Renown Health to Open Summit Mall Family Practice Clinic

South Reno residents can soon look forward to the opening of a family practice medical clinic at The Summit Mall, North Nevada Business Weekly reported. The clinic will be part of the Renown Health network.

In addition to primary care services, the Summit Mall clinic will offer laboratory services. According to Renown Medical Group’s Dr. McCormack, the clinic is designed to have the comfortable feeling of a living room. Its conference room provides a space for staff and patients to talk over health matters.

The clinic is projected to employ a staff of 11, with expansion possible in the future. An additional primary care physician and nurse practitioner are expected to be hired on.

Summit Mall’s new clinic will cover three storefronts, including the one vacated by clothier Jos. A. Bank when it relocated to Meadowood Mall. Carson City company Shaheen Beauchamp Builders LLC is working as the general contractor on the project, with Eric Fong of MBA Architects + Interior Design spearheading the architecture redesign. Forbes Engineering is handling the structural engineering. MSA Engineering Consultants will handle all electrical, plumbing, and mechanical engineering.

Renown Health is the largest non-profit health care network in the northern half of the state to be locally owned. The network is one of the largest employers in the region. Formerly called the Washoe Health Network, the company traces its origins back to 1862.

Since opening its first 40-bed hospital in 1876, Renown Health has gone on to serve as a pioneering medical center in Northern Nevada. It opened the region’s first pediatric hospital in the 1940s and performed the region’s first open-heart surgery in the 1970s. With more than 5,500 employees in the network, Renown Health continues to be an important primary health care resource in the lives of many Nevadans. Click here to know more.
