Who We Are

We are dedicated to building a healthier community

What We Do

Northern Nevada HOPES is a nonprofit community health center in downtown Reno, NV that offers integrated medical care and wellness services. We welcome patients, wherever they are in life, and provide them with compassionate, high-quality healthcare.

Our growing list of services includes adult and pediatric primary care, chronic disease management, wellness and nutrition, behavioral health counseling, substance use counseling, case management, a pharmacy, and more. Our team-based approach to care gives patients access to a range of comprehensive services in one convenient location.

For medically underserved populations, our one-stop-shop healthcare model reduces barriers to care and increases the likelihood of maintaining long-term health. HOPES accepts most insurance plans, Medicaid, Medicare, and the uninsured. For the uninsured, we offer discounted services based on a sliding fee scale.

Designations

 

Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC)

Northern Nevada HOPES is a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC). Federally qualified health centers (FQHCs) include all organizations receiving grants under Section 330 of the Public Health Service Act (PHS). FQHCs qualify for enhanced reimbursement from Medicare and Medicaid, as well as other benefits. FQHCs must serve an underserved area or population, offer a sliding fee scale, provide comprehensive services, have an ongoing quality assurance program, and have a governing board of directors. Certain tribal organizations and FQHC Look-Alikes (an organization that meets PHS Section 330 eligibility requirements, but does not receive grant funding) also may receive special Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement.

Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH)

Northern Nevada HOPES is a Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH). The patient-centered medical home (PCMH) is a model of care that aims to transform the delivery of comprehensive primary care to children, adolescents, and adults. Through the medical home model, practices seek to improve the quality, effectiveness, and efficiency of the care they deliver while responding to each patient’s unique needs and preferences. No matter where you fall on the spectrum of PCMH transformation—healthy skepticism, just getting started, in the middle of practice redesign, or implementing advanced concepts—the adoption of PCMH concepts can benefit your practice, your patients, and your bottom line.

National Health Services Corps (NHSC)

Northern Nevada HOPES is a National Health Service Corps (NHSC) site. The National Health Service Corps (NHSC) helps bring health care to those who need it most.

We provide this care at 5,000 NHSC-approved health care sites in urban, rural, and frontier areas. In addition to Corps providers currently providing care, nearly 1,100 additional members are in school or residency, preparing to practice. (via HRSA.gov)
