For over 20 years, Helena SurgiCenter has been at the heart of the health and well-being of our community. As a leading multi-specialty ambulatory surgery center, we focus on providing a safe, convenient, cost-effective, and high quality alternative to inpatient hospital care.

Helena SurgiCenter first opened in October of 1998 by local physicians who wanted to provide an outstanding outpatient surgical facility for Helena and the greater Montana community. Today, the facility is jointly owned by 14 active Helena surgeons. With over 30 physicians across nine different specialties and a compassionate team of registered nurses, surgical technicians and office staff, Helena SurgiCenter is dedicated to providing superior service and value for patients.

Thanks to technological advances in surgery, 60-70% of today’s surgical procedures can now be performed on an outpatient basis. The advantage of this for patients is that many procedures can now be done in a comfortable, patient-focused environment free from the hassles and expenses often associated with hospital-based care. Lower overall facility fees means lower out-of-pocket costs for most patients compared to a typical hospital-based facility. Patients are also able to be released within hours of surgery to complete their recovery in the comfort of their own home. For surgeons, the facility size and structure allows for more efficient scheduling of patients and less down time between cases.


Patient Focused
We support safe, quality patient care by using a collaborative team approach between the patient, the patient’s family, physicians and our staff. Our office staff is helpful and compassionate with two main priorities: you and your procedure.
Cost Savings
Unlike hospitals that are subject to a multitude of overhead expenses, we offer streamlined processes and a leaner overall structure that allows us to perform your procedure at the same high level of care but at a lower overall cost to patients.
Patients can expect a shorter total procedure time, and because no overnight stay is required, you can recuperate in the comfort of your own home.
Scheduled surgery times are less likely to be delayed or bumped due to the need to provide emergency care, as they may be at hospitals.


Upon arrival at Helena SurgiCenter, you’ll notice a warm, friendly atmosphere, and personal attention from our staff. Because we specialize in outpatient surgery, we can devote individual time and attention to you—to make your visit an enjoyable one. The increased level of personal attention from our staff and warm surroundings also minimizes the stress often associated with surgery. At Helena SurgiCenter, you can expect to be treated with respect, dignity, and compassion from the moment you walk through the door. Our staff takes pride in being knowledgeable, informative, and always willing to go the extra mile to make sure the needs of our patients are met.


As a patient, you have a choice about where your surgical procedures are performed. When you choose Helena SurgiCenter, you will truly get the best of both worlds with the surgical expertise and innovation of a hospital in addition to the convenience and cost savings of an outpatient facility.
