2021 Billings Clinic Classic Benefiting a State-of-the-Art Neonatal Intensive Care Unit

Billings Clinic Foundation is filled with gratitude to announce that the 2021 Billings Clinic Classic events and donations have reached the $2.8 million mark with the announcement of a $1.5 million gift from the Dick and Karen McComish Family.   

Billings Clinic is Montana’s largest locally owned and governed health care organization, serving Montana, Wyoming and the western Dakotas. As a not-for-profit organization, it is only through the support of local communities across the region that they're able to continue to expand and innovate the high-quality care every person deserves.  

Billings Clinic Foundation's goal is to raise the remaining $650,000 for the new $3.5 million NICU by Christmas. Please take a couple of minutes to review this video link to learn more about how these dollars will benefit this important cause.  

Billings Clinic is forever grateful for the unwavering support of its sponsors, donors, volunteers and community members, who truly make the Classic possible, especially during these uncommon times.

Below are additional tributes to the dedicated sponsors, patrons, volunteers and classic team.

NICUOur Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) opened 22 years ago, and since then, technology and the delivery of care have changed dramatically. One of the biggest changes over the years has been the increasing integration of families into the care of their babies. There is evidence that parents are the “active ingredient” and when they are present, the outcomes are improved, costs are reduced and there is greater parent and staff satisfaction.

Neonatology services and subspecialties are more sophisticated than ever before. We are in desperate need of a redefined space to continue to deliver world class care to the tiniest of patients while allowing for the best family experience. Our philosophy of care is centered on mother and baby together, supported by family.
