Are you tired of waiting weeks or months to get into the doctor? Most people in Northern Nevada are feeling the growing pains of more and more people moving here. With an influx of new residents from out of state, people are trying to find a way to shorten their wait time at the doctor. Fortunately, a few local insurance companies are solving the problem with new facilities around town. Hometown Health is a local insurance company owned by Renown. Prominence Health Plan is a local insurance company owned by UHS, a large company who also owns Northern Nevada Medical Center. As the only two local health insurance companies in Northern Nevada, they are adding new facilities to reduce the wait time at the doctor.
Enrolling in one of Hometown Health’s or Prominence Health Plan’s policies can save you time and money when receiving health care. To see if you qualify for their coverage, please give us a call. Our brokers will assess your eligibility. This article discusses the new facilities in the area.
New Renown Urgent Care
In Washoe County, we have seen many new Renown facilities around town. Renown is now looking to expand their facilities in the Carson City and Douglas County region. Renown recently opened a new Urgent Care in North Carson to help patients reduce the wait time at the doctor. However, like any other urgent care this facility does not treat Emergency Situations. Therefore If you are dealing with a true Emergency, please visit the nearest Emergency Room.
The hours of operation for the new Renown Urgent Care are:
Mon-Fri – 8am – 7pm
Sat-Sun – 9am- 5pm
This facility is located at:
2814 N Carson St Suite 101
Carson City, NV 89704

Prominence Freestanding Emergency Room
Over by the Walmart on McCarran in Northwest Reno, there is a new Freestanding Emergency Room. This Freestanding Emergency Room is in partnership with Northern Nevada Medical Center and owned by UHS.

Also they are equipped to treat patients with minor illnesses, injuries, and those who require a higher level of emergency care. This Freestanding Facility will provide medical treatment for the following conditions:
- Abdominal pain
- Chest Pain
- Respiratory distress
- Allergic reactions
- Broken bones
- Serious infections
Furthermore, there are 6 treatment rooms, 24/7 lab services, and diagnostic imaging (x-rays, CT, and Ultrasound). Also, If you are in pain or experiencing one of the conditions listed above, you can reduce the wait time at the doctor by visiting the new Freestanding Emergency Room!
