Big Sandy Medical Center is a rural health care facility located in Big Sandy, Montana.
The facility was built and opened in 1965 as a nine-bed hospital and a physician clinic
attached. The community built and opened the facility after conducting a community
fund drive. This allowed Big Sandy to build its first health care facility using all donated
money, material, and labor. In 1985 the community added a twenty-two bed skilled
nursing home attached to the original hospital and clinic.
Today, after several remodel projects, the community has a well built and well staffed
hospital, skilled nursing home, rural health clinic and a home health agency taking care of
the community’s health care needs.
Big Sandy Medical Center is located at 166 Montana Avenue East in Big Sandy,
Montana. The facility is part of an agricultural based community that is located at the
foot of the Bear Paw Mountains. Wheat fields and cattle herds are visible signs of the
agricultural base along with natural gas wells and small logging operations that
supplement the economy.
Big Sandy Medical Center offers acute hospital care, skilled and inter-mediate nursing
home care, a family practice clinic, emergency room services, laboratory and radiology
services, physical therapy, and home health care. We also work with other area hospitals
and provide mobile services such as dexa-scan and echocardiology and hospice care.
The mission of Big Sandy Medical Center has always been to provide the best possible
care for its patients at the most reasonable cost in a competent, professional manner.
