The Carson Tahoe Women’s Health Institute, a free education and information hub located on the Carson Tahoe Medical Campus, was developed to meet the various health needs of women of all ages.  The center opened to the public on May 12, 2011 at 1470 Medical Parkway, Suite 250 in Carson City, Nevada.

“Focusing on women and their unique care path is our mission,” said Cheri Glockner, Carson Tahoe Director of Development.  “Being healthy and staying healthy takes work and many times women will forego their own health to look after their family.  Our mission is to help women find useful, timely information and assist them in navigating available programs and services while even providing physician referrals when appropriate.  In order to help save time our service is available in-person, by phone or on-line, in fact, the virtual component is especially helpful.”

The Women’s Health Institute is a 2,500 square-foot dedicated space, overlooking the gorgeous Eagle Valley. The beautifully appointed space includes comfortable classroom areas for physician-led classes and seminars, private consultation rooms and roomy computer workstations.  With a full-time Women’s Health Navigator, a well stocked lending library, health and wellness analysis tools and comprehensive on-line assessments, the Women’s Health Institute is available Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. or online at www.carsontahoewomen.com.
