Renown Health and Stanford Medicine are teaming up to give patients in Northern Nevada critical access to specialty care.
Hospital executives announced at a press conference that Renown patients will now have an easier time seeking specialized medical services like pediatric healthcare.
“We have kids in this community that are diagnosed with tumors,” said Renown executive Kirk Gillis. “We don’t have the type of physician expertise in this community to manage specialized brain tumors or lung tumors in children.”
For that reason, Gillis says that Stanford will provide expertise in areas like pediatric cancer and heart defects.
This new access will be granted to members of Hometown Health, Renown’s healthcare plan.
