Carson Tahoe Health

The 300,000 sq. ft. Carson Tahoe Health opened in December 2005 on an 80-acre medical campus that includes state-of-the-art facilities including the Cancer Center and Sierra Surgery & Imaging. The hospital is a 128-bed, community-based health care facility. CTH has 138 private patient rooms, 18 emergency room bays, and a rooftop helipad. With over 50 years of experience, Carson Tahoe Health is dedicated to providing quality health care.

The Carson Rehabilitation Center is a full-service facility offering comprehensive rehabilitation services, physical, speech and occupational therapy, and a fully equipped gymnasium.

CTH employs over 185 physicians representing 25 specialties, and has emphasized medical staff recruitment and retention in order to provide quality care to the community. Over the past few years, Carson Tahoe Health has expanded service lines in oncology, cardiology, radiology, and more.

The regional Cancer Center opened in early November 2006 and is the only center of its kind in Northern Nevada offering complete cancer services under one roof. The fully-furnished 15-unit Merrimer Cottages offer a home away from home for those living in the rural communities.

Pet Health Care

Residents of Carson City enjoy their pets and want good care for them as well. There is excellent veterinary care for large and small animals.

Dogs must be licensed.
