Renown Health is a non-profit integrated healthcare network serving Nevada, Lake Tahoe, and northeast California. Masimo SafetyNet, introduced earlier this year as part of Masimo’s efforts to help hospitals and clinicians combat the pandemic, is now in use at numerous institutions around the world. Renown Health uses Masimo Patient SafetyNet and Masimo Rad-97 Pulse CO-Oximeters to provide bedside and remote oxygen saturation and respiratory and pulse rate monitoring and notification within their hospitals and at a state-of-the-art 700-bed Alternate Care Facility. The facility has expanded into an adjacent parking structure, turned into a makeshift general ward to accommodate the unprecedented surge of patients suffering from COVID-19. In addition, Renown was one of the first systems to implement Masimo SafetyNet to expand patient care from the hospital to the home.
