On a daily basis WIM sees the shifting, merging, expanding and downsizing of healthcare facilities across the state.  Our healthcare systems are constantly changing.  Some, more often than others.  Bozeman Health for example, is one system that we see continual changes from (merging of departments, movement of offices and providers, renaming of services, etc.)  WIM stays of top of these changes and provides the movement information in the Workforce Reports.

A recent change was the merger of Eureka Prompt Care (a division of Kalispell Regional Healthcare) with North Country Medical Clinic (a division of North Valley Hospital – an affiliate of Kalispell Regional Healthcare) to form Eureka Healthcare Primary Care. Is your head spinning too?

 

Eureka Healthcare

WIM tracks every division of every health system in Montana and recently added a slick way for users of the online directory to find a list of the divisions.  You can now search by “Health System” and return a listing of all divisions associated to that health system. The image above demonstrates the search functionality in WIM Tracking healthcare provider’s online search tool.
