Who We Support
Beartooth Billings Clinic is a community-owned hospital and clinic. It receives no tax funding, nor does it receive subsidies from any other healthcare institution. For more than 60 years, Beartooth has provided a variety of critically important health care services to all of Carbon County – an area slightly smaller than the state of Delaware but with a far-flung population of less than 10,000.
Rural health is a unique world, unlike any other. Healthcare in general poses problems that require innovation, resources, and energetic solutions – but rural health is a cause served by the truly dedicated.
This means that support from donors like you is more important than ever. Rest assured that your gifts are stewarded with the highest commitment to best practices and accounting controls. The hospital/clinic and the Foundation both receive an annual audit. All donors are welcome to visit the Foundation Office between 9:00 and 4:00 MST for further information, or to learn more about making a difference at Beartooth Billings Clinic. Beartooth – where you can touch lives and know you’ve made a difference.
How We Support
Our Mission is to support community healthcare through Beartooth Billings Clinic.
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. Here is a list of previous objectives:
2019: Ultrasound Services and Endowment Fund
2018: Outpatient Surgical Services and Endowment Fund
2017: Cardiac Care and Endowment Fund
2016: Dr. James and Juanita Kane Scholarship and Endowment Fund
2015: Dr. James and Juanita Kane Scholarship and Endowment Fund
2011-2014: Endowment Fund to Support Programs and Services
2010: Trauma and Critical Care Education
2009: Foundation Operational Support to Continue Capital Campaign
2008: Community Support of Capital Campaign for New Facility (no Ball)
2007: County-Wide Cancer Screening Programs
2006: Beartooth Hospital Children’s Center
2005: New Operating Room Table and Anesthesia Machine
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 is to help ensure that qualified medical practitioners will always be available to help the communities of Carbon County.
