Patients and Visitors

Whether you are joining us for a hospital stay or visiting friends or loved ones, this section will guide you through some of the most common topics of interest for patients and visitors.

Group Visits

We understand that groups may wish to visit patients at Kalispell Regional Medical Center to sing, chat or share seasonal cheer. Interested groups may call ahead to schedule a visit in the main lobby at KRMC, and patients who are able will join them in the lobby. To schedule a group visit, please contact the volunteer office at (406) 752-1781.

We are unable to accommodate unscheduled group visits. For the health and safety of our youngest patients, we do not allow group visits in the pediatric unit. If anyone in your group has a cough, cold or other illness, please schedule your visit for another time.

Hospitalist Care During Your Stay

Hospitalists are medical physicians who are specially trained in caring for you, the patient, while in the hospital. KRMC hospitalists are on-site at the hospital seven days a week, 24 hours a day to provide you with ongoing and immediate care.

At KRMC our hospitalists are board certified in internal medicine or family practice. Our hospitalists specialize in managing your care to provide you with quality care and modern treatment practices throughout your hospital stay.
