Renown Health has announced that they will be treating patients out of South Reno starting this spring when their new family practice clinic opens up at the Reno Summit Mall. The clinic will offer patients primary care services along with an in-house laboratory. There is room to consider adding more services at the South Reno clinic based on demand. There are already plans to add a conference room where staff can meet with their patients to talk about healthcare as needed.
Medical director for Renown Medical Group, Dr. McCormack, commented in a phone interview that the aim of the clinic is to create an inviting setting that will prompt patients to come in and seek medical are. He explained that they want the waiting room to look like an extension of their living room to make seeking medical aid a more comfortable experience.
When the South Reno Renown clinic opens it will be staffed with 11 people with the plan to add on another nurse practitioner and primary care physician. The clinic is spread across 10,000 square feet across three different empty storefronts. Dr. McCormack stated that as the population of Truckee Meadows continues to grow it is important to offer more access to primary care clinics in the region.
Renown Health is the only not-for-profit healthcare network located in Reno. This is important to note because all of the earnings of the major health network stay within the network and are placed back into programs to help improve health services and the health of the community they serve. Currently they have 11 primary care clinics open in the greater Reno area. Click here to know more.
In order to provide the best care to the communities that Renown Health serves, 150 community members sit on the Renown boards or hold advisory positions. The end result is a giant health network that is able to offer community members personalized heath care tailored to their demands and needs.
