Renown Health is opening a new family practice clinic in South Reno’s Summit Mall this spring. The facility will provide a laboratory and primary medical services, and more services will likely be added in the future. Renown Medical Group director Dr. McCormack stated during a phone interview with NNBW that the new clinic is designed to be more comfortable and inviting for patients. He shares that the Renown team wanted the new facility to look like a living room, so that patients will feel at home.
The clinic space is also equipped to offer additional services and amenities, such as a conference room where medical staff and patients can meet to discuss diagnoses and treatment plans.
Additional services were discussed by the Renown group, but Dr. McCormack states that the team will likely wait to see how the healthcare market is changing before adding new features. The doctor also shared that she knows there is so uncertainty in healthcare due to the impact of President Trump’s administrative proposals and his desire to eliminate Obamacare.
The new South Reno clinic has a staff of 11, and Renown is considering adding another primary care physician and a practitioner. The clinic is 100,000 square feet and takes up three vacant storefronts, including the space that was once home to menswear retailer Jos. A Bank. The store has since relocated to the Meadowood Mall. The contractor for the project was Shaheen Beauchamp Builders LLC. The company is based in Carson City. Design and architecture for the new clinic was done by Eric Fong of MBA Architects + Interior Design, and Forbes Engineering took care of the structural engineering. All plumbing, electrical and mechanical engineering was performed by MSA Engineering Consultants. All the company who contributed to the South Reno Renown Clinic project are based in Reno.
Dr. McCormack is very happy with the completion of the South Reno clinic, and states that Renown has been looking for ways to make a huge impact in the community by providing a quality primary health clinic. She shares that as more people move to the area, they are settling in Spanish Springs or South Reno, which means the new Renown clinic is in an ideal location.
With the addition of the South Reno clinic, Renown now has 12 primary care clinics in Carson City, Fallon, Reno-Sparks and Fernley. A new location has also recently opened in the Caughlin Ranch area.
