According to the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribal Health Department several health centers will be close on Monday April 6th.

Starting Monday April 6th, Tribal Health will also close the pharmacy pick-up service at Ronan Health Center.

Patients of the center will receive medications mailed to them directly.

Prescriptions normally delivered for patient pick up at the Ronan, Hot Springs, Elmo and Arlee Health Centers will be mailed directly to patients.

Patients whose medications will be mailed need to update their phone numbers and addresses for mailing. Please call Pharmacy directly and leave a voicemail with their information at (406) 745-2426 to update phone numbers and mailing addresses.

Pharmacy will not mail out prescriptions until the most current mailing address is confirmed. Please allow for approximately 7 days for postal delivery of medications. All refill requests need to be done at least 72 hours in advance.

Curbside service for pickup and drop-off of prescriptions remains at the Polson and St. Ignatius Health Pharmacies.
