Renown Health, with our partners, will inspire better health in our communities.

Giving Back to Our Community

For over 150 years, Renown Health has been taking care of generations of northern Nevadans as an integral part of our community.

As a not-for-profit organization, we are committed to service through organized and sustainable community benefit programs that provide:

  • Free and discounted care to those unable to afford healthcare
  • Services to improve community health and increase access to healthcare
  • Partnership and collaboration with others to address the health and well-being of the people in our communities

See our 2018-21 Community Health Needs Plan.
