Greetings from Partnership Health Center!

As some of you know, I will take a sabbatical leave from July 5, 2024, to October 4, 2024. I want to update you on provider coverage for your medical care while I am out.

We have developed a team approach for patients to create a space where you know your provider and a few others well. I am part of the team orange along with team pink. I feel very confident in these providers and the entire PHC team. Of course, if you are already familiar with one of my colleagues or another provider, please feel free to request a follow-up with them during my absence. My nurse panel manager, Leslie Kemmis, will be working to help all of you while I am out as well. If you have additional questions, please get in touch with us at (406) 258-4789.

Please see below for some commonly asked questions that may come up during the transition in your care.

I wish you all the very best.


Dr. Darin Bell, MD

Frequently Asked Questions

My provider is taking a leave of absence, what do I do now?

First, remember the rest of your health team is still here for you! We have an entire Care Team including a number of other providers that can help with your care while your primary care provider is gone.

Will the Care Team know me?

Yes, the Care Team and covering provider will have your information. All of your health records are in our system.

What do I do about medication refills?

As always, start with your pharmacy. They will contact us, but be aware that using the automated refill request systems may cause a brief delay in getting your medication.

How do I get the results of tests ordered by my provider?

Another provider on your Care Team will still receive these results. If you have had tests done and have not heard about the results within 5-7 days, please contact us.
