About Kalispell Regional
Kalispell Regional Medical Center was born in 1910. In August of that year, a group of business men in Kalispell formed a board of directors which became the Kalispell General Hospital Corporation. Hearing of their desire to open a hospital, John Carroll, Catholic bishop of the Helena diocese and after whom Carroll College is named, asked Mother Mary Gertrude at Sacred Heart Convent in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, to consider sending sisters to Montana for that purpose. And so the Corporation entered into a contract with the Sisters of Mercy to construct and operate a new hospital. One of the members, Judge Smith, rented a cottage on the corner of Fourth Avenue and Third Street East to serve as a temporary hospital.
