COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) information


May 22, 2020

During every stage of the COVID-19 crisis, St. Peter’s Health is committed to maintaining a high level of vigilance to protect our patients and caregivers. We want you to know that we’re here for you and prepared to safely care for ALL patients.

As we take steps to safely re-open, the health and well-being of our patients, 1,600+ caregivers and the community will remain our top priority. Along with a series of other measures to help limit the spread of COVID-19 in our community, we have set up a call center that is open 24/7 to field questions regarding COVID-19.





Here are some other important things to know:

  • Anyone who thinks they have COVID-19 and is experiencing COVID-19 symptoms should call 406-457-4180 before visiting any of our facilities to seek care. If symptoms are life-threatening call 9-1-1 or visit the Emergency Department immediately. Our Emergency Department is open 24/7 for emergency medical needs. 
  • Our facilities are open, although some services have been adjusted. If you need to seek care today for something other than COVID-19 or flu-like symptoms there are many care options. Our Urgent Care options have been adjusted to help limit the spread of COVID-19. Remember that waiting to seek care can be harmful, especially if you have chronic illness, major health issues or a life-threatening emergency. 
  • We have taken a series of steps to help protect our patients and caregivers. The Main and East Entrances will be closed during the weekend (please use Emergency Department Entrance). Other changes to services are detailed here. When you do visit our clinics and facilities, here's what to expect: 
    • You will be screened and asked to wear a mask. Clean cloth masks are available to borrow at the registration tables.
    • Non-essential guests will not be allowed
    • You may be asked to wait in your car
  • There are steps everyone can take to help protect themselves and their loved ones, and limit the spread of illness in our community. Here are some other ways you can help
  • For general information on COVID-19, we suggest these trusted resources.


"Rest assured, St. Peter’s Health is here to care for you. We have a team of leaders and medical staff dedicated to COVID-19."
