Our History




Nestled at the foot of the scenic Cabinet Mountains lies one of the most technologically advanced rural hospitals in the Northwest. For over 60 years, Cabinet Peaks Medical Center in Libby, MT is committed to our mission of providing quality, compassionate care to those who live in, play in or are just passing through Lincoln County, MT.

Our organization was formed in 1952 with the backing of community members that were affiliated with the J. Neils Lumber Company and the local St. John Lutheran Church. The church allowed the hospital founders to use their 501c3 status until the hospital received its own. The St. John's Lutheran name was retained in recognition of the congregation's support.

Since 1952, we have been your lifeline to healthcare services, assuring your family's medical care is in good hands. Our hospital has changed its face many times over the years, but through it all, our highly skilled staff has never lost sight of the importance of our patient's care and comfort.

In January of 2014, your local community hospital received a complete makeover when a new replacement facility was built across the street from the St. John's Lutheran Hospital building. With that new building came a new name and Cabinet Peaks Medical Center was born.

We continue today as a Montana Charitable Public Benefit Corporation providing healthcare to all people who have critical needs without regard to their race, religion, gender, physical or mental condition, or ability to pay.

Through the years, Cabinet Peaks Medical Center has served the many residents and visitors of the area. We have worked hard to expand our services to provide more local procedures and testing for our area residents. Even those who choose to go to other facilities for elective or scheduled care can still depend on Cabinet Peaks Medical Center to be here in case of an emergency. Additionally, whether your healthcare provider's office is located here in Lincoln County, or out of the area, our advanced technology and vast service offerings allow your provider to schedule your exams here at home and still receive your results in a timely fashion. We are truly a community hospital that has a responsibility to each and every person in our service area, and we take that responsibility seriously.
