Company Overview Visit sierrahealth.net website
Sierra Health Services Company (SHSC) is one of the longest-standing providers of health care in the West, and its business philosophy remains as dedicated as ever to ensuring that those who need medical attention get it. Sierra has been serving Nevada since 1976 and provides a wide variety of services ranging from complex healthcare protocols such as organ transplants and trauma initiatives to more routine procedures such as laparoscopic surgery.
Sierra Health Services Company was founded by Charles B. Johnson on April 15th, 1868 with only $8 and an old burro named Blackie. It began as a small clinic near Virginia City, Nevada during a time when mining camps were springing up across the state - most notably from Gold Rush deposits at Sutter's Creek in 1848. Johnson, an entrepreneur at heart, began serving miners who worked surrounding the camps and who were often left without proper medical attention.
