Renown Health and Aetna, a CVS Health Company, have reached a new, multi-year agreement that allows Aetna members to maintain in-network access to Renown Medical Group primary care and specialist physicians and advanced practitioners, Renown’s Urgent Cares and hospitals including Renown Regional Medical Center; Renown South Meadows Medical Center; Renown Children’s Hospital and Renown Rehabilitation Hospital.

Both organizations worked diligently to reach a fair agreement without impacting patient care for current Aetna members.

The agreement protects affordability and provides Aetna members with access to premier healthcare services, physicians, and facilities.

“Renown’s agreement with Aetna further demonstrates our mission as a charitable, not-for-profit academic health system to ensure access to quality healthcare,” said Brian Erling, MD, MBA, President, and CEO of Renown Health. “As doctors, nurses, and caregivers, we want to provide the greatest access, experience, and highest-quality care for our community including those insured by Aetna. Together, we are poised to positively impact the lives of thousands of families in our region, providing them with the comprehensive coverage and support they need to lead better, healthier lives.”

“We are committed to serving Aetna members with access to quality, convenient, affordable care through our network of providers,” said John Wagner, Aetna Chief Network and Operations Officer for Nevada. “We are pleased to reach an agreement with Renown Health that enables us to continue working together to meet the health care needs of our members across northern Nevada.”

Renown Regional Medical Center has been named the #1 Hospital in Nevada by US News & World Report for the past three years as the best hospital for patients with complex, life-threatening, or rare conditions for the last two years and rated highest in NV in eight specialty areas including, Cancer; Cardiology & Heart Surgery; Diabetes & Endocrinology; Gastroenterology & GI Surgery; Nephrology; Neurology & Neurosurgery; Orthopedics; Pulmonology & Lung Surgery.

Renown South Meadows Medical Center in south Reno has earned an “A” Hospital Safety Grade from The Leapfrog Group, the nation’s premier advocate of transparency in health care. This national distinction recognizes Renown Health’s national accomplishments in ensuring safe, high-quality hospital care for patients.
