Billings Clinic announces plans to become Level I Trauma CenterBillings Clinic Advancement to Trauma Level 1

Will be region’s first Level I center; $30 million campaign is Billings Clinic Foundation’s largest ever

Billings Clinic has announced that it is pursuing Level I Trauma Center designation, a distinction that will elevate lifesaving care in the region, create better patient outcomes and ensure 24/7 trauma care is available through a multidisciplinary team.

“This is a transformational effort that will increase the level of lifesaving trauma care for patients and families across Montana and Wyoming,” said Billings Clinic CEO Scott Ellner, DO, FACS. “Level I is the gold standard for trauma care and aligns with Billings Clinic’s commitment to innovation in quality care, safety, education, and health care research. We already provide outstanding trauma services, and this will lead to even better outcomes for trauma patients. It will help rural facilities treat more patients locally, and, most importantly, it will keep people closer to home to receive this excellent standard care when they need it.”

In support of achieving this monumental investment in trauma care for the region, Billings Clinic Foundation is kicking off a $30 million capital campaign, the largest in Billings Clinic’s history. The Foundation has already secured $13 million in pledges from three generous supporters to start the fundraising campaign. This includes a gift of $7 million from the Philip N. Fortin Foundation, a $1 million gift from Tim and Carmen Sheehy and an anonymous $5 million gift.

Billings Clinic and Zoo Montana partnershipZoo Montana

Taking care of a chronically ill child is one of the most demanding and difficult tasks parents can face. Thanks to our new local partnership, funded through an MDU Resources grant, Billings Clinic pediatric patients and families can have the ability for a hands-on experience with zoo animals.

Scientific research has proven that animals have a positive and therapeutic effect on humans. Through partnering with our good friends at Zoo Montana, pediatric patients and families may have an incredible experience with their favorite animal.

This partnership includes zoo visits for pediatric patients and families. We hope to grow the program to where Billings Clinic kids can experience the zoo from the Bob and Penni Nance Inpatient Pediatric Unit. Philanthropy is the key factor in allowing this experience to happen.
