Emergency and Trauma Care
Bozeman Health has two, full-service emergency departments in our health system that are both are DNV-GL certified for safety and quality of patient care and staffed 24/7/365. Our emergency departments are always open, and both have helipads for air ambulance transport.
In Bozeman, we have a 27-bed, 25-room, Level III Verified Trauma Center, and is staffed by board-certified physicians, mid-level practitioners, registered nurses, behavioral health specialists, and patient care techs.
As a Level III Trauma Center, we have 24-hour availability of our trauma team, which encompasses members of the OR, ED, 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.
The emergency department is a certified Primary Stroke Center based on the guidelines of the Brain Attack Coalition and recommendations from the American Stroke Association.
In Big Sky, our 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.
