On July 1, 2020, we began our 90th year of caring for you.
When Marcus Daly Memorial Hospital opened its doors on July 1, 1931, health
care in Ravalli County changed forever. We are here because of you. Thank
you for choosing us; we care for you and the health of our community.
Our commitment is to live by our mission of providing quality, accessible,
personalized care to patients of all ages, from newborns to end-of-life
and everything in between. This is our steadfast commitment today, tomorrow
and into the future.
During these uncertain times, our number one priority continues to be maintaining
a safe environment for staff, patients and their loved ones. Throughout
our facilities there are stringent clinical protocols. High-touch areas
are cleaned frequently, including doorknobs, chairs, tables and work surfaces.
After each patient, clinical areas, exam rooms and equipment are cleaned.
When entering our facilities, our patient access team is there to greet
you and take you through the screening process. They will ask you a few
questions, check your temperature, remind you to use the hand sanitizer,
and give you a mask if you do not have one. You will be reminded to keep
safe distances, find safety barriers in many locations and experience
Patients exhibiting flu-like and or respiratory symptoms seek care in our
designated Viral Clinic. If you are a patient with viral symptoms or diagnosed
with COVID-19 and require emergency care or surgery, we are prepared.
All medical staff wears the appropriate protective equipment. There is
designated rooming, and in the event of emergency surgery, we have a negative
air pressure room in our surgery center, for the protection of our staff
and other surgery patients. We perform COVID-19 testing on all pre-surgery
patients to ensure no one goes undiagnosed.
