SCL Health Medical Group Breaks Ground on Medical Building

SCL Health, now Intermountain Healthcare, will offer new primary care, retail pharmacy, and walk-in clinic services in West End.

SCL Health Medical Group, now Intermountain Healthcare, officially kicked off construction of a new two-story 63,000 square foot medical building in Billing’s West End at a groundbreaking ceremony on Monday, July 25, 2022. The development’s new 24,000 square foot clinic space will offer a new primary care, retail pharmacy and walk-in clinic that will provide expanded healthcare services to an area of Billings that is experiencing significant growth.

“Our mission is to bring primary and specialty care to Montanans when and where they need it,” said Lee Syphus, Vice President of SCL Health Medical Group in Montana. “That’s why we’re growing our Medical Group practice across the state, and we’re excited to provide this growing community with easier access to care.”

The new clinic will offer primary care services by appointment on weekdays, plus walk-in care open 365 days a year with no appointment necessary. Roughly five family medicine providers, five walk-in providers and three internal medicine specialists will make up the full-time medical staff to start, with a total of 10 internal medicine specialists planned. The clinic space will also offer a convenient retail pharmacy, a one-stop shop where patients can access care and pick up prescriptions at the same time.

Additionally, SCL Health uses patient-friendly tools that allow online scheduling and check-in, which makes it easy to get care when needed, whether it’s planned or unplanned.

“West End is the fastest-growing area of Billings, and we’re proud to be a part of building out essential services for this community,” said Jake Dinnen, Senior Vice President for healthcare developer PMB.

“It’s also the area of town with the least access to primary care services,” said Syphus. “Identifying and addressing these gaps in care is core to our mission and our promise to deliver high-quality, comprehensive care close to home.”
