Former Scolari's at Robb Drive gets reinvented into full-service medical campus

RENO, Nev. – Tuesday, Oct. 27, 2015 – Saint Mary's Medical Group has announced it will open a new medical campus near Robb Drive at 6255 Sharlands Avenue beginning Sunday, Nov. 1. The 46,000 square-foot campus will be home to a variety of services including dermatology, diagnostic testing, primary care, urgent care, pediatrics, LabCorp, Pharmacy and specialty care inclusive of cardiology, pulmonology and OB/GYN services. Residents in northwest Reno will now have access to comprehensive medical services in their home neighborhood.

"Saint Mary's has a responsibility to enhance healthcare access and ensure quality options are available to patients; this is a direct testament to our investment in this new medical campus," said Helen Lidholm, CEO of Saint Mary's Health Network. "We are proud to be a community provider and collaborate with others to secure services in neighborhoods that currently do not have robust medical offerings."

The new medical campus is a relocation of Saint Mary's existing clinic, currently located at 1595 Robb Drive. As a full-service facility, providers including lead physician, Bayo Curry-Winchell, MD, internal medicine physician Sukumar Gargya, MD, family medicine physicians Elizabeth Jaffe, MD and Suraj Verma, MD, pediatrician Amit Bajaj, MD, and dermatologist Christian Jones, MD will see patients at this location. Additionally, physician's assistant Susan Bauman, PA-C and nurse practitioners Rommel Co, Nancy Jones and Cat Estipona will provide services at this location. The location will also be home to LabCorp as well as Saint Mary's Pharmacy offering over-the-counter prescriptions.

Additionally, Saint Mary's will expand its provider network by offering dermatology led by Christian Jones, MD and nurse practitioner Nancy Jones. The clinic will focus on treating diseases including skin cancer, eczema, acne, psoriasis, rosacea and more. This multi-specialty clinic will provide cardiology, pulmonology, obstetrics and gynecology as a way to serve the full spectrum of patients and their healthcare needs. Other services include the Saint Mary's Senior Wellness Center which is focused on offering risk assessments and care coordination for chronic disease patients.

To support the expansion of our community, Saint Mary's Medical Group will also open additional clinics before the end of 2015. Opening in December will be a new urgent care, primary care and diagnostic testing clinic in North Valleys as well as a brand new Sleep Center in downtown Reno. Both clinics will support the growing need for access to general and specialty care.
