SWMTCHC Senior Leadership

A Message from the CEO

“As a mission-driven nonprofit health center, we believe access to quality healthcare is a basic human right and providing the opportunity for people to live healthier lives means a healthier community.

We also believe that everyone deserves to be treated with kindness and compassion. We work hard every single day to provide primary medical, dental, pharmacy, behavioral health services and care management to every person in our region.

For more than 34 years, the clinic has been an integral part of the healthcare landscape, growing with each passing year by adding sites and services that you and your family need. We serve nearly 14,000 patients each year, including people who are insured and those who are uninsured and rely on our sliding fee scale.

It is our privilege to provide comprehensive care to Southwestern Montana, whether it be in Butte, Anaconda, Sheridan or Dillon. We believe that our efforts make the entire region a better place to live. We hope to see you soon.”
