In 2015, Renown partnered with numerous agencies and non-profit organizations to bring important health initiatives into focus. Check out this video highlighting some of these meaningful partnerships.
Renown is working to improve the health and well-being of northern Nevada, but we’re not doing it alone. We’re partnering with other health care organizations, the University of Nevada School of Medicine, local government and private non-profits to set a course for better health.
Take a look at some of our partnerships in 2015 as we set the stage for similar initiatives in 2016 and beyond.
2015: A Year of Community Partnerships
- Sierra Pediatrics Blood and Cancer Consortium: Renown Health, Access to Healthcare, Carson Tahoe Hospital, Saint Mary’s Regional Medical Center and Washoe County formed a consortium to support a local, full-time pediatric oncologist for northern Nevada families with children who are facing cancers or blood disorders.
- Urban Roots: Take one vacant lot, a passionate farm-to-table charity, and viola! You have the new Renown-Urban Roots Farm, where more than 350 kids will receive on-site food education each year.
- Each One. Tell One.: With the RTC and Each One Tell One, we are creating awareness of dense breast tissue with a pink polka dot bus.
- Girls On The Run-Sierras: Renown and GOTR have substantially expanded health and self-esteem programs for girls in Title I elementary schools. Girl Power!
- Child Health Institute: In partnership with University of Nevada School of Medicine and area non-profits, we are working to improve the lives of kids in Washoe County.
- Truckee Meadows Healthy Communities: This dynamic cross-sector group includes Renown, the Washoe County Health District and many others seeking to create a culture of health in the Truckee Meadows.
- St. George’s University Medical School, Grenada: This new and innovative partnership brings medical students to Nevada for their clinical rotations and final year of training.
- Office For Community Faculty: This great new space, done in partnership with the University of Nevada School of Medicine, supports physicians in the community who are committed to supervising and training interns, residents and fellows.
We look forward to developing these and other partnerships in 2016.
