The Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes of Montana opened the doors to a $2.7 million health care clinic. The three-story, 23,000-square-foot facility replaces a much smaller one in Polson. It will offer a wide range of medical, dental, pharmaceutical and other services. "This facility is more than just a building," tribal health director Kevin Howlett told The Missoulian. "It's a statement to the enduring confidence we have as a tribe in working toward our own destiny. Health care is a critical part of that." The tribal health department employs 146 people and has a budget of $15 million, the Missoulian reported. Get the Story:
