UHS entered the Reno-Sparks area in 1980 when it purchased a controlling interest in Sparks Family Hospital. Three years later, UHS completed the construction of a new acute care hospital: Northern Nevada Medical Center. It was the first hospital built by UHS and the first hospital in the area in 40 years. Nurses at Northern Nevada Medical Center enjoy an environment that’s dedicated to providing quality, compassionate care to our patients.

The nurses at Northern Nevada Medical Center uphold our commitment to excellence by providing compassionate care to our patients. Hear why Jessica Rios, RN, chose a nursing career at Northern Nevada Medical Center:
