Renown Health opens 12th Clinic

Thanks to a growing population, and greater access to health care and insurance, Renown Health is opening a brand new family practice clinic in The Summit Mall in South Reno. Covering three empty store fronts, including a former Jos. A Banks that moved, the clinic is 10,000 sq feet and will encompass primary care services, a laboratory, and conference room, with Renown already looking ahead to add more services to the location. This new installation marks the 12th clinic by Renown Health in Northern Nevada. Renown’s Medical Director, Dr. McCormack says that they had been making a big push to open more primary care clinics as more and more people come into the region.

Renown Health began its legacy all the way back in 1862 as a smallpox hospital, which quickly grew to service other needs, becoming the state’s first hospital in 1864 when Nevada first joined the union. Washoe became a not for profit health network in 1984, and changed its name to Renown Health in 2006. Now Renown Health is the largest health network, and only locally owned not for profit health network in the state. It is a nationally renowned healthcare leader and only Top 100 recognized integrated health network in the state of Nevada.

Renown Health is dedicated to providing quality healthcare to all patients, offering state of the art technology, modern facilities, and a commitment to excellence. The network employs over 6000 nurses, and is one of the largest employers in the state. Renown provides a network of hospitals, specialists like pediatrics and rehabilitation, lab services, and primary care for people across all northern Nevada. Renown boasts many partners in health, including Stanford Health Care, Stanford Children’s Health and Stanford Medicine. As a non-profit organization all of Renown’s earnings stay in the community, and a lack of shareholders to satisfy means Renown focuses on treating patients and serving the community.
