Renown Children’s Hospital

Renown Children’s Hospital is the only dedicated children’s hospital between Sacramento and Salt Lake City. We see more than 30,000 patients a year from a baby born prematurely to a teenager injured in a sporting event or a serious illness, we treat kids from newborn up to age 18, regardless of the ability to pay.

For example, if a child in Northern Nevada suffers a severe head, neck, spine, brain or abdominal injury, most likely the child will visit Renown Children's Hospital. One of the first things the child will get is a CT scan in our low-dose CT scanner, a state-of-the-art machine that gives doctors instant imaging results while reducing the radiation exposure to the child. This helps doctors determine the next course of action immediately, a critical step in the healing process. The low-dose CT scanner was made specifically for kids, and thanks to generous donors, (in this case, David & Judy Hess), children in our community have access to it if they need it.

Renown's goal, along with our partners, is to keep care close to home for families in northern Nevada, where nearly 100,000 children live in Washoe County alone. To do so, we must continue to expand and enhance the services that we provide our youngest, most vulerable patients.
