CMC Responds To St. Pat's Obstetric Program Announcement

Posted: Updated:
MISSOULA -

Community Medical Center officials said they're saddened to hear the news of Providence St. Patrick Hospital's decision to move into obstetrics and neonatal intensive care.

A statement from CMC notes in 1974 the Chair of Saint Patrick's Governing Board, Sister Croghan, said the hospital was discontinuing all obstetrical services in support of the recommendation of Missoula doctors.

In a statement then, she said, "If we are pro-life and want to save babies' lives, can we stand in the way of good neonatal nursing?"

CMC's statement said, "We agree with Sister Croghan and all of the practicing obstetricians and neonatologists who understand the adverse risk a duplicative program at Providence St. Pat's will introduce to the health of women and children in Western Montana."

So far, there is no timeline on when these new services will open.
