Why Choose CFVH?

Clark Fork Valley Hospital & Family Medicine Network offers a very sophisticated medical environment while maintaining its "small town" feel. With seven hospitalists, a number of specialty outreach providers including orthopedics, a general surgeon, three rural health clinics county wide, a home oxygen service, home health service, hospice service as well as a modern labor and delivery suite, Clark Fork  Valley Hospital projects a larger "footprint" than one would expect of a rural Critical Access Hospital.

As far as location, Plains, located in the scenic Northwest region of Montana, and is the quintessential example of rural, western living.  The Clark Fork of the Columbia River winds gracefully through town settled in a gorgeous mountain valley.

Spend a summer day on the river casting your fly, or on a hike in the Cabinet Mountains. Winter weekends can be full of cross country skiing in the valley, snowmobiling in the wilderness, or downhill skiing at one of the seven resorts within two hours.

The area is also well-known for its outstanding elk, sheep and deer hunting.  Glacier National Park, the “Crown of the Continent”, is only two hours away from four-season enjoyment.

The beautiful Clark Fork River, nearby Flathead Lake and Lake Pend Oreille provide excellent opportunities for the sail boating, water skiing or lake fishing enthusiast.

Excellent schools in a hometown atmosphere.

Close to the "Big" city with Missoula just 75 miles away and 150 miles to Spokane, Washington.
