What is The HealthCenter?

HealthCenter Default
The HealthCenter, an acute care facility providing inpatient and outpatient services in surgery, imaging, rehabilitation, wellness and pain management, and women’s health. We opened our doors in 2003 as collaboration between the free standing outpatient surgical center, imaging center and Kalispell Regional Healthcare (KRH). Local physicians invested in the project, along with KRH. This partnership enables a high level of personalized and cost effective patient care that we are most proud of.

This beautiful facility provides 56,000 square feet of treatment areas, 8 operating rooms including the da Vinci surgical robot, 2 Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) suites, Computed Tomography (CT), X-ray, 3D Mammography, and Ultrasound on its main level. The second level provides comfortable rooms for surgical and medical inpatients. A comprehensive rehabilitation center is also on the second level providing individualized treatment plans for patients in need of intensive rehabilitation. 

The Digestive Health Institute is the largest gastrointestinal (GI) medical group in Montana and a regional destination for high-value GI health care. Our gastroenterology specialists treat a full range of simple to complex GI conditions, including colon and rectal cancer screening, stomach and small bowel cancers, liver problems (hepatitis and cirrhosis), gallstones, gallbladder disorders, biliary tract disorders, pancreatitis, pancreatic cysts and pancreatic cancer, hemorrhoids and ulcers, to name a few.

Glacier View Plastic Surgery, a department of HealthCenter, features two board-certified plastic surgeons and staff that share the goal of creating a positive experience that begins the moment a patient first interacts with the practice. The highly trained and experienced plastic surgeons are known for providing personalized care tailored to the needs of each individual. Not only do women and men from Missoula to Whitefish travel to the practice for plastic and reconstructive surgery with these renowned surgeons, but Glacier View Plastic Surgery also serves patients from Alaska, Canada, and throughout the Northwest.

The Montana Center for Wellness and Pain Management, a department of HealthCenter, is proud to offer some of the most comprehensive care in the United States. There are very few clinics in the country that have the diversity of expertise in one location devoted to the treatment of chronic pain. Our chronic pain physicians are highly skilled in the area of minimally invasive interventional techniques, medical management of pain, and the treatment of addiction. Their efforts are augmented by the talents of our physical therapist, physician assistants, family nurse practitioner, and a host of complementary treatment providers. Under the medical direction of an MD, these providers bring wellness to the patient's treatment plan. Our complementary staff includes experts in the fields of chiropractic, neuromuscular therapy, massage therapy, acupuncture, psychology, individual and group counseling, and naturopathy.

Northwest Women’s Health Care, a department of HealthCenter, provides complete wellness services for women. From the minute you enter the warm waiting room you know your experience will be different. The collaboration of physicians and certified, highly experienced nurse practitioners provide a fully comprehensive approach for each patient. The patient is encouraged to participate in her healthcare with an emphasis on preventative measures and maintaining wellness. The care and experience is truly unique.

The HealthCenter is proud to be an affiliate of Kalispell Regional Healthcare (KRH), a 354-bed health care system located in Kalispell, Montana. KRH serves more than 170,000 people within a geographical region of 20,000 square miles and employs nearly 4,000 team members.
