In August 1910, the Presentation Sisters of Aberdeen, South Dakota, assumed management and operation of the County Hospital in Miles City at the request of the community, the Milwaukee Railroad and the doctors associated with the railroad. In 1915, the Sisters purchased the hospital, committing to a relationship with the community that would extend for decades.
In 1995, Holy Rosary Healthcare opened a new cost effective facility on a 58-acre campus in Miles City that allowed physicians and other care facilities to locate in the new hospital building. The building of the new facility and moving into the new facility was a community-wide effort, and was accomplished through the contributions of the staff, physicians, board members, community members and volunteers.
In keeping with the New Covenant process, the SCL Health assumed sponsorship of Holy Rosary Healthcare in 1997. Today, the 25-bed acute care hospital, residential living community and 16-physician clinic all in a single building, serves as a centralized setting for comprehensive health care for the people across eastern Montana. Physician specialties include family medicine, internal/adult medicine, general surgery, vascular surgery, women's health, orthopedics, ophthalmology (eye), psychology, audiology, cardiology, neurology, neurosurgery, oral surgery, nephrology (kidney), dermatology, and sleep medicine/pulmonology.
With a population density of 1.4 persons per square mile across the seven-county region around Holy Rosary, clearly this degree of contemporary health care is extraordinary.
As part of the Montana Region of the SCL Health, Holy Rosary is affiliated with St. James Healthcare in Butte and St. Vincent Healthcare in Billings, giving it access to some of the state's most advanced medical technology. To learn more about the SCL Health, click here.
Holy Rosary has a historic commitment to serving the poor and those with limited access to healthcare. The commitment is to the worth and dignity of the whole person spiritual, psychological, and medical.
