The new Bozeman location of Billings Clinic has been under construction for the last two years; now, the doors are ready to open to the public on Tuesday, Sept. 13.

“With a project this size you know it’s going to take time,” says President of Billings Clinic Foundation, Jim Duncan.

A long time coming for Billings Clinic, adding services to a fast-growing portion of town located off East Valley Center Road, just south of Interstate 90.

“We want to help meet the growing healthcare needs of Bozeman,” says Duncan.

Staff who had been working in remote locations will now be under one roof.

“A friend of mine that I fly fish with, I saw the opportunity to continue my outreach and collaboration,” says Chair of Surgical Specialties, Dr. Andrew Rice.

“Just in general staffing is a challenge, we’ve had good response,” says Duncan.

They say they will still work with Bozeman Health on areas such as emergencies and labor and deliveries.

“We’re here to add to the mix and here to collaborate with the existing providers and care teams,’ says Duncan.

A grand opening ceremony takes place for the public on Oct. 15. Doctor Rice says he's looking forward to seeing patients and his coworkers starting Tuesday.

“To have my colleagues be able to run down the hall and ask a question,” says Rice.

The surgery center will open its doors by October, just in time for the grand opening ceremony.
