Joining the staff at the Prairie Community Hospital is Royce Snapp, PA-C.
Snapp began her duties as the new medical provider at the hospital Feb. 1. She comes to Terry from Cold Bay, Alaska, where she worked for two years as Director of Clinical Services for the Eastern Aleutian Tribes. While there she supervised eight clinics in the sparsely populated area.
Snapp will join Chip Mintz, PA-C in providing medical services at the local facility.
Snapp, who moved to Terry late last year, is originally from Greeneville, Tenn., where her medical experience included working as a paramedic for 10 years as well as working in the Oneida Emergency Room for 8 years.
Along with becoming familiar with the Eastern Montana area, Snapp says she and her sister Jane Overman, who also moved to Terry, are looking forward to resuming some of their hobbies, which includes for Snapp hunting, fishing and photography, while Overman prefers beadwork and making jewelry.
“We love it here,” Snapp said. “The people are the nicest I’ve ever met.”
Although no regular schedule has yet been made between the two providers at PCH, Snapp said one will likely be announced at a later date.
