Psychiatric Stabilization Unit – Billings Clinic

Billings Clinic | Billings, MT

Billings Clinic is Montana’s largest health care organization and serves a wide region covering not only much of Montana, but also northern Wyoming and the western Dakotas.

Because of the size of the organization’s service area, patients suffering a psychiatric crisis might travel a very long distance to the Billings Clinic emergency department (ED). Then, they often would have to wait many hours before being seen.
