Sierra Sun

With 2016 being an election year, the Sierra Sun is devoting time each week to conduct interviews with officials who work for the many public districts and government agencies representing Truckee and North Lake Tahoe.

This week, we feature a Q-and-A with Tahoe Forest Hospital District CEO Harry Weis.

Weis: I would describe our district as being very strong financially and clinically and becoming prepared for the innovations that are coming in health care. … Our finances were very strong at June 30, 2015, with a strong net income. I believe it was in the $2.5 million dollar range. … We’ve also just recently gone through a clean external audit, and our fiscal performance this fiscal year through the first eight months through February 29, 2016, is very strong, as well. We’re north of $8 million as of (that) eight month period.
