2018 CVMC Community Wellness Program

Carson Valley Medical Center's vision is to strengthen our community by providing accessible, affordable, high-quality healthcare to all.

Hand-in-hand with that vision, we have constructed an annual Community Wellness Program focused on helping members of our community improve their health through affordable wellness screenings, health education courses and resources and youth- and senior-specific programs.

Douglas County ranks seventh out of 17 counties in Nevada in Quality of Life when it comes to self-reported poor or fair health. Our hope is that this program will help lead to an improvement in that ranking in the coming years.

Some of the events, courses and benefits available to the community include:
