Alluvion Health, formerly known as the Community Health Care Center, has officially announced its new name.

In January, Alluvion Health fully separated the health center from Cascade County to become a standalone entity, according to a press release.

Alluvion Health, a federally qualified health center, offers medical, dental, and behavioral health services in different locations throughout Great Falls.

In the last year, Alluvion Health has partnered with Great Falls Public Schools and Belt Public Schools to add school-based health centers in Paris Gibson Education Center, Giant Springs Elementary, and Belt Public School as well as adding additional mental health services at all GFPS secondary school locations.

According to a press release, Alluvion Health has expanded their dental clinic operations to include walk-in hours five days a week.

“Our mission is to create and inspire healthier lives. Accessing care is the first step to achieving our goal, especially primary care services. We want to meet patients where they’re at, create an opportunity for them to access care in a way that is convenient to them,” said Trista Besich, Alluvion Health CEO.

In January, Alluvion purchased the building at 601 1st Ave. North, which formerly housed Family Practice. This is now the clinic’s main site while construction takes place at Alluvion’s future home, 601 Central Ave, also known as the Rocky Mountain Building.

Alluvion Health’s locations:
Main Location: 601 1st Ave. North
Second Location: 115 4th Street South
Dental Clinic: 202 2nd Ave. South, Suite 203 (Renaissance Square Building)

School Based Health Centers:
Medical & Behavioral Health: Paris Gibson Education Center, Giant Springs Elementary School, and Belt School
Behavioral Health only: Great Falls High School, C.M. Russell High School, North Middle School, and East Middle School
