Providing quality health care for AI/AN people is the primary goal of the Billings Area IHS. The health care facilities have been successfully accredited through the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations, Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care, or meet the Conditions of Participation by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. The Director of the Billings Area serves as the chairperson of the health facilities governing body to ensure the efficient and effective management of the facilities operated with funds provided by the Federal government.
The Billings Area IHS is committed to building a strong partnership with tribal governments, tribal communities, and Indian people residing in the Billings Area service delivery area. Through the formal consultation process coordinated by the Montana-Wyoming Tribal Leaders Council and meetings with tribal councils and tribal leaders, the Area is joining together to improve the health status of our patients and members of our tribal communities.
The committed and dedicated staff of the Billings Area IHS work every day to improve the quality of care and increase access in a fair and accountable manner for those we serve.
