Volunteer Opportunities - Health System

Volunteering can be very rewarding, especially at Tahoe Forest Hospital System.

Tahoe Forest Hospital System depends on loyal volunteers.

The volunteer programs at Tahoe Forest Hospital and Incline Village Community Hospital are to provide non-medical volunteer services to our patients, families and hospital staff. They provide service to the health system and to the community.

Please note: due to COVID-19, many of the volunteer opportunities at Tahoe Forest Hospital, including the Gift Tree, Hospice, the Hospice Thrift Stores, Pet Assisted Therapy, and Pastoral Care have been placed on hold, and we are not accepting new volunteer applications at this time. Please email VolunteerServices@TFHD.com with any questions.

Pet Assisted Therapy

Please note: This program is on hold until further notice.

The Humane Society of Truckee-Tahoe's (HSTT) Pet Assisted Therapy (PAT) program involves certified HSTT volunteers and their companion animals visiting at the Tahoe Forest Hospital's Extended Care Center and med/surg (inpatient) department, and other various Tahoe Forest Hospital programs including hospice, in-home health care and the Children's Center. HSTT volunteers and their pets touch the lives of many people (residents, patients, family, and staff) during their visits.

Volunteers and their pets must complete a variety of "testing" in order to be certified to participate in this program. Once certified, volunteers must commit to visiting a minimum of two times per month in one or more of TFH's programs.
