Bozeman Health Foundation announced the theme for its 21st Annual Hospitality auction: It’s time to reveal what’s behind the mask, an evening masquerade supporting Behavioral Health in Southwest Montana.
One of Bozeman’s largest and most successful annual charity events, it typically raises more than $400,000 and helped fund nearly $5 million to various hospital departments. Hospitality 2022 will be a virtual event featuring a one-of-a-kind silent and live auction and live drive for cash donations. Proceeds from this year’s gala will support the building and equipment needed for a new 12-bed inpatient behavioral health unit at Deaconess Hospital in addition to supporting and growing the programs at Big Sky Medical Center.
Over the last year, Bozeman Health has grown its behavioral health services in southwest Montana offering integrated behavioral health services in primary and pediatric care settings, enhancing our emergency and crisis response services and implementing tele-psychiatry. The development of an innovative 12-bed inpatient psychiatric unit at Deaconess Hospital will provide comprehensive inpatient treatment in a compassionate, de-stigmatizing, and calming setting. With a modern design, and focus on comfort, it will house inpatient psychiatric services close to home for adults in need and provide care across all economic circumstances.
“Over the past four years, Bozeman Health has engaged in a journey with our community partners to understand regional behavioral health services gaps and evolving needs that we’ve seen increase during the pandemic,” shared John Hill, Bozeman Health president and CEO. “As we continue that journey, Bozeman Health is committed to keeping care close to home and will add inpatient psychiatric care to the regional behavioral health care continuum.”
The “It’s time to reveal what’s behind the mask” evening masquerade takes place April 30, 2022 virtually. Bozeman Health Foundation is encouraging individuals to “mask up” and gather in small groups and tune into the event.
