A Note from Karli Epstein, Executive Director

Karli Epsein, executive director

I hope you all are enjoying your summer so far and are staying happy and healthy!

As you all are aware, 2021 continues to be an incredibly challenging year for our Hospital and community. We remain grateful every day for the community support, and please know that we remain here for you and your families. Free COVID-19 testing is now available in Truckee through Placer County Public Health. It is not necessary to have symptoms; however, pre-registration is required and can be done at https://lhi.care/covidtesting or by calling 888-634-1123. The Tahoe Forest Gateway Vaccine Clinic is now offering vaccines Tuesday through Fridays; please visit https://myturn.ca.gov/ to schedule. Walk-in appointments are also welcome.

The Foundation Board and team is dedicated to continue to work towards our mission of providing and expanding healthcare services to our local community. Our goal is to raise philanthropic funds to support lifesaving programs, equipment, and state of the art technology that would be difficult for our Hospital to procure without our help. We are thrilled to announce that we will be supporting the 3T MRI project at Tahoe Forest. Please continue reading the newsletter for more information about what this project and technology means to our community. Hint, it is a BIG deal!

Please rest assured that 100% of every gift the Foundation receives goes directly to support lifesaving programs, services, and state of the art technology. Aside from our family and friends, there is no greater gift than timely access to great healthcare. We are reminded of this every day. Thank you for helping to ensure that the North Lake Tahoe and Truckee region will have high quality healthcare for generations to come.

We remain immensely grateful for the continued support of our community. We never take the trust you put in us for granted.

Best Wishes and with Much Gratitude,

Karli Epstein
