About Billings Clinic
Based in Billings, Montana, Billings Clinic is a not-for-profit health care organization, governed by the community, and is the community’s largest employer. Billings Clinic serves patients in Montana, Wyoming and the Western Dakotas.
We have over 280 physicians and non-physician providers who work together to provide coordinated and complete care.
Our 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 we 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.

- A 272-bed hospital including
- 14-suite Family Birth Center with a level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit
- 15-bed Transitional Care Unit

Biillings Clinic Research
The Research Center was founded in 1988 and opened a new state-of-the-art facility on the campus of Billings Clinic in 2002. As the largest clinical research center in a 600-mile radius, the facility has over 22,500 square feet and 25 full-time trained staff in clinical research.
The Research Center is involved in phase I, II, III, and IV clinical research studies working with over 100 providers and their staff who are trained in clinical research. Our affiliation with Billings Clinic allows us to provide clinical research studies of human disease in many different areas including: (but not limited to) nutrition, new drugs, vaccines, biologics (immune system medications), genomics (the study of gene structure), and medical devices
We are involved in research in the following departments at Billings Clinic: cardiology/vascular diseases, endocrine/nutritional, metabolic diseases, internal medicine, pulmonary diseases, rheumatology, osteoarthritis, women's health, ophthalmology, podiatry, vaccines, genomics, and neurology.
We also work with Billings Clinic's seven branch clinics and regional clinics in order to increase the number of physician referrals and bring clinical research to these rural areas. Since 1998, we have participated in more than 250 clinical trials with over 5,000 volunteers (patients with a condition or a disease).
Through research, the Research Center is helping people stay healthy or optimize the treatment of their medical conditions.
