A vision to be the best,

a need to serve the community

The Gene Upshaw Memorial Tahoe Forest Cancer Center offers a patient focused program offered by Tahoe Forest Health System, and provides the most current medical oncology services across the continuum of care.

In order to meet the needs of our growing and changing community, we need your support. Our goal is that the Community for Cancer Care Endowment will help the Gene Upshaw Memorial Tahoe Forest Cancer Center create a national model for rural cancer care, evidenced by the high quality and diversity of its programs and clinical services.

In 2006, a general obligation bond for Tahoe Forest Hospital District was passed by a 72% super majority vote. This outcome demonstrated strong community support for improved local healthcare facilities to meet future and current needs.
