Since opening to the public in December 2015, Big Sky Medical Center has seen
a steady number of patient visits from Big Sky and surrounding communities.
Our clinic now serves an average of 23 patients per day, and hospital services
range from MRI and radiology to emergency room procedures. “There is a growing
need for healthcare for a growing number of people in this community,” Big Sky
resident Robin Stephenson said.
Building the new intensive care unit (ICU) focused on critical care for our growing population of adults and seniors and Southwest Montana’s first NICU for babies in vital need of specialized care that allows families to stay close to home.
Serving our communities’ vulnerable neighbors through mission-driven services and patient financial assistance.
Establishing funds to support new equipment and treatments in cancer care and cardiac care.
Helping accelerate the pace at which new specialties and healthcare services become available in Big Sky, in addition to enabling special equipment purchases and provide for emergency simulations and scenario-based training for BSMC employees.
Bozeman Health and the Big Sky community have been in partnership for over a
decade. Bozeman Health had the foresight to anticipate the eventual need for a 24/7
medical center, so in 2007, it purchased land for a future hospital site in Town Center.
In December, 2015 that partnership produced Big Sky Medical Center, the first
truly new hospital constructed in Montana in decades. The $27-million investment
by Bozeman Health in the Big Sky community is considered a turning point for
residents of southern Gallatin County. Big Sky Medical Center features:
The opening of Big Sky Medical Center is already paying dividends for the rapidly
growing communities of southern Gallatin County:
Bozeman Health knows that the Big Sky Medical Center represents not an
end, but the beginning of a journey to top-notch healthcare for Big Sky and
surrounding communities. The convergence of a rapidly growing population
base, increased tourist visits and the speed of innovation in the healthcare field
necessitates constant investment for the benefit of the community.
As healthcare continues to evolve with unprecedented speed, ongoing innovation
is vital and Big Sky Medical Center’s doctors and administrators need to be
empowered to grow and adapt in the name of great patient care. To address this
need, the Big Sky Medical Center Fund for Excellence and Innovation has been
established. This donor-supported fund will help in the following areas:
The Fund for Excellence & Innovation will allow Big Sky Medical Center to acquire
new leading-edge equipment, to have staff members trained in new techniques,
and to more quickly provide new kinds of treatments to patients that might not
otherwise be available in Big Sky.
Providing a top-quality healthcare facility for the many families and visitors that live, work, and recreate
in Big Sky is just the first step in the process. In order to meet future needs, expand the scope of services
available locally and ensure that highly-trained personnel can serve Big Sky’s medical needs into the next
several decades, philanthropy will play an essential role.
Donating to Big Sky Medical Center’s Fund for Excellence and Innovation is an investment in the future of
Big Sky. The Big Sky spirit is about being forward-looking, forward-thinking and forward-investing. We invite
you to catch the spirit and discuss this initiative with us in greater detail.
Bozeman Health cares deeply for our neighbors in this special place we call home. Please join us as we seek to provide the highest quality care across the communities we proudly serve. Caring Forward: The Campaign for a Healthier Community.
