In 2008, we unified under RiverStone Health to better represent our comprehensive scope of care.
Our roots may be traced back to 1974 when the Yellowstone City-County Health Department (YCCHD) first opened its doors to provide public health services to the area.
Health, Education, Leadership, and Protection (HELP) have been the cornerstones of our work for the last 40 years.
We at the Yellowstone City-County Health Department (YCCHD) have been at the forefront of public health initiatives to ensure the health and safety of the residents of Yellowstone City and County.
However, RiverStone Health is far more than just a standard municipal health agency.
- More than half of the 20,000 people we treat yearly in our medical and dental clinics do not have health insurance. Our medical facilities are funded partly by federal funding and are affiliated with a more extensive network of Community Health Centers. Because of this support, we can treat everyone, regardless of their means to pay. Our sliding pricing plan is used by those with low incomes and those without health insurance. We also have a school-based health facility at Orchard Elementary School in Billings, which opened in the spring of 2015, and outlying clinics in Bridger and Joliet.
- To address the state’s critical need for family doctors, Montana has established a residency program called the Montana Family Medicine Residency, from which over 70% of graduates remain in the state. Our Family Medicine Residency was Montana’s first graduate medical education program, and we are one of the nation’s first eleven Teaching Health Centers.
- Services like Maternal Child Health and the Nurse-Family Partnership, as well as less well-known ones like WIC, the Women, Infants, and Children supplemental nutrition program, are all part of our Family Health Services, which aims to improve the quality of life for mothers, fathers, and young children.
- Community Health Accreditation Program acknowledges the high quality and compassion of our Hospice Services, which we provide to patients at the end of life (CHAP). In addition to offering in-home care for those with terminal diseases, RiverStone Health is so dedicated to meeting every need that in 2011, they opened a 12-bed hospice residence on the West End of Billings. In a radius of about 200 miles, it is the only facility of its kind.
- Prevention of communicable illnesses, enhancement of health, readiness for public health crises, and protection of the food we eat and the air we breathe all contribute to making our community a better and safer place to live. In light of our efforts, we were included among the first 50 health departments in the country to get accreditation from the Public Health Accreditation Board.
- Deering Clinic, now known as RiverStone Health Clinic, opened its doors to the public in 1984.
- For example: In 1998, Yellowstone City County Health Department was established as Montana’s first health services district.
- A new service delivery team member, Big Sky Hospice (RiverStone Health Hospice Services), has been on board since 1998.
- RiverStone Health acquired the Montana Family Medicine Residency Program in 2005.
Health, Education, Leadership, and Protection are the four pillars around which we build the communities we serve.
By taking an active role in community health projects, challenges, and concerns, we can leverage the government’s might with the private sector’s vision to create a new paradigm for public health.
Nothing has changed about our dedication to delivering first-rate service by reliable personnel.
RiverStone Health… putting you in touch with a brighter tomorrow.

RiverStone Health Patient Portal
Most of Yellowstone County’s uninsured residents go to RiverStone Health Clinic as their first point of medical treatment.
Montana’s family medicine residents acquire valuable training in dealing with low-income patients’ physical and psychological needs at a community health centre because of the residency program’s affiliation with the centre.
More than half of the 15,200 patients seen at RiverStone Health Clinic in 2019 have incomes below the federal poverty line. With their help, we were able to reach 2,300 kids.
In all, we saw 73,225 patients in our medical and dental practices.
Our patient group is so demanding; dealing with them is a pleasure. While some patients have been through unimaginable horrors, they refuse to give up hope. It is a privilege to serve as a guide on their paths to health and fulfilment.
We are more than simply a location to drop in for a quick checkup. Patients, I believe, are given a sense of belonging and acceptance here. I’m thankful to have the opportunity to work with them and the rest of our fantastic team.

Individuals from the Crow and Northern Cheyenne tribes, retirees, single parents, the homeless, those residing in nursing homes, and others make up a portion of our patient population.
We also serve patients at three satellite clinics in small rural villages within a 45-minute drive of Billings, in addition to the urban facility.
All of our clinics, including Bridger, Joliet, and Worden, were the first in eastern Montana to be designated as Patient-Centered Medical Homes by the National Committee for Quality Assurance. Orchard Elementary and Medicine Crow Middle School campuses host our on-campus clinics.
We have three locations for Healthcare for the Homeless, where we treat patients. There are four Billings nursing facilities where we place patients for lengthy or short-term stays.
