KALISPELL, Mont. (AP) - A children’s cancer clinic is being established in Kalispell so patients from western Montana can stay closer to home for most treatments.

Kalispell Regional Healthcare is working with a Billings doctor to create a pediatric hematology and oncology clinic.

The Daily Inter Lake reports (https://bit.ly/1I6My4s ) that child cancer patients in western Montana children have had to travel to Spokane, Seattle or Denver for treatment.

Dr. Carrie Neuhardt, who has spent the last three years as a pediatric specialist in hematology and oncology in Billings, will move to the Flathead Valley in August to start up a new clinic.

Neuhardt described the Kalispell undertaking as a major move for health care in Montana.
