Stories

We're proud to say we've brought Montana over 1,500 new faces a year for decades - that's thousands of babies delivered throughout our history, and today we still have the only Level III NICU in Western Montana. But numbers don't matter; people do. When it comes to caring for you and your child, Community delivers.

Zeyda's Story

"We brought Zeyda home, because we brought her to Community."

Zeyda was born weighing just 12.7 oz., about the size of a soda can. At any other hospital, baby Zeyda may not have survived. But over three decades of experience have taught Community that not every birth goes as planned.  So we were prepared and had everything Zeyda needed very close at hand. For instance, rushing her to our neonatal intensive care unit meant simply moving her into the next room. Today, Zeyda and her family are thriving.

Colin & Lexie's Story

"When our plans changed, Community delivered."

When Colin and Lexie Hickey arrived at Community, we embraced their desire for a home birth. Their team was welcomed as a part of Community. We made sure that their needs were accommodated here at Community. We believe parents' choices should always be heard because plans may change.  At Community, compassionate care is always our priority. Not only did we welcome their plans, we helped welcome their kids home.

The Trexler's Story

"We trust in tradition. We trust in Community."

Famiy heritage thrives at Community. We've been delivering babies and growing with families in Western Montana for over 98 years. We've learned that family tradition is as important as giving the best care possible. We share your success because we share your values. Our family tradition is your healthy family.
