and provides the ability to stay in our community without having to leave the area to receive great care. It makes me feel good to be a part of Tahoe Forest and this program. I really appreciate the opportunity to contribute.”

By sharing valued skills, professional dedication, and charitable gifts with the Health System, staff members like Denise help provide critical resources that advance care. This benefits our patients, their families, your loved ones, and other employees. We are extraordinarily grateful for our staff’s commitment to your care!
