Billings, Montana – Ribbon-cutting ceremony was held for the Multiple Sclerosis Infusion Center at the Regional Neuroscience Center.

Staff from St. Vincent Healthcare joined for the grand opening.

Newest and most advanced MS medicines and treatments will be provided to doctors and patients with the new center.

General Neurologist Kris French said it is very important for their center to stay up to date on treatments, as there is currently no cure for neurological diseases like Multiple Sclerosis.

The center works with 500 patients each year, who will now have more space, time with doctors and access to cutting edge treatments.

“I’m excited to take part in it. My first appointment here is next month so I haven’t had an infusion here yet, but I come in twice a year and it’s about for four hours, so the space here looks awesome, looks like we each have a tv and a recliner. And Nicole, my infusion nurse is awesome. She makes sure we are very well taken care of. So the staff here is amazing,” Monti Wetch-Shules, a St. Vincent MS patient, said.

The new MS Infusion Center was made possible through the support of the St. Vincent Healthcare Foundation, community donors and Jim and Lin Roscoe who helped campaign in a major way.
