Renown Health, the largest nonprofit healthcare network in Northern Nevada, has opened a new family practice clinic in South Reno. This clinic, which is housed inside of The Summit Mall, will provide primary physician care. It is designed to be easily expandable not only in the services it provides but also in the layout of the clinic.
The new clinic features a waiting area that has the look and feel of a family’s living room with comfortable seating. It also has a conference room where patients can consult with the staff on their medical care. The clinic is staffed with 11 medical professionals but the leaders of the organization have plans to add at least one more doctor and another nurse in the near future. Click here to know more.
There is a lot of uncertainty going on right now in the healthcare industry as Republican’s say they want to tear up the Affordable Care Act and replace it with something else they haven’t adequately defined. The Medical Director of Renown Medical Group, Dr. McCormack, has said that the uncertain politics that has gone on in Washington D.C. has resulted in his company taking a wait and see approach before fully committing to any particular plan for this new family practice clinic as well as their other existing clinics. Once there is some certainty they have the capability of modifying what services they offer and how much staff they will have at the site.
Renown Health is the only nonprofit network providing medical services to the community of Reno, Nevada. Everything that they earn is put back into their network so that the community is better served. As they also don’t have to satisfy shareholders first like most businesses they are able to put the primary focus on the patients that they serve.
