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 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 the 2 renowned physicians and 6 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 303-bed health care system located in Kalispell. KRH serves more than 170,000 within a geographical region of 20,000 square miles and employs more than 2,600 team members.  Comprising the health care system are two acute-care hospitals (Kalispell Regional Medical Center and The HealthCenter), a skilled nursing facility (Brendan House), a fitness facility (The Summit Medical Fitness Center), a mental health and substance abuse facility (Pathways Treatment Center), a durable medical equipment company (Kalispell Medical Equipment) and more than 20 primary and specialty physician clinics.  Core services include cancer, cardiovascular, neuroscience and spine, emergency services, neonatal intensive care, and orthopedics. With the philanthropic support of the KRH Foundation, the system has maintained the nation’s first rural air ambulance service (A.L.E.R.T.) for more than 35 years and continues to add services and equipment to meet the growing health care needs of the region.

Since its inception in 2003, The HealthCenter has had proven positive results for Northwestern Montana, bringing under one roof, a number of services that had once been scattered. The facility has been deemed a gateway to the future of health care.
