Caring facility

A growing Reno-Sparks Indian Colony prepares for a larger health clinic.

“Over the years, they’ve added on and added on and added on,” Dressler said. She’s watched the overcrowding grow during her 12 years working at the clinic. “And now we’re patching. Our roof is not good. Our electrical systems are patched together. And so we constantly go in and fix what we can to keep things right. By having a new clinic, it’s just going to be wonderful for the patients and the staff that work here.”
