Community Medical Merges with Billings Clinic

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS, Mont. -

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 at a close second. Last week, we learned Billings Clinic will not move forward with plans in Big Sky. "Bozeman Deaconess rather quickly chose to move forward by hiring an architect and having a groundbreaking, so at this point in time Billings Clinic does not have specific plans in Big Sky," Dr. Nick Wolter said.

According to organizers, the partnership agreement includes commitments to continue CMC's charity, care services, and mental education programs. The merger could take up to six months, and is contingent upon approval from Attorney General, Tim Fox.
