Nov. 18, 2020, marked the tenth anniversary of Beartooth Billings Clinic opening their doors at the 2525 North Broadway, Red Lodge location. To celebrate this milestone, Beartooth Billings Clinic Foundation virtually gathered past and present community members that assisted in the capital campaign to fund the state-of-the-art campus now occupied.
The titled “Hats Off” celebration included the production of a prerecorded introduction by Beartooth Billings Clinic governing board president Mitzi Vorachek and ended with Kelley Evans, CEO, toasting to the past, present, and future accomplishments of the Beartooth staff, board members, and community. The entire video, produced by Vivid Northwest Media of Red Lodge, includes impressive views of the quality healthcare staff and facility, and the necessary morphing to become a top critical access hospital in the country. One story involves an account of a recent patient noting the continued care and commitment Beartooth Billings Clinic provides even during a pandemic.
Linda Harris, Director of Foundation and Finance, spearheaded the celebration. “How grateful we are to have had and continue to have the support of our community.  Our current events are showing just how important Beartooth is to our community.  Our donors allow us each day to do everything in our power to deliver the best health care we can.
The video is still receiving positive feedback from friends of the Foundation, old and new:
