Montana State University, hospitals partner on rural cancer care

Bozeman-based Montana State University is partnering with Bozeman Health, Dillon's (Mont.) Barrett Hospital and the American Society of Clinical Oncology in Alexandria, Va., to create a model for delivering rural cancer care throughout Montana, the Bozeman Daily Chronicle reported Oct. 27.

The five-year project launched in June and will first chart barriers rural residents face in accessing cancer care and creating a chemotherapy program and infusion site at Barrett Hospital in Dillon.

The infusion suite is expected to open in fall 2023, according to the report.

The collaboration received $1.9 million from the Merck Foundation as part of its effort to help underserved communities nationwide.
