Shodair Children’s Hospital is the only facility in the state of Montana to offer both acute and residential treatment services for children and adolescents. There are two developmentally specific acute units for stabilization.
Shodair Children’s Hospital provides two developmentally specific residential treatment programs for middle school and high school children. Each program provides a safe, therapeutic, and nurturing environment to promote positive change.
The Jack Casey Therapeutic Group Home offers long-term care for children ages 6 to 10 in a home-like environment. Children either attend Helena Public Schools or Shodair's Day Treatment Program.
School at Shodair is accredited by the AdvancED and operates year-round. This allows students an opportunity to work in academic areas as needed or to make up missed credits. All our teachers have special education endorsements.
The mission of Shodair Children’s Hospital’s Department of Medical Genetics is to provide excellence in meeting genetic needs of Montanans through diagnosis, consultation, and support for families, outreach, scholarship, and education.

Spirit of Children chooses to partner with and support Child Life whose main function is to provide developmental, educational and therapeutic support for children undergoing medical treatment. Trained Child Life Specialists help children and their families cope with the many stresses involved when a child is in the hospital. While each hospital is unique in their needs, the money we collect and donate to child life has been used to purchase such educational and entertainment items as: Laptop computers, iPods and iPads, Flat screen TVs, medical education dolls and equipment, and toys designed specifically for children with physical challenges. In addition to toys and equipment, money raised has been used for such things as: funding field trips, adding staff to keep playrooms open longer and on weekends, developing rehabilitative art programs and weekly music therapy programs.
