Heart Care

Coronavirus and
Your Heart

Although most of us are worried about the new coronavirus, it is important that you do not ignore heart symptons,
especially if you have a heart condition
.

Getting care is critical.


Patients undergoing an elective procedure will need to have a COVID-19 test done 4-6 business days before their procedure. For your convenience, we opened a curbside COVID-19 Pre-Procedural Testing Center where you can have the test performed from your car The Center is located at N. Broadway and 8th Ave. N outside near SameDay Care. Your care team will schedule a time for you to have your test done at the Center. Testing samples are sent to Mayo Clinic for analysis and take about four to six business days for results. Patients will need to self-quarantine for the period of time between the test sample being collected and the date of their procedure. Thank you for taking this important step to protect yourself, our care team, and other patients.

This Center is specifically for patients scheduled for a procedure who do not have symptoms of COVID-19. Symptomatic patients can call Healthline at (406) 255-8400 or 1-800-252-1246.

Heart and Vascular Program at Community Medical Center in Missoula

Billings Clinic has partnered with Community Medical Center to provide full-time interventional and clinical cardiology services, including a catheterization lab with 24/7 coverage for STEMIs (ST-Elevation Myocardial Infarctions, or heart attacks that occur as a result of a complete blockage), a cardiology outpatient rehabilitation unit and cardiac ultrasound services. Patients will have the opportunity to receive interventional therapies using only radial artery access (through the wrist), for both heart and vascular disease. Additionally, the program will provide outreach services in Ronan and rural communities throughout Western Montana.

Care at Billings Clinic Heart and Vascular at CMC is led by Dr. Robert Minor and Dr. Douglas Waldo, two skilled and experienced interventional cardiologists, working alongside CMC’s professional team of nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses, technicians, therapists and support staff. Both Billings Clinic and CMC anticipate ongoing expansion within this program to meet the growing needs of the region it serves.
