Crowe at the NCTBH offices in Lame Deer, Montana.  Also present was the N. Cheyenne Indian Health Service Unit Director Debbie Bends.

During the meeting with CEO Crowe, the NCTBH Commissioners announced their intention to pursue “638 Contracting” the Northern Cheyenne share of the healthcare funding of the Crow/Northern Cheyenne Hospital – to administer directly to tribal members on the N. Cheyenne Reservation.
