Welcome to the Billings Area of the Indian Health Service
The Billings Area Indian Health Service (IHS) provides health care services to more than 70,000 American Indian and Alaska Native people in Montana and Wyoming. These services are delivered through six IHS-operated Service Units, three Tribally operated health departments and four Urban Indian Programs.
The Billings Area is committed to building strong partnerships with local Tribal governments, Tribal communities and Native Americans. Often working through formal consultation processes coordinated by the Rocky Mountain Tribal Leaders Council and meetings with Tribal Councils and Tribal Leaders at the local level, the Billings Area strives to improve the health status of its patients alongside the Governing Boards responsible for the operations of each of its health care facilities.
While each health care facility is unique, all Billings Area facilities are either accredited through the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations or the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care. They also meet the Conditions of Participation by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
The dedicated staff of the Billings Area strive daily to improve the quality of health care delivery, through its Service Units comprised of hospitals and clinics, preventive health and outreach services, alcohol treatment centers, dental and eye care facilities and air and ground emergency transportation. Supporting the staff efforts, the Billings Area Leadership is accessible and responsive to those it serves, the Tribal Leaders and collaborating health care partners.
