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.
