John Seelmeyer

Washoe Medical Center is readying a

major expansion of its South Meadows

campus in Reno.

Plans include construction of two new

buildings a diagnostic and treatment

pavilion and a medical office building that

will house physicians’ offices as well as the

Washoe Institute for Neurosciences.

The projects total 116,000 square feet

and are scheduled for completion in early

2004. HMC Architects of Nevada is the

designer. Shaver Construction Inc. and

Gough Construction won contracts for

the work.

“The project is designed to meet the

growing demand for health care in the

region,” said Kellie Tormey of the Washoe

Health System marketing communications


Washoe Medical Center has operated

Washoe Village in the South Meadows

area since 1999, and Tormey said the village

was designed with the facilities to

allow for conversion to a full-service medical

center as expanded medical services

were needed in the fast-growing southern

area of Reno.
