A bit about us:

We are creating a healthy and hopeful Montana through specialized psychiatric care for children and adolescents along with a nationally recognized genetics program providing care for all ages.

We became a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital in 1987 and remains the only CMN hospital in Montana. Every penny of every dollar that is raised during a CMN fundraiser supports us directly. Donated funds help cover costs for Montana families who cannot afford to.

In addition, we first received Joint Commission accreditation in 1992, and has been continuously accredited since that time. Our education program is an accredited year-round school for elementary, middle, and high school students. Our team of educators are certified in special education and includes six teachers, six teaching assistants, a speech pathologist, a school psychologist, and a principal.

Why join us?

Stress and adversity are universal to the human experience. To heal from this adversity, we utilize the Sanctuary Model® as a blueprint for clinical and organizational culture. This cultural model promotes safety and recovery from adversity through the active creation of a trauma informed community.

Through Sanctuary, we have refined and operationalized our values.
We believe these values are only meaningful if they are also reflected in our practices.
We are committed to practicing these beliefs.

Nonviolence – Being safe physically, emotionally, morally, and socially regardless of gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, countries of origin, abilities, or income levels.

Emotional Intelligence – Managing our feelings so we do not hurt ourselves or others.

Social Learning – Respecting and sharing the ideas of our teams.

Open Communication – Saying what we mean and not being mean when we say it.

Social Responsibility – Together we accomplish more, everyone is accountable and makes a contribution.

Democracy – Shared governance; ideas are shared but not everyone gets a vote.

Growth and Change – Creating hope for ourselves, our patients, families, organization, and Montana.
