Billings Clinic Not Headed to Big Sky

Posted: Updated:
Big Sky -

Community Medical Center in Missoula announced plans to merge with Billings Clinic but the press conference revealed information about plans for a health clinic in Big Sky.

A community group asked for bids from several hospitals to create a medical facility in Big Sky.

Billings Clinic won that bidding process but Bozeman Deaconess came in a close second.

Today we learned Billings Clinic will not move forward with plans in Big Sky.

Billings Clinic CEO Dr. Nick Wolter said, "Bozeman Deaconess chose to rather quickly announce a groundbreaking and they have moved ahead selecting an architect and a contractor and they have announced a groundbreaking for this spring, so at this point in time Billings Clinic does not have specific plans in Big Sky."

Bozeman Deaconess' Big Sky Medical Center will be located in Big Sky's town center.

In the mean time the merger of Community Medical Center and Billings Clinic will likely take six months and is contingent upon approval from Attorney General Tim Fox.
