Ways to Give

Eastern Plumas Health Care offers the only emergency services and acute care hospital in Eastern Plumas and Sierra Counties. EPHC is essential to the physical health of our residents and the economic health of our communities. Your contribution helps keep healthcare alive and well in Eastern Plumas County. We need your help now, more than ever.

Donations through EPHC's Foundation support hospital operations and the purchase of essential equipment, such as our digital mammography unit and digital CT scanner, which enhance our ability to offer the best quality screenings and results reporting possible. It is the Foundation's ongoing mission to provide financial and goodwill support for EPHC and to support health care in the communities we serve.

Eastern Plumas Health Care Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation. All donations to Eastern Plumas Health Care are tax deductible. For more information about us, or to make a cash, check, or credit card donation, please contact Alanna at 530.832.6564, or alwilson@ephc.org.

Volunteer with our Hospital Auxiliary
For over fifty years, Eastern Plumas Health Care's Auxiliary has dedicated itself to improving healthcare in our community. Its primary volunteer focus is the Nifty Thrifty, the thrift store located at 116 Commercial Street in Portola. Nifty Thrifty's reputation for cleanliness and quality goods makes it essential to the Auxiliary's fundraising efforts. Over its lifetime, the Auxiliary has contributed close to $2 million to EPHC. Donations include an ambulance-to-emergency room EKG transmission system, a digital dental x-ray camera, colonoscopy equipment, and hydraulic gurneys. Other contributions include major contributions towards the purchase of the Electronic Medical Record system, the digital mammography machine, and ultrasound equipment.

In addition to purchasing equipment for EPHC's hospital and clinics, Auxiliary activities include organizing blood drives, providing scholarships to EPHC staff members who are pursuing advanced degrees in their fields, and assisting with hospital outreach events such as EPHC's Annual Health Fair.

For more information or to volunteer, contact the Nifty Thrifty at 832-5967.

EPHC's Dr. Barnett Grier and Debra Ledwig help Annie Tate celebrate her birthday. Annie worked for the hospital in Portola for nearly 50 years. She exemplifies what it means to give, through her work with the hospital Auxiliary, personal donations, and the establishment of Annie's Fund, a voluntary payroll deduction program that allows employees to make a tax-deductible donation to our building fund.

The 2010 and 2011 Tournaments raised money for digital mammography equipment, allowing patients to receive their results rapidly and providing easy comparison of current to prior screenings.
