Health Care

Eastern Plumas Health Care is a small, non-profit, critical access hospital district, providing comprehensive medical services to Plumas County since 1971. We operate a 9 bed acute care hospital at our main Portola campus, which includes a 24 hour, physician staffed, emergency room and ambulance service. In addition, four primary care medical clinics and a dental clinic offer residents a full spectrum of health care services in the Graeagle, Greenville, Loyalton, and Portola communities. There are also hospital-based Skilled Nursing Facilities in Portola and Loyalton. The hospital district serves over 10,000 permanent residents living in small communities scattered throughout Plumas and Sierra Counties. During the peak summer vacation months, that population almost doubles. In good weather, the commute to larger Reno and Truckee hospitals is 45 minutes. During the winter months, these roads are sometimes impassable, making EPHC one of the most vital services in our region. When necessary, critical care flight services can transport patients directly to Reno.
We also provide in-patient and out-patient surgery, diagnostic imaging, dietary, and respiratory services, hospice care, and visiting specialists.

Banner Lassen Medical Center in Susanville, Calif. originally opened in 1883 as Lassen County Hospital.

In 1994, Lutheran Health System assumed management responsibility for the hospital and purchased the hospital from St. Mary’s Hospital in 1999. That year, the Lutheran Health System merged with Samaritan Health and became Banner Health. Banner Health decided to build a new facility north of town and the new Banner Lassen Medical Center opened in May 2003.

A 25-bed, critical access hospital, Banner Lassen offers quality care, close to home. In addition to providing our patients with a safe, efficient and caring environment, Banner Lassen offers a wide range of programs and services to aid in prevention, diagnosis and treatment of illness. We offer private rooms and home-like birthing suites.
