Their primary and specialty care clinics are located at Billings Clinic downtown, Billings Clinic Heights, and Billings Clinic West, as well as in Bozeman, Columbus, Miles City, Montana, Red Lodge, and Cody, Wyoming.

Billings Clinic Hospital is a 304-bed hospital which includes a 20-suite family birth center, a 15-bed transitional care unit, and Level II trauma center. In 2013 AARP The Magazine named the Billings Clinic one of the safest hospitals in America.
The Billings Clinic was founded by Dr. Arthur J. Movius, who started his Billings medical practice in 1911. In 1915, after practicing on his own, Movius had Dr. J.H. Bridenbaugh join him as an assistant. Bridenbaugh operated and managed obstetrics and began working with a ground-breaking device, the x-ray machine. During World War I, Bridenbaugh joined the military, where he received training in radiology. After returning from the war, Bridenbaugh incorporated diagnostic x-rays and radiation therapy into his practice.
The Billings Clinic was purchased in 2008 by the Mayo Clinic. Also acquired in the purchase was the Sidney Health Center.
By 1930, five other physicians joined Movius and Bridenbaugh, forming the Movius-Bridenbaugh Clinic, which specialized in obstetrics, fractures, and trauma. In 1939, the clinic conceived a plan to recruit new physicians as partners of the hospital, changing the name to The Billings Clinic. Construction began on a new clinic across the street from Billings Deaconess Hospital in 1950.
The Billings Clinic is the largest medical provider in the region. The clinic offers 50+ medical specialties and has facilities at Billings, Bozeman, Colstrip, Columbus, Miles City, Red Lodge, and Cody, Wyoming.
