Sapphire Community Health grows into bigger building

Sapphire Community Health Center has moved across the street on North 3rd in Hamilton. In fact, it's a situation of trading places with Human Resource Council.
The health center is moving across North 3rd Street into the Ravalli County Human Resource Council building at 316 North 3rd. At the same time, the Human Resource Council is moving into the former health center.
The community health services agency accepts all patients and assigns fees on a sliding scale, based on household size and income. Recently, mental health services were added to infant care, cancer screening, women's care and other medical issues.
This week, Sapphire Community Health was informed that another federal grant of over $40,000 was authorized by the Department of Health and Human Services. The funding was announced by U.S. Montana Senators Jon Tester and Steve Daines. The money is from the Health Resources and Services Administration's Health Center Cluster grant program.
