Northern Montana Hospital Chief of Staff Dr. Kevin Harada said the surge of hospitalizations due to COVID-19 has made cutting back on non-essential services like elective surgeries has had to become a nearly daily conversation at the hospital. Harada said they haven't had to cut back yet, but he is concerned that they may need to if things get worse, which remains a distinct possibility. Hill County had 14 residents hospitalized as of the county health department's COVID-19 update Monday, with three Blaine County residents with COVID-19 hospitalized. Harada said Northern Montana Hospital has taken care of patients with COVID-19 from several other Montana counties and even from out of state.
