Tahoe Forest Health System #GivingTuesday Logo with heart and November 29

Save the Date: Tuesday, November 29th, 2022

The Tahoe Forest Health System Foundation is proud to be joining the #GivingTuesday movement again this year!

Mark your calendars! #GIVINGTUESDAY is a day of generosity designed to unleash the power of philanthropy and transform communities around the world! The Tahoe Forest Health System Foundation exists to enhance the services at our Hospital, and help achieve our organization’s vision of being the best mountain Healthcare System in the nation. Every dollar raised increases the quality of life for our community members, and helps guarantee ongoing access to local care services and programs.

This year, the Tahoe Forest Health System Foundation is supporting our incredible Emergency Department and the Level III Trauma Center

What is a Level III Trauma Center? A Level III Trauma Center is a specific Emergency Room program, overseen by the American College of Surgeons, designed to provide prompt assessment, resuscitation, surgery, intensive care, and the stabilization of injured patients.  As part of our #GivingTuesday efforts the Foundation is working to support the purchase of a GE Panda Baby Warmer for our Tahoe Forest Hospital Emergency Services Department. This specialized equipment greatly benefits our smallest patients. It provides many lifesaving features, including integrated blood oxygen level monitoring and easy access to everything required for emergency resuscitation therapy for high-risk infants. When you or a loved one experience an emergency, seconds count and distance matters. Your donations help ensure lifesaving care, right here in our neighborhood.

Help us Meet our Matching Goal by Making a Gift Today!

Our own employees deeply believe in Tahoe Forest’s important work, and many choose to give back by making generous gifts. They overwhelmingly voted to help purchase a GE Panda Baby Warmer for our ER’s smallest patients. With a $15,000, dollar-for-dollar, matching gift from our own employees, we are striving to raise an additional $15,000 for this lifesaving equipment. WILL YOU HELP US MEET OUR MATCH? No gift is too small – every dollar makes a difference!
