The Gene Upshaw Memorial Tahoe Forest Cancer Center, located in Truckee, California, is committed to providing the highest quality cancer treatment and care to our patients. We strive to offer the most current cancer diagnostic therapeutic modalities, creating a Model for Rural Cancer Care.

With equipment and technology on par with urban health systems, including Varian TrueBeam radiation therapy, the Gene Upshaw Memorial Tahoe Forest Cancer Center offers medical evaluation, diagnosis and treatment, PET/CT scan, CT scan, ultrasound, digital mammography, chemotherapy infusion, pharmacy and lab, in addition to a comprehensive physical therapy, family support program and psychosocial services program.
