SCL Health, Now Intermountain Health, Expanding Gynecologic Oncology Care
The gynecologic oncology specialists will begin seeing patients in August at the new Intermountain Health West End Clinic
SCL Health, now Intermountain Health, is excited to announce plans to launch a full-time Gynecologic Oncology practice in Billings to serve the region allowing patients expanded access to advanced gynecologic oncology care and treatment. Three local physicians plan to join the practice with an anticipated start date of early August.
“This is a wonderful opportunity to continue to grow the high-quality women’s services and cancer care that we currently provide to our region,” said Jen Alderfer, president of St. Vincent Healthcare & Montana | Wyoming Market for Intermountain Health. “Women in Montana and Wyoming will now have more access to life-saving treatments closer to home.”
The physicians will see patients at the new Intermountain Health - West End Clinic located at 602 Henry Chapple Street in Billings, which will open in July. In addition to gynecologic oncology services, the new 24,000-square-foot clinic space will offer a new primary care and walk-in clinic that will provide expanded healthcare services to an area of Billings experiencing significant growth. Oncology infusion and radiation oncology treatments will be provided at the St. Vincent Healthcare Cancer Centers of Montana.
Approximately 89,000 U.S. women are diagnosed with gynecologic cancer each year. The five main types of gynecologic cancer are uterine, ovarian, cervical, vaginal, and vulvar. The latest highly specialized approaches to surgery and treatment offer the best hope of recovery for many women.
