Renown Health:One of Reno Nevada’s top Hospitals

One of Reno Nevada’s top hospitals and urgent care centers, Renown Health will get a new family practice clinic underway to deliver primary care services in South Reno. The clinic, located at The Summit Mall, will also make a laboratory available with the likelihood of developing future services.

Initially staffed with 11, the clinic plans to add no less than one more primary care physician and one more nurse practitioner. The 10,000 square foot clinic was set up to put together a relaxing and comfortable atmosphere for its patients.

Dr. McCormack, medical director of Renown Medical Group, commented in a Northern Nevada Business Weekly story, that the space will also be adaptable to include services such as a conference room where staff can take part in conversations with patients. She called attention to the growing population in the area, considerable access to health insurance and the better economy as having boosted the demand for more primary care clinics in the region.

According to Dr. McCormack, the project was completed by companies that are all based in Reno. For example, Shaheen Beauchamp Builders was selected as the general contractor and Eric Fong of MBA Architects + Interior Design carried out the architecture and design. In addition, MSA Engineering Consultants accomplished the mechanical, plumbing and electrical engineering work while an additional dozen local contractors were employed to assist in finishing the work.

Renown Health, which has given assistance to the healthcare needs of Northern Nevada for more than 140 years, is the largest locally owned not-for-profit healthcare network in Northern Nevada. Originally known as the Washoe Health System, Renown Health now has 12 primary care clinics throughout the Reno area and recently opened a primary care clinic in the Caughlin Ranch area.

It is also one of Northern Nevada’s largest employers with more than 5,000 employees. Renown Health is the only Top 100 recognized integrated health networks in Nevada.
