Renown Health Opens New South Reno Clinic Location
Renown Health Group has announced they are opening a new family practice clinic in South Reno. The clinic will be located at The Summit Mall and will feature primary care services as well as a lab. As the clinic develops they expect to add additional medical services over time.The Medical Director of Renown Health, Dr. McCormack, said that the clinic was developed with the comfort of patients at the top of their minds. The waiting area has the look and feel of a living room with comfortable chairs and couches along with entertainment options. Additionally, the clinic was designed to be flexible so that they can add to it as needs develop in the South Reno community.
There is a great deal of uncertainty in the healthcare community with President Trump and Republican’s threatening to upend the industry and strip health care from 23 million people around the country. Due to this, Dr. McCormack indicated that he and his executive team are taking a wait and see approach before deciding what other services to offer at this location. In the meantime, the clinic will be staffed with 11 medical professionals at the start and they are looking to add one more doctor and nurse in the near future.
