Pureview Health Center’s independence will not affect county workers

Workers employed by the county will not have to worry about keeping their jobs when Pureview Health Center becomes independent. Lewis and Clark County has approved plans to end its relationship with PureView, and Jill Steely, executive director of PureView, said county staff members will be automatically rehired by the health center, with pay and new benefits equal to what they received from the county. The separation officially goes into effect on March 1, 2020.
