According to an article published in the Business weekly on 13th March 2017, Renown health Clinic was planning to open a practice Clinic at the Summit Mall in South Reno. Dr. McCormack reported that the clinic was to begin with providing primary healthcare services and a laboratory and increases the services in future.
Dr. McCormack further reported that the clinic was also designed to provide a comfortable setting for their clients so that they felt like they were home. Amongst other services they were planning to offer included a conference room where the clinic staff and patients can talk and discuss healthcare matters. Dr. McCormack however, expressed fears of uncertainty in the healthcare industry due to the potential impact of President Donald Trump’s proposal of replacing Obamacare.
The Clinic was to get started with 11 staff and later add one more primary care physician and a nurse practitioner.
The clinic covers an adequate space of 10,000- square-foot. The general contractor was Shaheen Beauchamp Builders LLC. It was designed by Eric Fong of MBA Architects + Interior Design. Structural engineering was done by Forbes Engineering whereas Mechanical, plumbing and electrical engineering was completed by MSA Engineering consultants companies based in Reno. All the work was completed in February 2017.
Renown has been making a big push in primary care clinics. Further the need for more health care clinics was pushed by the Truckee Meadows; growing population, improved economy and greater access to health insurance facilities.
