Sidney Well being Heart’s Workforce of Medical doctors Supply “Outstanding Care For Lifestyles”

Sidney Health Center is a not-for-profit community based medical center that has been serving people in the MonDak region for more than 100 years. Our passion for caring is shared by the doctors, nurses, and several hundred employees and volunteers. This commitment to caring is our allegiance to the community as we strive to provide “Exceptional Care for Life.”

Located in the heart of Richland County, the attractive Eastern Montana campus includes an acute care hospital, clinic area, retail pharmacy and a 93-bed extended care facility offering a complete range of services from birth through end-of-life, which is complemented by an array of outreach services.

This continuum or succession of services is not typical of rural healthcare organizations, but Sidney Health Center is not typical. A strong complement of primary care physicians and a unique selection of surgical specialists combined with a modern facility, and up-to-date medical equipment, makes Sidney Health Center a special place to work, receive care and practice medicine.

If you need help finding a medical provider or scheduling a doctor’s appointment, call the Sidney Clinic receptionist at (406) 488-2510.
