in the Butte community and surrounding areas

Butte Native Wellness Center (BNWC) is the newest Urban Indian Health Care Clinic to serve Butte and the surrounding areas. Our goal is to provide competent, effective and professional care to American Indians and Alaska Natives (AI/AN) in a culturally relevant setting.

Urban Indian Health Programs (UIHPs) have a long history in Montana and BNWC is one of 41 located throughout the United States and is incorporated as a non-profit 501 (c)(3) community-based organization. The purpose of the urban Indian health centers is to make outpatient health services accessible to urban Indians directly or through referral. Our focus is on AI/AN who are living in our service area who want access to quality primary, mental health or substance use recovery services. BNWC is a welcoming place for people to come together as Indian people to practice and preserve their culture.

About Our Future

BNWC is forging a new future that incorporates the best evidence-based practices in health care including: responding to COVID-19, the Opioid Crisis in our state, and the most up-to-date treatment options for chronic diseases. BNWC is committed to working in partnership with the AI/AN community using a people-centered approach to improve access to health and wellness throughout the service area.
