For 146 years, Providence Montana has established itself as a leader in health care, providing comprehensive services throughout Western Montana. However, as we look toward the future and forecast our needs based on the transformations happening around us, we know that health care is evolving. For this reason, the Montana Service Area has developed a 10-year Campus Master Plan that will position our ministries to be competitive in a changing health care landscape.
This investment will allow us to continue to be the regional inpatient referral center well into the future for the 600,000 residents of Western Montana, while also providing ambulatory facilities that will position us to compete in the Health 2.0 World.
The Campus Master Plan includes the following projects that will have a visible impact on our campus as well as other construction projects that will be taking place within the walls of our existing buildings and will be less visible, albeit also impactful to our patients and caregivers.
The new building will house the International Heart Institute and its related clinics, the Neuroscience Institute and Broadway Internal Medicine.
The new unit will house observation patients to free up space in the inpatient unit. The new 3T MRI and radiology reading rooms will address ongoing demand.
This project will expand capacity in our Emergency Department by adding five additional patient rooms.
The Providence Center remodel includes a new inpatient mental health unit with an entire floor dedicated to adolescent psych patients.
