Billings: Health Care
Billings provides the main medical services for a four-state area, with state-of-the-art equipment and highly skilled personnel. The community is served by nearly 500 physicians and dentists. Most of the health care facilities are concentrated in a 114-acre medical corridor that encompasses both of the city's major hospitals and 20 other health-related facilities.
Billings Deaconess Hospital, part of the Deaconess-Billings Clinic Health System, is a 272-bed Level II trauma center with general care and specialized services that include a cardiac care center, cancer services, an intensive care unit, the Kidney Center, a psychiatric center, pulmonary services, Women's Resource Center, occupational health and wellness, orthopedics and sports medicine, and a Research Institute. In 2004 ground was broken on a $27 million expansion to the hospital's Regional Emergency and Trauma Center.
A 302-bed Level II trauma center, the St. Vincent Hospital and Health Center is operated by the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth and provides comprehensive inpatient and out-patient services, special services for women and seniors, and expertise in cardiology, orthopedics, general internal medicine, pediatrics, emergency and trauma, neurosciences, rehabilitation, neonatology, and oncology.
Other medical facilities in Billings are the Northern Rockies Cancer Center, Rimrock Foundation, which provides treatment for addictive disorders such as chemical dependency, co-dependency, compulsive gambling, and eating disorders, and several mental health facilities.
