Transformation is in the Building
When the 10-story Tahoe Tower was built in 2007, the 5th and 9th floors were left as shells for Renown to build out in the future as our community grew and needs were identified. These floors are being transformed into a brand new PICU/ICU on Tahoe 5 and a new trauma surgical ICU on Tahoe 9.
Tahoe 9, Surgical Trauma ICU
Renown Health’s new surgical trauma ICU on the ninth floor of the Tahoe Tower at Renown Regional Medical Center opened in April 2023. This new space has 34 private patient rooms, each with a private bathroom and state-of-the-art equipment.

Tahoe 5, NICU/PICU
The fifth floor of the Tahoe Tower at Renown Regional will be home to a brand new neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) and pediatric intensive care (PICU). On the NICU side, Renown Children’s Hospital will increase capacity from 39 to 49 bassinets, and on the PICU we are proud to increase capacity from 11 to 16 private patient and family rooms.
