Donor Network West Withdraws Lawsuit Against Renown Health

RENO, Nev. (Jan. 18, 2024) – Donor Network West has dismissed its breach of contract claim against Renown Health with both organizations agreeing to wait for the completion of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) waiver process.

“For the past 40 years Renown Health and Donor Network West have worked hand in hand to help save and heal lives,” said Janice Whaley, president and CEO of Donor Network West. “Donor Network West appreciates our longstanding partnership with Renown and its renewed commitment to collaboratively work with us while awaiting a CMS determination. We look forward to the continued collaboration and partnership between our two organizations in order to give more people a second chance at life.”

There are more than 600 Nevadans currently waiting for a lifesaving organ transplant and more than 100,000 people waiting nationwide. Both Donor Network West and Renown Health remain committed to working with and serving the people of northern Nevada in support of the lifesaving mission of organ donation.

While the complaint against Renown has been withdrawn, Donor Network West has taken the step of filing a detailed amended complaint against Nevada Donor Network. This filing maintains allegations of illegal conduct and tortious interference within Donor Network West’s designated service area.
