Tahoe Forest Health System
Tahoe Forest Hospital was founded on philanthropy and through continued generous community support, the regionís only health system is able to offer a wide variety of programs and services. In 1949 Tahoe Forest Hospital District was formed by the residents of our community, and is governed by a five person publicly elected board of directors.
