Reno was recently ranked in the top 100 cities to live. Reno is at the base of the Sierra Mountains just 30 minutes from the north shore of Lake Tahoe- known for crystal clear water and its 18 world class ski resorts. Reno offers four seasons, over 300 days of sunshine annually and endless outdoor recreational activities. The advantages of Nevada residency are well known, with no state imposed personal income tax the most notable. Our family-friendly community offers affordable living, a thriving culinary and art scene and quality education options. Reno’s location provides easy access to the Bay area, including San Francisco, Sacramento, the Napa Valley, and Sonoma.
Based in northern Nevada, Renown Health is an entire network of hospitals, urgent care centers, lab services, x-ray and imaging services, primary care doctors and dozens of medical specialties. Locally owned and a not-for-profit health system, we are the region's only Level II Trauma Center between Sacramento, California and Salt Lake City, Utah, treating 100,000+ ER and trauma patients annually. We are home to the area's first and only children's hospital and ER and the region's only Children's Miracle Network Hospital. As the first hospital on the west coast and fourth in the world to perform surgery with the da Vinci Xi, Renown Health is an advanced state of the art facility.
Two years later, Nevada achieved statehood and debuted the opening of Washoe County Hospital, later to be named Washoe Medical Center. It was then transferred in 1984 to the newly created Washoe Health System, a private, not-for-profit corporation.
Fast-forward to 2006 when we became Renown Health, a private, not-for-profit organization: though our name change was a significant decision, we’re proud to maintain the same level of dedication and commitment to providing the highest level of quality healthcare to our community.
