About Shodair

Shodair began as a home for orphaned and abandoned children in 1896. As Shodair evolved to meet the needs of Montana's children, it became the first facility in the state to treat children with polio, the first facility with a department of medical genetics, and the first with a chemical dependency unit dedicated to adolescents.

For more than 119 years, Shodair has stayed in step with the ever-changing needs of Montana's children. Shodair's medical specialists develop programs that meet our mission of providing for the care and treatment of children suffering from illness, diseases, and other physical, mental, and emotional conditions that impair their health and well-being.
