One Health Moves into Remodeled Crowley Building
August 23, 2022
HARDIN, MONT. – One Health — a Montana-based Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) that offers integrated primary care, behavioral health care, pharmacy, and dental services — will start seeing patients in its new Lewistown clinic on Tuesday, August 30. The new clinic is in the historic Crowley Block located at 311 West Main Street.
“The Crowley Block clinic in downtown Lewistown will allow us to expand services, increase efficiency and improve the patient experience,” said Dr. David Mark, CEO of One Health. “We are seeing patients in the new building for medical and behavioral health appointments starting August 30. We hope to open our on-site pharmacy this fall and provide dental services by the end of the year.”
One Health provides in-person and virtual healthcare services to anyone in need, from young children to adults. As a federally funded Community Health Center, One Health offers discounted fees to qualifying patients based on income and family size.
The brick and terra cotta Crowley Block cost about $60,000 to build in 1913. After completion, the building with 80' of main street frontage housed Sweitzer’s department store. The second floor was leased office space and the third was designated for lodge functions and community dances. The building continued to be used primarily for retail purposes throughout its history until it became vacant in 2016.
One Health purchased the Crowley Block in 2019 and worked with High Plains Architects to rehabilitate the building. The remodel of the Crowley Block was a true team effort with many organizations involved including the City of Lewistown, M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust, Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Snowy Mountain Development, Montana Department of Commerce, moFi, and First Interstate Bank.
With triple the space of its current location, the lower level and first floor will be used for primary care, obstetrics and behavioral health services, dental services and a new on-site pharmacy.
Homeword, a Missoula-based nonprofit, is working to convert the building’s second and third floors, which have been vacant since the 1940s, into affordable housing units for low-income families.
The new location and expansion of services will allow One Health to reach thousands of additional patients from Lewistown and surrounding communities. The health center is also expected to create 20 full-time equivalent jobs.
The current One Health Lewistown clinic located at 406 1st Avenue South will be closed on Friday, August 26 and Monday, August 29 for the move to the new clinic. Starting August 30, all patients will be seen at the new Crowley Block clinic.
A grand opening celebration of the new clinic is planned for October. To make an appointment or to learn more about the current services provided, call 406.535.6545 or visit onechc.org.
