Crow Agency, Montana, Nov. 22, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Crow/Northern Cheyenne Hospital, a 24-bed inpatient, Indian Health Service facility, has issued a Request for Quotation from contractors providing Certified Nurse Midwife Services. A 9-month contract beginning October 2018 with options up to 2022, will be awarded to the vendor who provides the best possible “all-inclusive daily rate” offer.

Quotations should reflect one clinic per week from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm with the option for an additional clinic each week if demand increases. The hospital anticipates 8-10 patients per day at 30 minutes per patient.

An eligible Certified Nurse Midwife would be able to provide healthcare, counseling and education to families of childbearing years and women of all ages. The provider who wins the contract will also be working with and assisting in on-the-job training of current Indian Health Service and Tribal staff as required; therefore, the Contractor must demonstrate sensitivity to cross-cultural and language differences. Interested applicants must be certified through an accredited nursing program in the state of Montana as well as be ACLS, BLS and PALS certified.  Indian Health Services will provide all necessary equipment and supplies.

Interested vendors should respond to kenneth.nicholson@ihs.gov by December 5th, 2017.

In addition to position specific requirements, to submit a quote for this opportunity, businesses must be registered in the System for Award Management (SAM) database. This SAM database allows contracting officers to accurately vet your business.
