PVHC May Affiliate with Billings Clinic
Written by andrew-rossi on November 12, 2018
Powell Valley Healthcare is considering the idea of becoming an affiliate of Billings Clinic.
At a special meeting last Monday night, the Powell Valley Healthcare Board of Trustees voted unanimously to explore an affiliation with the Billings-based health care organization. That’s according to an article in the Powell Tribune.
Powell Valley Health Care Board President R.J. Kost said he believes this affiliation could open the door for new ventures in the future, but no immediate changes are in the works. Leaders from both the Billings Clinic and Powell Valley said it could take a year to work out the details of what the potential partnership would look like.
Although no final decisions have been made, board members from Powell Valley Health Care expressed their enthusiasm for the idea, which would allow for local residents to get more of their medical care closer to home, and would streamline patient care.
