Health & Wellness Institute
Here at Carson Tahoe, we like to think one of the best ways to treat patients is to care for them before they even get sick. That’s why we offer educational resources, medical information and proactive wellness solutions to the place we call home. Whether it’s planning for your next child, learning more about nutritional information for your family, joining others in quitting smoking, or simply getting a routine health screening, we’re dedicated to keeping our community healthy and educated.
At the Carson Tahoe Health and Wellness Institute (HWI), we pride ourselves on our commitment to the health and well being of the communities we serve. The HWI offers personalized health navigation for people of all ages. With this service, one can be guided through the healthcare process with the help of a navigator that has experience and can research those tough to understand topics. Additionally, the HWI proudly offers multiple ways people can stay educated, participate in healthy activities and receive preventative screenings throughout the year. Please call or email us with any questions or comments.
