Marcus Daly Hospital Respiratory Services up and running

For Bitterroot valley residents experiencing acute respiratory distress, help is only a phone call away and, if appropriate, a same-day appointment can be made to be examined by a nurse or a doctor at the Respiratory Services center located at Marcus Daly Memorial Hospital in Hamilton. The medical facility’s entrance is through a tent where the care team privately and safely sees two patients at a time, eliminating any type of waiting area and exposure to staff or patient’s loved one. The parking area is set up by patient needs and services; it includes handicap, respiratory, and swabbing; patients receive care in their vehicle when appropriate.

Patients that are experiencing respiratory symptoms, especially those at high-risk, are encouraged to receive care at the Respiratory Services location. Patients needing care should call the clinic first at 406-375-4762, giving the medical team the opportunity to determine if this is the appropriate location. Respiratory symptoms include chest congestion, chills, cough, difficulty breathing, fever, nasal congestion, runny nose, shortness of breath and sore throat. The respiratory location is separated from the primary care and specialty clinics, making medical providers and specialists available for their patients needing care through an in-office visit and Daly Connect, the new telehealth service.

The yellow tent is the first location where you meet medical personnel. According to April Weinberger, MD, Medical Staff Director at Marcus Daly Hospital, usually a person visiting a clinic or hospital is greeted by a person at a desk who asks them to wait.
