Updated: May 13

Dillon, Montana, March 14, 2024 – Barrett Hospital & HealthCare is thrilled to

announce a new partnership with Bridger Orthopedic, Southwest Montana’s most

comprehensive and renowned orthopedic practice, based in Bozeman. This collaborative

effort brings an additional skilled orthopedic surgeon to live and work in Dillon.

The partnership between Barrett Hospital & HealthCare and Bridger Orthopedic signifies

a substantial milestone in improving access to specialized orthopedic services for

residents of Dillon and the surrounding regions.

The addition of a highly skilled and experienced orthopedic surgeon to serve Dillon and

the surrounding regions enables Barrett Hospital & HealthCare to continue to

demonstrate its commitment to meet the diverse healthcare needs of the community.

This strategic alliance ensures that patients will have access to more orthopedic

treatments, including joint replacements, sports medicine care, fracture care, and

additional highly specialized orthopedic treatments.

"Bridger Orthopedic is a leader in orthopedic services in Southwest Montana. We are

excited to begin our partnership with them and bring even more specialized care to our

community," said Taylor Rose, Chief Executive Officer at Barrett Hospital & HealthCare.

"By bringing an additional high quality orthopedic surgeon to Dillon, we can continue to

build our team providing first-class care to our community members, right here in their

hometown. This collaboration is a testament to our commitment to prioritize our

patients' needs, reduce travel, and enhance their healthcare experience."

After a national search, Barrett Hospital & HealthCare and Bridger Orthopedic have

selected Dr. Gregg W. Schellack, DO, a well-respected orthopedic surgeon, and a

specialist in the field, to serve in this role. Dr. Schellack will be joining the orthopedic

team, stepping in as Dr. Dan Downey, MD, a revered member of Barrett Hospital &

HealthCare’s surgical staff, enters a well-deserved retirement. Dr. Schellack, a Dillon

native, will be returning to the community and joining Barrett Hospital & HealthCare to

provide skilled care beginning on April 1st 2024. Driven by a passion for delivering

personalized treatment plans, Dr. Schellack will work closely with patients to alleviate

pain, restore mobility, and improve their quality of life.

“I’m excited that I will be returning to my roots in Dillon, a place that instilled in me the

values of community and compassion, to continue my journey in medicine,” said Dr.

Gregg W. Schellack, DO. “Now, with years of specialized training and experience, I am

eager to give back to the town that gave me so much. My goal is to provide

comprehensive, patient-centered orthopedic care by utilizing the latest techniques and

technologies improving the quality of life for my patients. It is a privilege to serve the

community that has shaped me, and to contribute to its well-being as both a healthcare

provider and a proud alumnus of Dillon.”

The partnership between Barrett Hospital & HealthCare and Bridger Orthopedic ensures

that Dillon and the surrounding area residents will have access to more orthopedic

procedures and a range of non-surgical and surgical treatment options.

“We are thrilled to announce our partnership with Barrett Hospital & HealthCare, which

marks a pivotal step in our commitment to expand quality orthopedic care in the Dillon

and the surrounding communities,” said Michael Johns, Chief Executive Officer at Bridger


“This collaboration is a testament to our shared goal of ensuring that the

highest standards of orthopedic treatment are accessible to all, regardless of their

geographical location. We believe that everyone deserves the best possible care close to

home, and we are proud to be part of a team that is making this a reality for those living

in and around the Dillon area.”
