Group improves diagnosis, medical management and quality of life for patients.

If you are preparing for a surgical procedure, you have probably given a lot of thought to the education, training and experience of the surgeon performing the procedure. But you may not have thought much about the anesthesiologist or the importance of his or her expertise in your procedure — before, during, and after — to keep you safe and comfortable.

“As the region’s only not-for-profit integrated healthcare network and Trauma Center, we are trusted and chosen by patients as the #1 provider of inpatient care, including surgeries, for northern Nevada, Lake Tahoe and northeast California. To continue to serve the needs of hundreds of surgeons and thousands of patients with safe, high quality and effective anesthesia coverage, we now employ sixty anesthesiologists through our Department of Surgery through Renown Medical Group Anesthesiology, a new local practice providing services to patients in northern Nevada,” said Sy Johnson, MBA, President of Renown Health.

Patients served include those at Renown Regional Medical Center, the only Level II Trauma Center between Sacramento and Salt Lake City, and #1 Hospital in the State of Nevada in U.S. News and World Report Best Hospital Rankings for 2021. Physician anesthesiologists will also provide services to patients at Renown Children’s Hospital, the only children’s hospital in the region; Renown South Meadows Medical Center, named #1 Best Hospital for 2020 by U.S. News & World Report; and to patients at Renown Rehabilitation Hospital, northern Nevada’s only Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF)- accredited hospital, specializing in the treatment of brain injury, spinal cord injury and stroke.

Renown Health está integrado con la Facultad de Medicina de Reno de la University of Nevada, la primera facultad de medicina de Nevada, la cual tiene como propósito mejorar la salud de la comunidad al proporcionar un mayor acceso a la atención, prestar una atención médica innovadora, expandir la investigación clínica y capacitar a la próxima generación de médicos y profesionales de atención médica.
