Laboratory Services

Billings Clinic Laboratory is a hospital based reference laboratory dedicated to providing quality testing and outstanding customer service locally and within the region. We offer a community-based approach with the belief that the best patient care is available close to home.

Billings Clinic Laboratory's current service area covers a radius of 350 miles.  The extensive logistics network we have developed allows us to provide excellent services within this radius.  Billings Clinic's focus is to serve the regions of Montana, Northern and Central Wyoming and Western North Dakota.

Quality laboratory testing and excellent customer service set the Billings Clinic Laboratory apart from its competition.

Billings Clinic Laboratory and other community laboratories throughout this area face new challenges in providing laboratory and pathology results of the highest quality. Our laboratory professionals seek new ways to provide reliable, accurate, and cost-effective services to our clinicians.

Billings Clinic Laboratory is pleased to be associated in this effort with Mayo Medical Laboratories. The value of community-based laboratories to the communities they serve is increasingly appreciated. Laboratories play a key role in providing the objective information to enhance medical quality and reduce overall costs.
