Fallon Medical Complex
The beautiful, small town of Baker is one of Montana's best kept secrets. Those of who live here wouldn’t trade it for the world. Among the very fine folks who have chosen to live here are the excellent providers, employees, and volunteers of Fallon Medical Complex (FMC). Employing about 110 people, FMC is the largest employer in Fallon County, infusing millions dollars a year in wages and salaries into the community. With an average tenure of nearly 10 years, the employees have both the knowledge and the expertise to provide for the area’s essential healthcare needs. From the Critical Access Hospital with its 24-hour emergency care, to the physician clinic with its four full-time providers, to the newly-renovated long-term care center, they are often told that they have much more to offer than other towns their size.
No matter which direction you look in Baker, you will see stretches of scenery painted with golden fields and sandstone, arched horizon to horizon with the big, beautiful, blue sky. Drive 25 miles south of Baker to see Medicine Rocks State Park. You'll understand why dinosaur bones have been found near Baker when you see the honey-combed sandstone rock formations, carved by time, water, and wind. The Montana Fish Wildlife and Park campground at the park is open year round and offers camping for trailers up to 20 feet.
