Renown Health Opening New Clinic in South Reno

The expanding population of South Reno will soon have another option for health care as Renown Health opens its twelfth clinic in the region. The family health practice clinic will occupy three storefronts at The Summit Mall and will provide much needed services in the South Meadows area.

Patients entering clinic will find the atmosphere to be comfortable and inviting, as it was designed to feel like a living room. The facility will also include a conference room to allow patients a private space to meet with staff.

At present, the Summit Mall clinic has a staff of 11, although Renown may add an additional primary care physician and nurse practitioner. Primary health care services and a laboratory are offered, but the 10,000 square foot clinic has room to expand to offer more services in the future.

At least twelve Reno-based contractors were needed to convert the space, formerly occupied by a menswear store, into a medical facility. The project took more than three months to complete.

In 2016, Renown doctors and specialists delivered over 4,000 babies, performed more than 19,000 same-day surgeries, had nearly 700,000 patient visits, and performed more than two and a half million tests. The network includes hospitals, urgent care facilities, specialist services in health laboratories and imaging, in addition to a variety of specialists. Renown also operates a not-for profit insurance company called Hometown Health.

Renown Health is a locally-governed health network, with over 150 members of the community holding positions on Renown boards or serving in advisory roles. Since Renown is not-for-profit, all earnings are reinvested into the community. In 2016, more than $78 million were spent on community programs and health services, and $63 million were spent on capital improvements. In addition, Renown provides more than 12,000 direct and indirect local jobs, making it one of Northern Nevada’s largest employers.
