Bridgercare’s New Clinic

Bridgercare’s New Clinic

Two weeks ago, we closed for 4 days to make the move from our location of over 30 years in the Medical Arts Building to our new location at 1288 N 14th Street! Both our Bridgercare staff and patients are thrilled with the new clinic, and we owe a huge debt of gratitude to all those who helped make this dream a reality.

Here is everything you need to know about the new clinic: 

  • Our new address is 1288 N 14th Ave (Bozeman), across from Kenyon Noble on Oak Street.
  • The new clinic is DOUBLE the size of the old space.
  • Over a 10 year period, Bridgercare saved $1 million to help build a new clinic.
  • Out of a total of $2.4 million dollars, we only have $230,000 left to raise and every dollar is matched by an anonymous donor.
  • 88% of the donations made to our new clinic were $100 or less, making this a true community effort.
  • Our patients want this new clinic just as much as we do, and in the last 10 months, they have collectively contributed over $30,000 to make this happen! 

Our new clinic improvements…

  • 10 exam rooms, 4 of which are large enough for procedures (verses 2 at our old clinic)
  • Significantly increased sound proofing to protect patient privacy
  • Reliable plumbing and heating
  • Windows in exam rooms for better lighting and fresh air
  • Extensive, private parking for patient ease
  • Located next to a Steamline bus stop for increased access
  • Large building sign to increase visibility and help patients locate Bridgercare

What would a new facility mean for our patients?

  • Expansion of services:
    • Endometrial biopsy and cervical polyp removal
    • Vasectomy (permanent contraception for men)
    • Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) exams for victims of sexual assault
    • LEEP treatments for cervical cancer prevention
  • Community outreach and educational offerings hosted in our own Community Room
  • Financial stability:
    • Bridgercare will save $30,000 each year through clinic ownership!
    • These savings will be allocated toward direct patient services
    • A larger facility will allow us to serve more patients and increase revenue overall
