Pediatric Services at Bozeman Health

WELL-CHILD CHECKS AND SCREENINGS

All children should have regular well-child checks. Typically, we like to see your baby after birth while in the hospital and regularly through age two—at age three weeks, and then at two, four, six and nine months. In their second year, we like to see your child at 12 and 18 months. From age two and up, we hope to see your child annually. These recommendations can be modified by you and your pediatrician if there are concerns or special needs that should be addressed.

SPORTS PHYSICALS

Sports physicals serve dual purposes as your child grows older. They allow us to visit with them about other issues that may be affecting them through their pre-teen and teenage years while ensuring they’re physically capable of participating in athletics.

URGENT AND SAME DAY CARE

When your child needs urgent attention, we will accommodate you right away. In the case of an emergency, a pediatrician is available for consultation.

And, during business hours, we also have a nurse available to answer your questions over the phone when an appointment is not necessary.

PEDIATRIC THERAPY

Bozeman Health Pediatric Therapy provides services based on evidence-based treatment interventions. Our team of experienced therapists specialize in pediatrics and have extensive training in unique areas to better serve our patients. They work as a multi-disciplinary team, with children and their families, in order to optimize development and independence.

  • Occupational therapy helps children build and develop skills at their “jobs,” to play, learn and socialize. If they are having issues with these activities, this specialized therapy will provide solutions and practice to build the skills needed.
  • Pediatric physical therapy strengthens children’s movement and function after surgery, injury or other impairment.
  • Speech therapy emphasizes communication and cognition so that children are able to understand and communicate to the people and world around them.
  • Pelvic floor dysfunction and treatment are unique services to help address bowel and bladder issues in children.

Bozeman Health Pediatric Therapy helps us live out our mission to improve community health and quality of life, and we're so glad our younger patients can benefit from these services. More information about Pediatric Therapy

VACCINATIONS

Like you, our main concern is keeping your child safe and healthy. Some parents worry about possible side effects of vaccinations and if their child really needs all the recommended shots. Misinformation abounds, but the bottom line is that vaccines are safe and protect your child from serious harm. You can be confident you are making the right decision to vaccinate your child.

If you have concerns, our pediatricians will do their best to alleviate your concerns, while providing you with accurate information.

REACH OUT AND READ: SUPPORTING LITERACY IN OUR COMMUNITY

Getting books from the doctor is routine at Bozeman Health Pediatrics. At every regular checkup, children between the ages of 6 months and 5 years receive a new, age-appropriate book to take home and keep. Also, volunteers read with children in the pediatric clinic waiting area, and our pediatricians educate parents about the importance of reading with their children every day.

MEDICAL HOME

Medical Home is a team-led, patient-centered approach to health care, where the patient is the most important player on their healthcare team. The patient and the medical home team develop a plan of care created specifically for the patient, focusing on wellness and prevention, keeping the patient connected with the health care team and coordinating care with other health care providers. Bozeman Health Pediatrics has been recognized by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) Physician Practice Connections—Patient-Centered Medical Home program for using evidence-based, patient-centered processes that focus on highly coordinated care and long-term participator relationships.
