Renown Health

Northern Nevada’s largest not-for-profit healthcare provider is opening up a clinic in South Reno. The Summit Mall is all set to host a new family practise clinic from Renown Health, which will provide primary healthcare services upon opening and and has the facilities to provide additional services in the future. These future plans could include things like a conference room so that staff can communicate with patients on healthcare matters, and otherwise there are a number of possibilities but the folks at Renown want to wait and see what the future of the healthcare industry holds before committing to additional services – the potential repeal of the ACA could disrupt the US healthcare industry, and not necessarily in a good way. The space itself was designed to provide a comfortable setting that’s imitative of a home living room, so that customers can walk in and feel completely comfortable in it. Spread over three formerly vacant storefronts in the mall, the 10,000 foot clinic will start out with eleven staff members, but Renown is looking for one more physician and one more nurse practitioner for the facility so that it can better serve patients’ needs.

With twelve healthcare clinics throughout northwestern Nevada, Renown is becoming a regional leader in primary healthcare clinics and they’ve recently opened another primary care clinic in the Caughlin Ranch area as well. As Reno’s only not-for-profit, locally-governed healthcare provider, Renown Health ensures that all of its earnings stay local so that they can be put towards important things like investing in their programs and services rather than going somewhere else or lining the administration’s pockets. This puts them in a unique position to fully serve the local community rather than using profits as a primary motivation – great news for the local community, since accessing quality healthcare is an important need that often goes unfulfilled.

Doctor Sergio Cortes Was One Of The First Physicians To Sound The Alarm On The Zika Virus And Microcephaly

Brazilian Doctor Sergio Cortes is an expert when it comes to responding to health emergencies. Dr. Cortes was a State Health Secretary of Rio de Janeiro for seven years, so he was on call night and day. He left that position in 2013, but not before he was called to the flood stricken area of Xerém, Duque de Caxias to determine if there would be a major outbreak of dengue in that area. The streets and homes of Xerém were flooded, and there was debris and waste piling up across the town. The dengue virus is one of the viruses carried by the Aedes aegypti mosquito. Brazil has been plagued by a series of dengue outbreaks through the years so Dr. Cortes knew what had to be done in Xerém to prevent another outbreak.

The Aedes aegypti mosquito is a breeding machine. That species doesn’t need much water to lay eggs, and Xerém was filled with potential mosquito breeding grounds. Dr. Cortes and his medical team disinfected water and delivered 10,000 bottles of sodium hypochlorite. Bottle water was in short supply, so the team asked for more bottled water donations as well.

But one of the biggest challenges Dr. Cortes would have to face was the May 2015 Zika virus outbreak. When the news of the outbreak was first reported, Dr. Cortes was performing his duties as Chief Medical Officer and Executive Director of Rede D’Or São Luiz in Rio de Janeiro. Cortes quickly reacted to the emergency in the Northeastern region of Brazil. What alarmed Dr. Cortes was the number of microcephaly cases that were being reported in the same region. Microcephaly causes shrunken skulls in newborns. Microcephaly babies also have underdeveloped brains. Dr. Cortes knew that microcephaly was usually the result of alcohol abuse or a chromosome disorder in pregnant women, according to a post on his LinkedIn page.

Dr. Cortes and his medical team noticed the babies born in the Zika virus outbreak region had excess skin on their heads and calcified patches that were squeezing their brains. In a typical year that same area of Brazil might report one case of microcephaly a month, but after the Zike outbreak dozens of cases were being reported by local doctors.

It didn’t take long for Dr. Cortes and the emergency team of medical professions to see there was a definite link between Zika and microcephaly. Dr Cortes tweeted that research labs have confirmed that theory.

Dr. Cortes works as the State Health Secretary of Rio de Janeiro and he is a member of the national Institute of Traumatology and Orthopedics in the Brazilian Confederation of Volley. Dr. Cortes is also a well known Harvard business school graduate.

Many individuals have heard of Dr. Cortes because of the many investigations that he has done on health matters. He has also written many articles that speak of his findings in orthopedics and also that give information to those individuals that are interested in finding ways to prevent and relieve medical problems. Dr. Cortes is an individual that not only enjoys being a doctor, but he has general concern for the safety and well-being of his patients and for individuals around the world. He is active on the social media, and he can be followed on twitter and linkedin.
Dr. Cortes did an interview with Noticias R7 in which he talked about how to differentiate the symptoms of the Dengue virus and
Zika virus. These two viruses are both transmitted by mosquitoes. Even though the symptoms of these two viruses are very similar, there are some ways to differentiate between the two. The things that these two viruses have in common are body aches and high fevers. It is very important to be able to tell the difference between these two diseases. Dengue is the first virus that he compared to the other. Dengue is categorized by muscle pain along with pain behind the eyes. The virus is categorized by itching and red eyes as well.

Regardless of if an individual is suffering from either virus, it is important for them to get medical care as soon as they realize that the symptoms could possibly point to one of these diseases. Dr. Cortes is involved in numerous studies to see if it is possible for an individual to become ill with both viruses at the same time.  There are many scientists that are involved in the creation of a vaccine that is hoped to prevent Dengue fever, and there are continued studies being done to see if it is possible to come up with a vaccine that can also prevent Chikungunya as well.
