Thank you Dr. Ortiz
The Colstrip Medical Center would like to thank Dr. Jose Ortiz for his 20 years of service to the clinic and community! We congratulate him and wish him the very best in his transition to Beartooth Billings Clinic in Red Lodge. Among many of his accomplishments at CMC, Dr. Ortiz was instrumental in establishing Colstrip Medical Center as the first clinic in the state to receive a trauma receiving facility according the Montana Trauma Systems. He also played a large role in transitioning CMC from paper medical record to electronic health record system in 2006. Colstrip Medical Center was one of the first in the state to accomplish this task.
