Renown Health is working towards opening a new clinic that will focus on families in the South Reno area this spring. They will be offering both primary care services to their clients as well as providing a laboratory for their testing. They have high hopes that this expansion will lead to an increase of their services later on as more of the area’s residents choose Renown as their primary care physicians.
Renown Health is currently the only locally governed healthcare network in Reno that is not-for-profit. This model has ensured that Renown Health has quickly become a client favorite, as they focus on reinvesting into programs and equipment that will directly help their community. This recent expansion is the newest step in their commitment to the Reno area.
The medical director, Dr. McCormack, recently explained that one of the focuses of this new clinic was to offer a more inviting setting for their patients. The organization made this decision based off of input from their community advisory board. This board is made up of small business, nonprofit organizations, healthcare and education providers, local government, public safety officials, and those that work in major industries around Reno. This committee has been crucial in offering the board of directors the insight they need to grow in the community.
The new clinic will be set in the Summit Mall due to the growing population in the Truckee Meadows’ as well as the improvements in the local economy. The community has seen more people coming into the area with many settling into the South Reno area. This new clinic will work to ensure that these newcomers have access to the medical care that they need.
The new Renown Health clinic will open with a staff of eleven. Renown is working on adding at one or more primary care physicians and at least one more nurse practitioner to the clinic. With this addition, Renown now has twelve primary care clinics throughout the state.
