Leaders from Renown Health, the Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE) Board of Regents, University of Nevada, Reno and UNR Med converged for an affiliation agreement certificate signing event.  

The certificate signing commemorated the affiliation agreement - a 50-year commitment - between Renown Health and UNR Med establishing Nevada's first integrated health system to advance health and health care through world-class medical education, clinical research and patient care for our community and our state.  

The certificate signing event comes after the NSHE Board of Regents approved the agreement on June 11, 2021 and after Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak signed Senate Bill 342 into law on May 10, 2021 authorizing the NSHE Board of Regents to enter into an agreement such as the one with Renown Health.
