Medicine and medical care are top priorities in Billings. No matter what kind of healthcare may be needed, the Billings healthcare service providers have an option to suit a patient’s needs. The city’s medical corridor provides the most advanced healthcare services in the region.
Two fully equipped and modern hospitals, St. Vincent Health Care and the Billings Clinic, offer care from a staff of doctors and healthcare specialists who have received national attention for their medical achievements.
There are also 40 medical clinics, some that also focus on homeopathic care. Hundreds of physicians offer quality care in every major medical specialty. A complete range of medical services, surgical services, and emergency care are available in the heart of the city.
The Billings Clinic
Billings Clinic is Montana’s largest health care system serving Montana, Wyoming and the western Dakotas. A not-for-profit organization led by a physician CEO, Billings Clinic is governed by a board of community members, nurses and physicians. Billings Clinic is an integrated multi-specialty group practice with a 304-bed hospital and Level II trauma center. Billings Clinic has more than 4,700 employees, including more than 550 physicians and non-physician providers and advanced practitioners offering more than 80 specialties.
Billings Clinic’s vision is to be a national leader in providing the best clinical quality, patient safety, service and value. Shared electronic medical records are one way they have worked towards that goal.
The electronic medical record helps both primary care physicians and specialists know the patients’ entire health history, the drugs that have been prescribed, and test results. This improves the overall quality, safety and cost of care.
