As global and domestic cases of 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) continue, NRMC is still maintaining safety measures. We still have our implemented measures in place.
We are actively following all guidelines put in place by the Governor and the CDC.
In an effort to protect the health and wellness of our patients, visitors and staff, Northern Rockies Medical Center Hospital and Clinic have implemented temporary visitor restrictions, which may vary depending on the needs for each specific patient.
We are limiting visitors to essential care givers only. If you do not need to be at the facility we ask that you do not come.
If you are visiting NRMC or a patient at NRMC, please call ahead if you have questions around the specific visitor restrictions.
Because seeing loved ones while they are a patient in our care, is vital to their health and well-being, we wanted to share some alternate ways to communicate with your friends and family and stay in touch while they are in our care. These can include video, voice and text options. Check out this link for some ideas.

When to call your doctor:
Connect with a NRMC Health provider online who can help assess your symptoms based on the most recent updates from the CDC.
For any existing appointments and when clinically appropriate, you can request to convert your in-person visit to a video visit.
Call the Northern Rockies Medical Clinic at 406-873-5507 to learn if this can apply to you our one of your loved ones.
You will need to have access to a computer or some other device which allows video conferencing. At this time governmental agencies are having slightly more relaxed regulations on how we can provide these services.
Do note, your provider may require you to come into the facility if they feel your visit does not meet the qualifications for online visits.
If interested in this as an alternative to your care call your provider to see if you fit the criteria for virtual doctor visit.
