South Reno at The Summit Mall is the new location of a family practice clinic of Renown Health. This location will provide primary care services and laboratory in the beginning and may add to the services in the future. According to the Renown Medical Group director Dr. McCormack, the clinic is designed to be comfortable and inviting. He said when patients enter they want them to feel at home and there is space to add more health services. The location has a conference room for the staff discuss patients health issues and they are planning on adding to the current staff of 11. The doctor said they plan to add at least one more doctor and a nurse practitioner to the current staff. The location is a 10,000 square foot clinic and it includes three storefronts.
Demolition for the new clinic was completed in November by Carson City general contractor Shaheen Beauchamp Builder LLC who was chosen for the project. Eric Fong did the architecture and design for the new location. Mr. Fong has an MBA in Architecture and Interior Design structural engineering from Forbes Engineering. The mechanical, plumbing and electrical engineering were done by the location by MSA Engineering Consultants of Reno.
Dr. McCormack said the location was chosen because Truckee Meadows has a growing population and improved economy with a need for better access to primary care clinics. Renown Health is a Reno locally governed not-for-profit healthcare network with all of the profits staying within the system. This allows it to be invested into programs and equipment to be of better service with the communities having a say in where it is spent. The company shareholders and owners are from within the state and the company’s goal is to provide medical service to local communities. Renown has over 150 community members serving on the board and in advisory capacities.
The healthcare company has partnered with Stanford Health Care, Stanford Children’s Health and Stanford Medicine to help advance healthcare, specialize in medical services and added resources to the local community.
