A Weekly Content Series

Five years ago, we began dreaming of a space Montana kids deserve – one that was intentional, open, safe, flexible, and hopeful. And now, after years of listening, learning, and leaning in, we’re beginning to see that dream come to fruition. Just months away from the opening of our new hospital building, we invite you to join us here weekly as we walk through our new state-of-the-art space, connect with generous donors, give a voice to patients, highlight our resilient employees, and ultimately give you an inside look at our Blueprint of Hope, Shodair’s journey of caring for Montana. Grab your hard hat and read on!
