The clinic is located on 341 Highway 135 in St. Regis, MT. Appointments are available by calling 822-4278.

The construction of the clinic was made possible through financial support from the St. Regis Resort District and from the Human Resource Council, a generous donation of the land by Grant Lincoln, and a zero-interest loan from Blackfoot Telecommunications through the U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Development.

“The Rural Economic Development program we administer through our partner cooperatives like Blackfoot Telecommunications provides direct investment in necessary community infrastructure,” said Matthew Jones, Montana State Director for USDA Rural Development. “Investing in our rural medical facilities brings better services to our sparsely populated areas, and that’s what we at USDA Rural Development seek to provide: Investment in our rural Montana communities. We’re proud to be a part of this great project.”
