Two Bozeman Urgent Care Clinics Join Bozeman Health

03/03/2016

Bozeman Health is pleased to announce a new joint venture with Bozeman Urgent Care Center, 1006 W. Main St., and Family Doctors’ Urgent Care, 120 N. 19th St., which now are operating as Bozeman Health Urgent Care. The plan is to have similar services in Belgrade once the new Belgrade Clinic facility opens in mid-2016.

“As we strive to improve access to health care across the region, we added urgent care services to our integrated health system,” said Chris Darnell, Vice President of Bozeman Health Medical Group. “In response to expressed community needs and wants, we expanded healthcare options in the valley.”

The benefit of Bozeman Health Urgent Care is that they are open seven days a week, walk-ins are welcome, and no appointment is necessary. The clinics are staffed by qualified physicians and advanced practitioners. Patients of all ages are welcome. This option makes sense when patients cannot get a needed same-day appointment with their regular provider, do not have a medical issue serious enough to warrant an emergency room visit, and/ or don’t have a regular medical provider but need to be seen sooner.

Darnell noted that Urgent Care does not take the place of traditional primary care; rather, it should complement such services. In December, all Bozeman Health facilities will convert to a fully integrated electronic health record system. That means a regular provider can see what care their patient received during an Urgent Care visit, and Urgent Care providers can see the patient’s existing medical status before offering care, thus establishing continuity of care.

Additionally, our Urgent Care has laboratory and imaging services, and accepts most insurance.
