The Mission of the Beartooth Billings Clinic Foundation is to support Beartooth Billings Clinic and its activities.
This is a broad range, but it allows flexibility in meeting the strategic objectives established by the facility's Governing Board. The Governing Board and Foundation Board agree each year on a specific objective to be addressed through the annual gala—the Beartooth Ball. Historically, a portion of annual Ball proceeds has helped operate the Foundation, while approximately half funds advances and services such as:
- 2005: New Operating Room Table and Anesthesia Machine
- 2006: Beartooth Hospital Children's Center
- 2007: County-Wide Cancer Screening Programs
- 2008: Community Support of Capital Campaign for New Facility (no Ball)
- 2009 Foundation Operational Support to Continue Capital Campaign
- 2010: Trauma and Critical Care Education
- 2011-2014: Endowment Fund to Support Programs and Services
An area in which the Foundation takes special pride is the Dr. James and Juanita Kane Scholarship Fund. Each year, several scholarships are awarded to students – and often to a hospital/clinic staff member – who want to pursue or further develop skills in a medical field. The goal of this scholarship fund is to help ensure that qualified medical practitioners will always be available to help the communities of Carbon County.
