Health and Social Services

There is evidence of social and health services available; in town there is one hospital, Tahoe Forest Hospital. TFH provides the town with quality inpatient and emergency services.

Recently, the hospital received grants to develop and build a cancer center to help facilitate and treat those patients who reside in Truckee that are diagnosed cancer.

The clinic that I work in, is a double specialty clinic with emphasis on family practice and urgent care. Truckee Tahoe medical group was provided healthcare services the town's residents since 1959.
