Health care company Renown Health is extending their reach into the South Reno area of Nevada by opening a new family practice clinic in Summit Mall in Reno. The new clinic will offer primary care services as well as a laboratory initially and may add a conference room and additional services going forward. The facility will be warm, inviting and comfortable so people seeking treatment can feel at home. And it will have the flexibility to possibly add another primary care physician and nurse practitioner as needed.
The clinic is 10,000-square-feet in size. It will draw on the services of Carson City based commercial general contractor Shaheen Beauchamp Builders LLC with MBA Architects + Interior Design’s Eric Fong providing architecture, Forbes Engineering doing the structural engineering and MSA Engineering Consultants in charge of completing the plumbing, electrical and mechanical engineering. Those companies are all based in Reno and more than 12 local contractors will also be involved.
They finished the demolition in November and the electrical, plumbing and interior finishes were completed in February. The improved economy, growing population and better access to health insurance in Truckee Meadows and South Reno created the need for the new facility. Renown Health is a nonprofit health care organization founded in 1862 in Washoe Valley, Nevada. Formally known as Washoe Health System, the name was changed to Renown Health in 2006. The company now has its headquarters in Reno. It has 5,500 employees and runs 12 primary care clinics in Fernley, Carson City and the Reno-Sparks area.
The company has a pediatrics unit and a heart care unit where the region’s first pacemaker implantation and open-heart surgery were performed. They also have Northern Nevada’s first cancer treatment center and a residency program from the University of Nevada School of Medicine. The hospital does brain fMRI research, is the sole Level II Trauma Center in the region, runs the Renown Pregnancy Center and has an innovative Healing Art Program. To know more click here
