Billings Clinic Patient Heart Story

TJ Hanes - heart attack survivor story

The John R. Burg MD Cardiac Center at Billings Clinic brings together services for prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of heart disease. We offer the region’s most comprehensive and longest running heart program.

Our patient-centered care team is made up of board-certified cardiologists, surgeons, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, technologists and support staff.

Our Cardiac Center, located at Billings Clinic Downtown, 801 N. 29th St., provides outpatient cardiology and diagnostic services.  The Heart Failure Clinic is also located in the Cardiac Center.  

Dedicated teams of heart specialists

Our cardiovascular surgeons provide full cardiovascular and thoracic surgical services, including beating heart and minimally invasive cardiac surgery.

The Cardiac Center Care Team, led by your primary cardiologist, relies on each team members’ unique expertise to address your specific care needs.

Regardless if our patients are being treated for conditions of the heart, arteries, veins or valves, or with cardiac surgery, we strive to provide clear communication, caring relationships, and education that enable patients to reach their highest level of wellness.

For Referring Physicians

Referrals are welcome and we believe that your input as a referring doctor is essential to providing quality health care and patient satisfaction.

For your convenience, we offer same day appointments with our providers so we can schedule the appointment with the physician of your choice at the next available time.

Innovative technology

In the hospital, our physicians perform cardiovascular interventions and electrophysiology procedures in our comprehensive Cardiac Catheterization Lab.

The Cardiac Center offers patients convenience, easy access and coordination of care with referring physicians. In addition to services in Billings, we also provide services to rural communities in Montana and Wyoming through our outreach clinics.
