Medical Development Breaks Ground In Great Falls, Mont.


Capital Growth Medvest, a medical developer based in Birmingham, Ala., has recently broken ground on Great Fall Clinic Medical Center’s replacement hospital in Great Falls, Mont. The new 60,000-square-foot multi-specialty medical facility is expected to reach completion in the fall of 2015.

Great Falls Clinic, founded by four general practitioners in 1917, was the first group practice in Montana and the fourth oldest west of the Mississippi River. Today, it strives to meet the needs of roughly 225,000 residents in the seventeen counties it serves. The Great Falls Clinic remains focused on both recruiting and retaining physicians through the delivery of the latest medical technology – and this replacement hospital is positioned to help the clinic continue meeting that goal.

Several Alabama companies are working together to help build the replacement hospital, including Goodwyn, Mills and Cawood, a top-ranked architectural firm; Brasfield & Gorrie, one of the nation’s largest general contractors; and Capital Growth Medvest, with a medical development team handling well over $1 billion in healthcare projects.

The 19-bed hospital, equipped with operating rooms, procedure rooms and emergency room, is estimated to take 15 months to complete.
