Built to handle 15,000 visits a year, the Emergency Department at Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital now sees over 35,000 patients annually. This much-needed transformation will provide vital improvements aimed at creating an expedient, thorough and safe experience for patients and their loved ones.

Gifts to SNMHF’s Emergency Department campaign have the ability to touch over 75,000 local individuals who will likely need emergency services for themselves or a loved one at some point in their lives. SNMHF has currently raised 75% of its $2 million goal.
