Renown earns pediatric trauma verification


Renown Health has been verified as the first level two pediatric trauma center in Northern Nevada by the American College of Surgeons.

To achieve verification, the hospital must meet rigorous standards for comprehensive care, staffing, facilities, research, and educational contributions.

The new status considers trauma treatment capabilities of Renown’s pediatric emergency department as well as Renown Children's Hospital to offer such services as pediatric surgery, pediatric intensive care unit stays and pediatric physical and occupational therapy to children recovering from traumatic injuries.
