Healthcare in rural and frontier communities is an absolutely essential component of the quality of life for rural residents. Most of the NMHA member facilities are the largest employer in the community and provide the best jobs. Their survival and vibrancy are the lifeblood of many small towns. The NMHA was established to do whatever is necessary to support and stabilize the critically needed services and programs of frontier healthcare providers.

Funded by a three-year, $730,176 federal grant from the Department of Health and Human Services, the North Central Montana Center for Rural Health Care Transitions provides for care transition coaches based in community hospitals in Chester, Malta, Lewistown, Havre, Big Sandy, Fort Benton, Conrad, Shelby, Cut Bank, White Sulphur Springs, and Choteau. There is also a care transition coach at Benefis in Great Falls who is dedicated to working with rural patients across the region to help bridge gaps when they are discharged from Benefis back to their community.

This site, established primarily for the use of its members and their communities, will provide access to information about current services, programs and projects. The NMHA is a partner of the REACH Montana Telehealth Network (RMTN), a service of Benefis Health System in Great Falls and this site will link to the RMTN as well as other sites that contain important information for providers and residents of rural Montana.

We hope you enjoy our site. Please contact us for suggestions, improvements or additions.
