Become a Patient

Join the HOPES Community

When you become a patient at HOPES, you gain access to a range of comprehensive services in one central location. Our community health center welcomes everyone, with or without health insurance. To get started, call us Monday – Friday at (775) 786-4673.

Your First Appointment

If you are a new patient, we can help you schedule your first appointment quickly, often within the same week. Because there are a limited number of new patient appointments each week, they are scheduled on a first call, first-served basis.

To schedule your first appointment:

  1. Call (775) 786-4673 at 8:00am, Monday–Friday, and ask to schedule a new patient appointment.
  2. Next-day appointments are usually filled within the first few minutes after 8:00am. If you are unable to schedule an appointment on your first try, please call again the next day.

Please note: After you are established as a HOPES patient, you can call anytime during normal business hours to schedule your regular appointments.

What To Bring To Your First Appointment

To ensure a smooth transition of services to HOPES, please bring these items to your first appointment:

  • The most recent list of the medications you are taking.
  • Medical records from either the hospital, your last emergency room visit or previous physician.
  • Completed HOPES intake forms: Patient Registration forms and Health History forms (These forms are available on the right panel and at HOPES).

Opioid Prescription Policy:

Northern Nevada HOPES does not prescribe opioid medications to its patients. If you are currently taking opioids, our providers will explore alternatives with you.
