Nevada Regents OK landmark UNR Med-Renown Health deal

• Northern Nevada Business Weekly

The Board of Regents met for two days last week to hash out a host of higher education issues in the wake of a busy legislative session that saw operational budgets slashed even as personnel budgets were spared. The result was a whirlwind of new approved policies, among them finalizing a major partnership deal for the UNR School of Medicine with Reno-area healthcare giant Renown Health.

Regents approve UNR-Renown deal, faculty merit pay policy in marathon two-day meeting

• Carson Now

Roughly 10 months after initial negotiations began on a partnership deal between the UNR Medical School and Reno-area health care giant Renown Health, regents voted 12-1 to approve a landmark agreement that will tie the two parties together for the next 50 years. The final vote Friday came after a months-long process of votes across different bodies, with the deal clearing both Renown’s corporate board and the Legislature. Regents, administrators and Renown executives have hailed the agreement as “transformative,” and a major step in expanding the scope of UNR’s medical programs, teaching programs and clinical research.
