Reasonable accommodation requests

Individuals with disabilities who wish to request a reasonable accommodation to the masking policy at any of our facilities may do so by submitting a request in writing to St. Peter's Chief Medical Officer at 2475 Broadway, Helena, MT 59601, for consideration. The written request must include medical documentation about the disability that is narrowly tailored and is absolutely necessary to:

  • Verify that the individual meets the ADA definition of disability (i.e., has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities)
  • Describe the needed modification
  • Show the relationship between the individual's disability and the need for the requested modification
