Brief History


Founded in 2002, Yellowstone Surgery Center is owned and operated jointly by 50 independent physicians and SCL Health. It offers patients the opportunity to undergo outpatient surgical procedures and pain services in a warm and friendly environment. In 2005 the 23-Hour Overnight Stay Program was added with great success. Two years later 6,000 square feet was added to the downtown location, expanding the facility to 23,000 square feet.

In 2008, Yellowstone Surgery Center joined Ortho Montana and SCL Health to become the third partner of AMP, Athletic Medicine & Performance. This collaboration provides sports medicine services in the communities of Southeast Montana since 1991. The AMP staff includes Sports Physicians, Athletic Trainers and Rehabilitation Specialists.

In January of 2017, Yellowstone Surgery Center opened the doors to the second location at the Montana Ambulatory Care Campus (MACC), located off Zoo Drive Exit on I-90. Yellowstone Surgery Center West is a collaborative effort between Yellowstone Surgery Center, Ortho Montana and SCL Health. The West location at 9,000 square feet specializes in only total joint replacements. In 2021 the MACC was renamed the Montana Hip & Knee Center. 

Yellowstone Surgery Center is fortunate to utilize state-of-the-art equipment and have a multi-specialty surgical staff. This includes providing surgeries for pediatrics in need of ENT and some orthopedics as part of our YSC Kids program.
