The Broadwater Health Center Board of Directors has voted unanimously to pursue a partnership with Billings Clinic to help stabilize and advance local health care for the community of Townsend and Broadwater County.  “Our Board recognized the depth and breadth of experience Billings Clinic has as a Montana-based health system with multiple affiliated critical access hospitals,” said Brad Campbell, Chair of Broadwater Health Center’s Board of Directors.  “They have an impressive and proven track record of delivering on their commitment to help sustain care in smaller communities like ours – at a time when rural hospitals across the country are threatened.” 

A community governed not-for-profit organization, Billings Clinic is Montana’s largest health system and is a member of the Mayo Clinic Care Network. Billings Clinic is affiliated with twelve critical access hospitals in Montana and northern Wyoming and is a co-owner of Community Medical Center in Missoula.  They also have branch clinics in multiple locations and are adding to their existing clinics in Bozeman with planned construction of the first phase of a new medical center on a 58 acre site in west Bozeman.  “Billings Clinic has great success keeping health care in rural communities — bringing in specialists to provide care close to home and helping return patients to their home communities after a hospitalization,” Campbell shared.  Keith Cook, Billings Clinic board member, stated, “One thing we know will ensure BHC’s future success is continued community engagement and involvement.  We look forward to working closely with the BHC board and all community members to help us partner for success.”
