Shodair is creating a healthy and hopeful Montana through specialized psychiatric care for children and adolescents along with a nationally recognized genetics program providing care for all ages.
Shodair Children’s Hospital became a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital in 1987 and remains the only CMN hospital in Montana. Every penny of every dollar that is raised during a CMN fundraiser supports Shodair directly. Donated funds help cover costs for Montana families who cannot afford to.
In addition, Shodair first received Joint Commission accreditation in 1992, and has been continuously accredited since that time. Shodair’s education program is an accredited year-round school for elementary, middle, and high school students. Our team of educators are certified in special education and includes six teachers, six teaching assistants, a speech pathologist, a school psychologist, and a principal.
Medical Genetics Program
Shodair’s nationally recognized medical genetics department provides genetic evaluation and counseling to citizens throughout all of Montana. The Medical Genetics Program offers comprehensive services to individuals with genetic conditions or concerns about their risk to transmit or develop a genetic disorder. The program is sponsored in part through funding from the Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services.
The Genetics Laboratory offers specialized testing as a part of the comprehensive medical genetics program based at Shodair Children’s Hospital. The Genetics Laboratory provides a wide variety of patient focused esoteric studies with an emphasis on quality, turnaround time, and personal responsiveness to providers. In addition to our dedicated laboratory staff, Shodair’s medical geneticists and genetic counselors are available to help clinicians and families understand test results.
The Genetics Laboratory provides services to patients of all ages throughout Montana and the western United States.
