New Northern Nevada HOPES Facility to Open Soon in Downtown Reno

Posted: Updated:

It's the last phase of construction for Northern Nevada HOPES before the Community Wellness Center officially opens its doors to patients in February.

“Right now we're kinda cramped, we're in a small trailer, we can't fit all of our staff yet. We actually have people who are waiting to come on board,” says Dr. Chris McDonnell. 

The 38,000-square foot building at 5th and Ralston will allow Northern Nevada HOPES to go from serving 600 patients to 10,000. One highlight is the dedicated pediatric pod with 12 exam rooms, two treatment rooms and a unique "care team center."

“Four care teams that will be in here and that will include a provider, a behavior health specialist, an RN, a medical assistant as well as a case manager,” says Sharon Chamberlain, CEO Northern Nevada HOPES.

Integrated services that support a person's whole health is the mission at HOPES. That, says Dr. Chris McDonnell, makes them unique. 

“Everybody is interested in helping out the community, dedicated to all the different aspect of care.”

“To have a social services, a behavioral health person, a medical provider and RN all of these folks together to look at your whole being and say ‘what do we do’ and ‘how can we help’ you move toward a healthier person.”

And all those services will be under one roof, including labs, X-rays and a pharmacy. That will make life much easier for patients like 101 year-old Marie Hutcherson who has been receiving care at HOPES for the past two years. 

“The people are really personable and they help you and make sure you're going to do what they say.”

Northern Nevada HOPES accepts all types of private insurance, Medicare, Medicaid and offers greatly reduced fees for those without coverage.
