Continuing programs that provide critical services to populations in need.
“Renown is committed to improving the health of the community, which means more than just providing quality healthcare,” said Anthony Slonim, MD, DrPH, president and CEO, Renown Health. “It means going outside the hospital walls, offering programs and services that make a lasting difference in the health and well-being of families throughout our region. This can only be accomplished through collaboration with partners who share the vision of a healthier northern Nevada – partners like REMSA.”
In-home visits and/or follow-up calls assist patients in avoiding hospital readmission after they have been discharged from the hospital. During in-home visits, community paramedics reinforce healthcare provider discharge instructions and treatment plans, provide education specific to each patient’s health literacy level, and provide medication reconciliation and reminders of follow-up appointments.
The Nurse Health Line
A 24/7 dedicated call line staffed with specially trained nurse navigators. Residents and visitors, regardless of insurance status, can call with their non-emergency medical questions and concerns. The nurse navigator assesses the patient and recommends the appropriate level of care.
Ambulance Transport Alternative
Provides pathways of care other than transport to the emergency department for 9-1-1 patients. This includes transport of patients with low acuity medical conditions to urgent care centers and clinics for treatment, the transport of medically stable inebriated patients directly to the detoxification center, and the transport of medically stable psychiatric patients directly to mental health hospital for medical clearance and admission.
