In the early 1990s, the high demand for medical services in the Carson Valley resulted in a plan to provide these much needed services to the area. That plan was Carson Valley Medical Center (CVMC).
CVMC opened its doors in December 1993. The medical center brought primary care, family and internal medicine physicians, as well as outpatient services and an urgent care together under one roof. The outpatient services covered a variety of areas such as laboratory, physical therapy, pharmacy and medical imaging. The facility also housed a number of specialists including orthopedics, podiatry, gynecology, urology and cardiology. Soon after the first phase was complete, talk of beginning the second phase began.
Completed in 1995, the second phase of the project brought an outpatient surgery center, replaced the Urgent Care with a 24-hour Emergency Room, and added rehabilitation therapy to the CVMC. These services provided the residents of Carson Valley an opportunity to stay close to home for high quality medical care, offering a great assortment of diagnostic tests, lab services and ambulatory surgery, a great improvement but still no inpatient hospitalization.
In 2004, the Critical Access Hospital opened with 15 Acute Care beds. Topaz Ranch Medical Clinic opened in 2006, serving the primary care needs of residents in Topaz Ranch Estates, Wellington, Smith Valley, Yerington, Coleville and the surrounding areas. In 2007, CVMC expanded its hospital to include an ICU. A listing of services offered at CVMC can be found here.
In 2008, Job's Peak Internal Medicine & Family Practice and Minden Family Medicine & Complete Care, and Job's Peak General Surgery joined CVMC. The following year, CVMC Senior Care was opened to provide specialized primary care services to patients over 65.
CVMC responded to a great need in the community by opening Vitality for Life in 2010. Vitality for Life offers mental health and wellness services to patients over 65.
In 2012, Alpine Medical joined CVMC, thus expanding the access for patients of the Carson Valley to the quality care provided by CVMC.
In 2014, CVMC opened its CVMC at Ironwood building in Minden, which houses urgent care, primary care and occupational health services.
2017 marked a year of expansion for CVMC's primary care offerings as new providers were added to Ironwood Primary Care, Minden Family Medicine, Jobs Peak Internal Medicine & Family Practice and CVMC Senior Care. Alpine Medical closed its doors in 2018 as Dr. Steven Brown moved out of the area following 25 years serving the Carson Valley community.
Today, CVMC has a reputation as the quality, compassionate local healthcare provider in Carson Valley, bringing the community a hospital, surgery center, 24-hour emergency room, advanced diagnostic services, and physician offices/clinics throughout the area.
