Community-Based Services

St. Peter's Health Community-Bases Services initiative is an approach to healthcare that focuses on addressing the physical, social, and economic factors that impact health and well-being. This approach recognizes that health is determined by a complex interplay of factors, including access to healthcare, quality of life, education, income, and more. Community-based services address these factors by bringing together healthcare providers, social services, and community organizations to provide comprehensive and coordinated care for individuals and families.

By taking a holistic approach to healthcare, St. Peter's Health community-based services seek to improve health outcomes, reduce healthcare costs, and create a healthier, more vibrant community. 

Fred C. Olson Learning and Development Institute

The Fred C. Olson Learning and Development Institute is dedicated to honoring and continuing the work of longtime Helena physician Dr. Fred Olson. The institute leads employee education, training, and development initiatives and manages numerous employee education scholarship programs.

It provides education and training scholarships, including advanced skills training, certifications, associate degrees, undergraduate degrees, and advanced degrees. Recipients of a Fred C. Olson Employee Education Endowed Scholarship receive funds to cover their expenses and are recognized with an award upon successful completion of their education or training program.
