We know kids have a knack for needing care when the office is closed, which is why we believe that as parents and caregivers, you deserve to know all your options for accessing pediatric care after hours.
Through Logan Health Children’s Primary Care, there are now two ways to connect with a provider on evenings and weekends for any non-emergent health issue. Choose the best option that works for you, and know our team of providers will follow up for any necessary next steps as soon as the office is open again.
By Video: We’ve partnered with Montana Pediatrics, a collaborative of Montana-based pediatric providers, to bring you new, video-based after-hours care.
Every evening and every weekend, you can access a pediatrician we trust (you may even see one of us if we’re on shift!) for high-quality, low-cost care. The doctor will treat your child while they see and hear them as you relay your concerns. Montana Pediatrics will make sure our clinic staff is notified of your visit and we’ll reach out for any follow-up needs if necessary as soon as the clinic is open again.
Request a Visit:
By Phone: Whenever the clinic is closed, you can always call our answering service and then be routed to our physician on-call. (406) 752-8300
