Renown Health Touch-Free Water Dispenser Case Study


Reno, NV


Northern Nevada’s Renown Health is a nationally recognized health network with various large and small healthcare facilities committed to providing excellence and innovation in all aspects of its operations. Its main campus, the Renown Regional Medical Center, emphasizes a commitment to quality, which drives every decision – from patient care safety practices to remodel considerations to the best choice for employee and  visitor hydration.


As the largest integrated health network in northern Nevada, the facilities of Renown Health cater to thousands of employees, patients and visitors on a daily basis. During a recent remodel, the hospital saw an opportunity to replace dated five-gallon water jugs in various locations throughout the large facility. The goal was a hydration solution that would reduce costs and clutter while offering cleaner water to better align with Renown’s commitment to quality in every aspect.


With its hygienic, touch-free activation and ADA compliance, the Brita® Hydration Station® was an ideal upgrade, particularly for a facility where cleanliness is critical. Utilizing an advanced Brita® filtration system, these hands-free dispensers deliver Brita® filtered water from standard tap lines. The coconut carbon block filter carries NSF/ANSI certifications and lifecycle control accurately monitors filter usage, ensuring great-tasting water with every activation.


Sue Singleton, Imaging/MRI Supervisor at Renown Health is pleased with both units as they have proven successful with employees, patients and visitors alike. The Brita® Hydration Stations® are a tidier and more hygienic option than the dated, messy five-gallon jugs previously used in both the waiting room and imaging department. Both areas see a steady stream of employees, visitors and patients, and the reliable Brita® Hydration Stations® are welcome additions to a facility committed to quality.


Brita® Hydration Stations® offer users the benefits of great-tasting, Brita® filtered water at a variety of away-from home locations without the waste and cost of bottled water. The multiple product options transform regular tap water into healthier* drinking water using a certified advanced filtration system. Brita® Hydration Stations® are certified according to NSF/ANSI Standards 42 & 53 for the reduction of chlorine (taste and odor), lead, and 99.99% of cysts.

*Certified to reduce Lead & Cysts. Substances reduced may not be in all users’ water.
