Notes from the Executive Director, Chris Kiser

Welcome to our Spring 2023 Issue of Elevations!

It started with a vision... and a promise.

Sixty years ago, to meet the health care needs of a rapidly growing region nestled in a picturesque Sierra Nevada setting, an hour from the nearest hospital, community leaders made a promise. A modern hospital would become a valuable, long-term resource to our community.


Furthering its mission of improving community health and well-being,
Barton Health is moving forward with its Barton Health Regional Expansion, which will broaden regional medical services.

Dr. Jeff Orr counts himself fortunate that when he was 7, his family came to Tahoe from Chicago so that his father, could do a sports medicine fellowship here. The family liked it here so much they decided to stay.

Q: Why is Barton expanding?
A: Barton Memorial Hospital in South Lake Tahoe will no longer meet California’s seismic safety regulations taking effect by 2030. The expansion will allow for updates to aging infrastructure while providing state-of-the-art technology and facilities at each campus location to meet the future of health care in our community.

The Barton Health Foundation’s publication—Elevations Magazine—was honored as a
“Merit Winner” for outstanding work in the 39th Annual Healthcare Advertising Awards.

The Healthcare Advertising Awards is the oldest, largest and most widely respected healthcare advertising awards competition.

More than 4,400 entries were reviewed by a panel of national judges, who awarded various designations based on materials displaying exceptional quality, creativity, and messaging effectiveness.

"Elevations Magazine is both informative and entertaining, aimed at keeping our many physicians, staff, board members, donors, and friends informed and up to date about the philanthropic mission of the Foundation,” said Chris Kiser, Executive Director of the
Barton Health Foundation. “We are proud to be recognized for excellence in quality and effective messaging, a critical component in gaining community support and inspiring philanthropy for the health of the community.”

For over 30 years, the Barton Health Foundation has been committed to improving the health of the residents and visitors of the Lake Tahoe region and to ensuring Barton Health has the tools and technology to provide the best healthcare possible. Since its inception in 1990, the Barton Health Foundation has raised more than $26 million to ensure state-of-the-art medical care is available right here in our community.
