Veterans’ Services

Mineral Community Hospital (MCH) heartily welcomes veterans for their health care needs.  If you are enrolled in the VA Health Care Program, our services will make it much more convenient for you and eliminate some trips to Ft Harrison in Helena, and the VA Clinic in Missoula.  We are certified with the Choices Card Program for outpatient care, and our Emergency Room is open 24/7/365 to serve your needs. Our administration understands the paper-process and admitting procedures to make this as easy as possible.

Mineral Community Hospital hosts the Montana Veterans Affairs Division Veteran Service Officer (VS) on the last Monday of each month from 10 am until 2 pm in our Out Patient Clinic. Pete Cornelius is a former Marine who helps veterans navigate through the VA Health Care System, and, can advise vets of their benefits. Walk-ins are welcome but an appointment assures that he can see you when he is out here. If the last Monday of the month is a holiday, Pete reschedules to the next Monday. Here is his contact information:, or call (406) 542-2501.  For your scheduled time, enter through the Outpatient/Physical Therapy door and enjoy coffee in our waiting room. MCH is here to serve those who have served.
