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.

Incline Village Community Hospital Auxiliary
The North Lake Tahoe Community Health Care Auxiliary (NLTCHCA) is a nonprofit corporation made up of dedicated volunteers who give their time and financial resources to help others. It is an integral part of Incline Village Community Hospital. Members of the hospital auxiliary raise funds to purchase of specialized medical equipment, to help improve the quality of care our hospital patients receive, to fund scholarships for students entering the health care field, and for other health care needs within the community.
The auxiliary also operates a year-round gift shop with an all-volunteer staff on the first floor of the Incline Village Community Hospital.

Pet Assisted Therapy
Please note: Due to COVID-19 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.
