Reno, Nevada (February 28, 2023) – A successful multi-year urgent care partnership with Carbon Health has led to more access and exceptional care for thousands of residents, momentum that Saint Mary’s is thrilled to continue as the sole owner and operator of four urgent care clinics in the Reno-Sparks area.

“Saint Mary’s provides a robust line of services that fulfill many critical needs for our community members,” said Derrick Glum, CEO of Saint Mary’s Health Network. “This expansion allows for the continued provision of a key service to the community, increases access for many, and reinforces our continued plans for growth and development into 2023 and beyond.”

Saint Mary’s Urgent Cares, spanning the region from North Valleys to Sparks and Reno, are staffed with board-certified physicians who provide patients access to care through virtual and streamlined in-clinic visits. Saint Mary’s Urgent Care offers an unparalleled patient experience with a more efficient, accessible, and coordinated model resulting in improved health outcomes for patients. This high performance has helped Saint Mary’s become the only Northern Nevada health system to receive an ‘A’ Hospital Safety Grade from The Leapfrog Group and be named one of the 100 Top Hospitals® by Merative.

This expansion is the second notable development in the space of urgent and emergency medicine for Saint Mary’s after the hospital announced an innovative online scheduling tool, GetCareNow. With GetCareNow, patients fill out a brief, secure form before choosing a reservation time. The tool can notify the patient if there is a change that may extend the wait time, or a notification can be sent if there has been a reduction in surge to encourage an earlier arrival time. Importantly, GetCareNow is intended only for non-life-threatening emergencies. In a life-threatening emergency, call 9-1-1 immediately.

These milestones reflect the hospital’s agility and commitment to providing innovative health solutions. As a member of Prime Healthcare, an award-winning health system, Saint Mary’s is dedicated to meeting the health needs of its patients in a manner that combines safety, excellence, and trust.
