The Veterans Health Administration awarded a contract on January 30th for a new Community Living Center in Miles City, Montana.


The new CLC will take approximately 18 months to construct and is expected to open in the Fall of 2025. 


“We are pleased to announce the new Community Living Center is coming to Miles City,” said Duane Gill, Montana VA Health Care System’s Interim Executive Director. “Montana Veterans deserve and have earned the right to receive the highest quality of care. For those Veterans who are needing nursing home level of care, Montana VA Health Care System is excited to announce that we will soon be able to provide that care in this new, state-of-the-art, modern facility.” 


The new CLC facility will be approximately 18,000 Sq ft. The new facility is authorized to hold up to 17 beds as well as 35 parking spots. 


The contract has a Total Award Value of $22.5 Million. The new facility construction is estimated at more than $6 million and will host a variety of services to include: clinical staff (including an MD), Nursing, Veteran Transportation Service, Social Work, Primary Care, Pharmacy, Physical Therapy, Recreational Therapy, Nutrition and Food, and Chaplain Services. 


The new facility, located at 2300 Wilson Street, will be leased by the Montana VA for the next 20 years and will serve Veterans across the state. 


The current Miles City CLC has approximately a dozen residents. Once the new facility is opened, residents will be moved to the new location with no loss in care or services. Then, the currently CLC location will be transferred to Custer County. 


Montana VA serves over 47,000 enrolled Veterans across Montana—an area roughly 147,000 square miles in size. Veterans are cared for by a staff of 1,400 at 18 sites of care across the state.  One third of Montana VA employees are Veterans.  


Veterans can connect to their VA healthcare records, information, and message their VA care teams 24 hours a day through the MyHealtheVet patient portal. Montana VA information, updates, and events are available on the Montana VA website and Facebook page.
