Renown Healthcare New Facility

Renown Health is a not-for-profit healthcare network based out of Nevada. Founded in 1862, the company employs over 5500 people. Facilities include three acute care hospitals, a children’s hospital, a rehabilitation hospital, skilled nursing facility, a medical group and urgent care network, and Hometown Health, which is the only locally owned not-for-profit insurance company. Anthony D. Slonim has been President and CEO since 2014.

The organization introduced the use of the country’s first angiography biplane, which is used to treat stroke victims. They are also the first hospital in Nevada to perform robotic surgery using the da vinci Surgical System S HD. An emergency room designed for children under the age of 18 is the only one in the area. They are a leader in quality healthcare.

Renown Health will be opening a new family practice at the Summit Mall in South Reno. With a staff of 11 people, the clinic will include primary care services, as well as a laboratory. The medical director of the organization says that the clinic is designed to look like a warm, inviting living room, providing a more comfortable setting for patients. The space will be adding additional services, and will also employ additional staff, including physicians and nurse practitioners. There will be a designated area where physicians can discuss health care issues with their patients. Click here to know more.

The general contractor assigned to the construction of this facility is Shaheen Beauchamp Builders, LLC. Eric Fong of MBA Architects + Interior Design is responsible for architecture and construction, structural engineering is provided by Forbes Engineering, and mechanical, plumbing, and electrical engineering is provided by MSA Engineering Consultants.

There is a need for additional healthcare in the area due to growing population, growing economy and better access to insurance. There are now 12 primary care clinics in the area owned by Renown.
