Monaco Ridge Renown Assisted Living Facility to Close
July 08, 2020
22 residents transition from South Meadows Medical Center campus to more contemporary assisted-living communities in the area; 12 employees offered positions within Renown.
After careful consideration, Renown Health has made the decision to close Monaco Ridge, the assisted living community located on the Renown South Meadows Medical Center campus, in an ongoing effort to ensure the highest quality and most appropriate care for our community. The facility is currently 50% occupied.
“Our focus at this time is to help our 22 remaining residents transition to other assisted-living communities in the area,” said Assaad Zeid, Administrator. “Our residents and their loved ones have been an important part of our ‘Renown South Meadows Family’ and we appreciate the trust and confidence the community has placed in us.”
“Northern Nevada is fortunate to have a number of forward-thinking, innovative assisted-living communities. Transitioning residents to more contemporary assisted-living communities in the area will allow them to receive additional support. Renown continues to keep up with the tremendous growth the region is experiencing, and is focusing on expanding care at the Renown South Meadows Medical Center campus to meet the need,” said Chris Nicholas, Vice President & Administrator, Renown South Meadows Medical Center and Renown Rehabilitation Hospital.
As has always been the case, residents and their families have a choice of the provider and potential residence they feel is best for them. The assisted living residences in northern Nevada are widely regarded for their expertise, compassionate care, contemporary practices and attractive, modern facilities. They have capacity to accept new residents and Renown is confident their services are of the same high caliber as their residents and families have been receiving.
“The quality, compassionate care offered at the Monaco Ridge community is due to the hard work and dedication of our employees,” said Michelle Sanchez-Bickley, Chief Human Resources Officer. “Our HR team is doing everything possible to transition the 12 employees of Monaco Ridge to other excellent employment opportunities within Renown Health, or to assist those who are interested in transitioning to other local assisted living communities who are currently recruiting staff.”
Monaco Ridge assisted-living is located on Double R Blvd in south Reno at Renown South Meadows Medical Center.
