Our Not-For-Profit Mission, In Action

A Thriving Community

Carson Tahoe Health is a not-for-profit healthcare system with a mission to enhance the health and well-being of the communities we serve. We seek to advance health equity, such that every single member of our community has the best possible chance of attaining optimum health and well-being.

Unpaid cost of Medicaid + Medicare + free and reduced-cost care for uninsured and underinsured.

To enhance access to healthcare, we provide Charity Care through our Financial Assistance policy, cover the unpaid costs of Medicaid, Medicare, and SCHIP programs, and provide free and reduced-cost care to uninsured and underinsured community members. We want everyone in our community to have access to the healthcare they deserve, even if they do not have the means to pay for it.

Community Health Improvement, Support Services, Education, and Partnerships

With community members as our stakeholders, we carefully steward our resources towards community initiatives and healthcare advancements that we know will have the biggest impact on our region’s most pressing needs. Those needs are abundant but so, too, are the number of people and organizations providing expertise, assistance, and innovative solutions. We know that the beautiful, healthy future we envision for our community will only be achieved when we partner with like-minded organizations to coordinate our efforts and share resources with the same community benefit in mind.

In 2020, Carson Tahoe welcomed 587 students, providing valuable training across multiple departments. The students, who hail from both Nevada and other states throughout the country, were given the opportunity to observe, support, and learn from our staff. All told, 35,220 staff hours were spent training these healthcare leaders of the future.

We encourage our leaders to be directly involved in their community as well. Many leaders and staff volunteer their time on community boards and councils, among other important causes. This includes organizations such as: Carson City Chamber of Commerce, Carson Rotary, Western Nevada Development District, Economic & Recovery Council for WNDD, Spirit of Hope, FISH, Great Basin Food Co-op, the Boys & Girls Club of Western Nevada, the Northern Regional Behavioral Health Policy Board, and the Business Council of Douglas County, and many more.
