A new family practice clinic will be opened by Renown Health in South Reno in the spring. Primary care services including a laboratory will be available. The group’s medical director is Dr. McCormack who has said they want the clinic to be inviting, relaxing and comfortable. The space will eventually add to the services available including a conference room for the staff and patients to talk..
Ar. McCormack also indicated they are waiting to see what happens with the repeal and replacement of Obamacare before proceeding further. The clinic will start with a staff of eleven but will be adding some additional staff. The clinic covers 10,000 square feet in the Summit mall.
The general contracting was done by Shaheen Beauchamp Builders and the design and architecture was performed by MBA Architects and lead by Eric Fong. Forbes Engineering handled the structural engineering and MSA Engineering handled the electrical, plumbing and mechanical. All of these companies have their base in Reno. More than a dozen contractors were required for the completion of the facility.
There are now twelve clinics for primary care owned by the healthcare provider. They are located all over the Reno-Sparks area including Fernley, Fallon and Carson City. An additional clinic has also been opened for primary care in the Caughlin Ranch area. Renown now has 12 primary care clinics throughout Reno-Sparks, Carson City, Fallon and Fernley. The healthcare provider also recently opened a primary care clinic in the Caughlin Ranch area.
Renown Health is the only not-for-profit, locally governed healthcare network located in Reno. This is incredibly important because it means all their earnings stay in Reno. These earnings are then reinvested into equipment, people and programs so the community is better served. There are no shareholders or owners living elsewhere to keep satisfied. Their purpose is serving the needs of the community and their patients. Since their money stays put the local citizens have a role in the way it is spent. There are over 150 members of the community who serve on the board for Renown or in an advisory capacity. Visit this site to learn more about Renown Health.
