New Cardiovascular Unit at Billings Clinic

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

Billings Clinic announces a new era of cardiovascular care.

After a ribbon cutting, clinic staff and community members took a first look at the John R. Burg Cardiac Center.

The facility has 29 private rooms on the floor and a dedicated space for physical, occupational, and speech therapy.

Medical Director, Scott Millikan, says the new rooms are twice their former size, allowing space for families to take part in patient's healing.

These rooms are larger. They offer families space within the room for them to stay with their patients, their loved ones, all the time. We think that families are an integral part of the care team when people come to the hospital, and so we're looking forward to working with the families and patients, and our staff coming together to help patients heal," said Millikan.

The original unit was built more than three decades ago and was significantly smaller. The new unit is three times the square footage of the original.
