We believe in lighting the path.

November 7th, 2019

Of all the paths young feet walk on during their journey to adulthood, the path that leads them to a future of good health is among the most important.

The new Benefis Women’s and Children’s Center is dedicated to expanding pediatric services needed within our community. With this in mind, endocrinology is one of the specialties recently added to our other Benefis Pediatrics services.

With a focus on treating hormone imbalances within the body, endocrinologists help children suffering with diabetes, unusual growth rates, early or late puberty, thyroid problems, and more. As childhood obesity rates continue to rise, expertise in hormones and glands is needed now more than ever.

While Benefis Pediatrics has already added pediatric endocrinology, the Benefis Women’s and Children’s Center will offer expanded space for pediatric specialty services. In this case, the Center will make it more seamless for patients, providing well-rounded endocrinology care with an on-site team of nutrition, exercise therapy, and psychology experts to help kids plan for a longer, better life.

“Every patient is different, and we have to customize plans to them. Patients need an integrated approach.”

–Marwan Bakhach, MD. - pediatric endocrinologist

The designated pediatric space in the Center is being designed with children in mind, from elevator buttons at their level to colorful settings to make children more comfortable while visiting their healthcare providers.

Benefis Health System’s state-of-the-art Women’s and Children’s Center will affect generations of families and change the way women and children in our community access healthcare; however, it won’t be possible without your help. Please help today and be a part of something that will have a lasting impact on our community.

We believe in building with intention.

October 24th, 2019

We are proud to unveil the design of the Benefis Women’s and Children’s Center.

This state-of-the-art outpatient treatment center will be an addition to Benefis East Campus.

The 48,000-square-foot building design aims to provide functional and calming spaces both inside and out for patients to gather, receive first-class healthcare, and experience pivotal moments. This specialized outpatient center will be the first of its kind in northcentral Montana. The building style complements the current East Campus buildings; internally the design reproduces the finishes in Benefis South Tower while introducing more natural materials and an open layout with natural light, providing an overall pleasant atmosphere. Along with that, certain areas of the building speak to the youthful spirit and activity of the pediatric patients who will receive care in the center.

 

The center will consist of three stories with women’s health on the third floor, pediatrics on the second floor, and lab/imaging and pediatric therapies on the first floor.

Services offered for women at the new center will include:

  • OB/GYN care
  • women’s wellness
  • fertility care
  • maternal-fetal medicine care
  • childbirth education
  • postpartum lactation support
  • screening mammography
  • and more

Services offered for children and teens at the new center will include:

  • occupational, speech, and physical therapy
  • psychiatry
  • neuropsychology
  • endocrinology
  • general outpatient pediatrics

"With the advent of the Women’s and Children’s Center, we’re speaking about creating a medical home and bringing in the neuropsychologists, child psychiatrists, and the pediatrician that’s generating the referral. We’re bringing them together in a collaborative way because together, we’re stronger.”

–Dr. LaToya Floyd, a child and adolescent psychiatrist

Our goal is to start construction on the Women’s and Children’s Center in Spring 2020. With your support, we aim to open the center in late 2021.

We believe that new stories begin every day. Today, we need your help to write a story that ends with a healthier generation of Montanans. Please give today.
