Meet Our Providers


Our providers are the core of our health care team. On top of seeing patients in our clinic, they cover call for our hospital and nursing home. They rotate evenings and weekends to assure that there is always coverage for our emergency room. They are very proactive with our nursing home residents and meet with our care plan team weekly to assure the best possible care.

To schedule a visit with one of our providers please contact the Benton Medical Center at 406-622-5485.
