This week, Renown Health announced the future closure of its Renown Skilled Nursing facility. Watch this video to learn more about how the healthcare system is committed to its residents and staff.
After careful consideration, Renown Health has made the decision to close its skilled nursing facility on Saturday, Dec. 15, in an ongoing effort to ensure the highest quality and most appropriate care for our growing population.
“The northern Nevada area is fortunate to have a number of forward-thinking, innovative skilled nursing facilities,”said Melodie Osborn, RN, Vice President, Transitional Care and Chief Nursing Officer. “Transitioning residents from the Renown Skilled Nursing facility will allow Renown to focus on delivering care through our hospitals, medical group and urgent care network, while keeping up with the tremendous growth our region is experiencing.”
The focus during the transition is to find new home for the 57 residents, so none of them will have a gap in service, even for a day.
“The quality, compassionate care offered at the Renown Skilled Nursing facility is due to the hard work and dedication of our employees,” said Chris Nicholas, Senior Administrator of Rehabilitation Services at Renown. “Our Human Resources team is working with employees to find them positions in Renown, or with other local skilled nursing centers who are currently recruiting staff.”
