Emergency Services

We have two, full-service emergency departments in our health system. Both are DNV-GL certified for safety and quality of patient care. Bozeman Health Deaconess Hospital has a 27-bed, 25-room, Level III Verified Trauma Center, and is staffed by board-certified physicians, mid-level practitioners and registered nurses 24 hours a day. Meeting the demand of a growing community, our emergency department has over 30,000 visits a year.

As a Level III Trauma Center, we have 24-hour availability of our trauma team, which encompasses members of the OR, ER, anesthesia, respiratory therapy, pharmacy, lab and radiology departments. This team can be assembled and ready even prior to the injured patient's arrival in the hospital. Our trauma department rigorously reviews all of our trauma cases and meets monthly to discuss aspects of care and review advances in trauma education and practice.

Bozeman Health Deaconess Hospital Emergency Services has earned a three-year certificate as a Primary Stroke Center based on the guidelines of the Brain Attack Coalition and recommendations from the American Stroke Association.

Big Sky Medical Center emergency services are available 24/7, year-round. The emergency department has six treatment rooms, with two rooms equipped specifically for trauma cases and one for patient observation. We treat injuries and illnesses as well as stabilize trauma. A helipad for air ambulance transport is on-site.
