Partnership Health Center (PHC) will close its satellite clinic in Superior, Montana, on Thursday, Dec. 30.

“We’ve been honored to provide healthcare services in Superior since 2015,” said Laurie Francis, Partnership Health Center executive director. “While we will no longer have a physical presence in Superior, we are eager to help our patients connect with the healthcare services they need. We can do that through PHC’s Missoula locations, or by helping connect them to services available closer to their home. Mineral Community Hospital continues to be a great healthcare partner and provider in the area.”

PHC’s Superior clinic primarily offered behavioral health and dental services. The patientled PHC Board of Directors elected to close the in-person site in light of dental staff shortages and the availability of remote behavioral health services. In-person behavioral health services have not been offered at the Superior clinic since before the COVID-19 pandemic.

PHC has sent a notification letter to all patients who have received care at PHC’s Superior clinic at any point in the past two years. This letter included information about ways to continue care at Partnership Health Center either through in-person services in Missoula or remotely through phone or video appointments.

“It’s very important to us that patients are aware that we’re here to help during this transition,” Francis said. “We encourage patients to call our main line at 406-258-4789 with any questions or concerns. Our team is ready to help with any questions or challenges that may arise from this change.”

All PHC employees who worked primarily at the Superior clinic will continue to have jobs with PHC. These valued members of the PHC staff will work remotely and will not need to change roles.

“On behalf of all of PHC, thank you to all those we have served in Mineral County for trusting us to provide your care,” Francis said. “We wish you good health and well-being, always.”
