Renown Health Expands
Renown Health, the highly respected hospital, is in the process of expanding in Reno. They will be opening a family practice office in the south part of town in the spring of 2017. For now, the facility will offer primary health care along with lab services for patients. One of the aims is to create a more relaxed and friendly atmosphere for the place. This will be achieved by giving the center a more home like look and feel. In addition, the area that has been chosen has potential to add more room and services in the future. However, as far as future services are concerned it will depend on how President Trump handles the present health care system to learn more: https://www.linkedin.com/company/renown-health click here.
History of Renown Health Care
Renown Health career has a very interesting and colorful history. It was originally started way back in 1862, Reno, Nevada and it was the first establishment of its kind in Nevada. In its early years, it went by the name Washoe Health System, which it kept up until recently as 2006. The original reason behind establishing this institution was to help with the fight against smallpox, which took place in the Reno area back then. The initial size of the compound was 40 acres and by 1875 the hospital had 40 beds.
The hospital remained mostly unchanged until 1949 when it added a pediatrics department. From there slowly more and more disciplines such as cardiology, health cancer treatment, brain MRI scanning, and surgery were added. Perhaps what makes this institution different from most other best hospitals services is that it is a locally owned non-profit organization.
The benefits of this are that all decisions are made locally, without having to answer to another master located somewhere else, who doesn’t have the local populations best interest in mind. Needless to say, this translates to better care and service for patients who seek medical help at Renown Health. Today, the institution employees around 6500 people and has a residency program in partnership with the University of Nevada.
