One Health provides patients with access to compassionate and holistic primary health care.
One Health provides integrated medical and behavioral health care; dental; pharmacy; substance use disorder treatment; community outreach and education; and obstetrics. We refer to our model of integrated healthcare as “Whole Community Care,” striving to provide healing at the individual and community level.
One Health began with a call to provide compassionate primary care to the rural population of southeastern Montana. Our journey to unite smaller, independent health clinics began in the summer of 2015. Over the next four years, the previously stand-alone health clinics from Hardin, Ashland, Miles City, Lewistown, Chinook, and Harlem combined to form a single organization. This organization adopted the name One Health in the fall of 2020.
Together as One Health, clinics are able to combine resources to meet the expanding needs of communities; including school-based health centers, location/service expansions, access to the latest technology, financial coverage, and grant funding. For patients this translates to greater access to increased services while receiving the quality care expected from One Health.
A board of local community members provides direction to ensure we remain true to the unique needs in each area.
Building on the contributions of staff and volunteers, One Health has grown to become a multi-site, vibrant organization of staff serving a diverse group of individuals across central Montana and northern Wyoming. We are doctors, dentists, psychologists, pharmacists, nurses, social workers, therapists, community health advocates, medical assistants, patient service representatives, patients ourselves — and so much more. Most importantly, we are fellow community members honored to serve the areas that support, inspire, and guide our work.
Improve the wellbeing of everyone by providing accessible, quality healthcare for the whole community.
Whole health for the whole community.
One Health places the patient at the center of everything we do. Providing compassionate and exceptional care is at the heart of our mission.
In seeking to serve our patients, our communities and each other, we strive to be fully human, to take risks, to care deeply, and to act even amid change and uncertainty.
RESPECTFUL OF DIVERSITY
Embracing and respecting our differences in values, cultures, beliefs, and ideas, we appreciate that each brings unique gifts to our collective body. Together, we’re better than any single individual.
One Health is fundamentally about the pursuit of health justice for all. As such, we strongly condemn any form of discrimination based on race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, housing status, immigration status, socioeconomic status, creed, or anything else. We stand in solidarity with those across our community and nation who have suffered injustices of prejudice and hatred both in recent times and throughout our nation's history.
We set the bar high, seeking to embody professionalism. Our encounters are marked by respect, openness, and honesty.
Recipients of a precious endowment, we recognize that many resources have been entrusted to us—we pledge to care for them exceptionally well.
Our commitment is to deliver excellence in all our processes, decisions, performance, and human interactions.
RECOGNITION FOR NOTABLE IMPROVEMENT ACHIEVEMENTS
One Health received recognition from Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) through the 2022 Community Health Quality Recognition (CHQR) Program.
One Health received four “badges,” acknowledging progress in the following four categories: Access Enhancer, Health Disparities Reducer, Advancing HIT for Quality, and PCMH.
CHQR badges recognize health centers that have made notable quality improvement achievements in the areas of access, quality, health equity, health information technology, and COVID-19 public health emergency response for the most recent UDS reporting period. They are a tribute to the work that’s happening by all of us throughout the organization—and the real beneficiaries are our patients and communities.
