BOZEMAN, Mont. — Bozeman Health and Helena’s St. Peter’s Health are forming a new partnership to bring a higher level of care for families.

According to a press release, a new program for neonatal care and maternal-fetal medicine services is planned, part of an effort to bring specialized care closer to home for Montanans.

Families with high-risk pregnancies in Helena will be able to have access to NICU care at Bozeman Health and telehealth consults, allowing families to stay close to home as long as possible.

“Bozeman Health and St. Peter’s Health share a common vision to care for patients close to home and to keep them close to their families, friends, and support system,” said Bozeman Health president and CEO John Hill. “We know that having a high-risk pregnancy, or delivering a baby that may need specialized care, can turn what should be a joyous time into one that is stress-filled. It is our hope that this partnership and center of excellence will alleviate that stress for families and patients in and between Bozeman and Helena.”
