Quality Care From People Who Care
MBJ's Response to COVID-19 as of 5/4/20
As Montana and Missoula enters phase 1 of re-opening we are feeling both optimistic and cautious. The safety and well-being of our patients, staff, providers and community members is our highest priority. Missoula Bone & Joint (MBJ) continues to actively monitor the impact of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in our communities and is actively implementing changes as needed. Some things will look a little different around the clinic but you will receive the same quality orthopedic care you have come to trust.
On Monday April 27 our surgery center opened the surgery center schedule to accommodate our patients that have been patiently waiting, most of them in pain or discomfort, for these more urgent surgical needs.
Orthopedic Urgent Care remains OPEN with our regular extended hours to serve our communities orthopedic needs.
Effective 4/8/2020 face coverings were made mandatory for all providers, staff, and patients. Screening on arrival with temperature checks and questionnaire is still in effect.
In conjunction with other clinics, and led by Alpine Physical Therapy, we have been promoting #KeepItCoveredMissoula as we transition to our "new normal" of wearing a face mask. The data shows that if people wear a face mask in all public spaces that the transmission risk is significantly decreased. Please join us in playing our part in re-opening safely.
Patients and guests are encouraged to bring their own mask because of the shortage of surgical mask supplies. For patients arriving without masks, we will give you a homemade mask from our sterile wrap. Patients that refuse to wear a mask will have to reschedule their appointment.
We continue to limit patient companions to one essential adult companion only (essential meaning the patient needs a caregiver or help understanding), and we will ask all others to wait in their vehicle. Please do not bring children to your appointment, the only exception is if the patient is a child.
Orthopedic Urgent Care is OPEN for those unexpected orthopedic conditions. If you do need to call ahead please use the Urgent Care direct phone line (406) 829-5581
Telehealth video conferencing is an option for both the clinic and physical therapy appointments. To schedule a telehealth appointment please call the clinic (406) 532-8783 or physical therapy (406)542-4702.
