On Thursday (3/10) we'll be pulling on your heartstrings a little bit throughout the day for the annual St. Vincent Healthcare Foundation's Call for Kids Mediathon. From 6 am to 6 pm, listen for stories of hope, courage, and strength as families from Montana and surrounding states share their experiences with St. V's.

Funds raised will benefit St. Vincent Children’s Healthcare services, including the region’s first Pediatric Intensive Care Unit staffed 24/7 by Pediatric Intensivists and the only Pediatric Surgery program in eastern Montana.

You can become a Healing Hero by making a $20 monthly donation (or a single gift of $240). Funds raised help support the most fragile patients receive the best technology, programs, and facilities to heal close to home.

You can donate by texting KIDS to 32037 - or - call 406-869-3669. Operators will be standing by on the phone bank, waiting for your call to help make a difference. You can also DONATE ONLINE HERE.

We're lucky to have the resources St. Vincent Healthcare provides when it comes to pediatric care. For over 100 years, thousands of kids from Montana, Wyoming, and the Dakota's have experienced awesome care, close to home. St. Vincent Children's offers:

  • A kid-friendly pediatric unit staffed by experienced pediatric trained nurses.
  • Montana’s first pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) is staffed 24/7 by pediatric intensivists, or specially trained critical care doctors, to treat kids with serious conditions.
  • Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), offering comprehensive care for the highest risk newborns who are preterm or have a critical illness.
  • Fortin Specialty Clinic is a neighboring medical building, and hub for certified pediatric specialists and sub-specialists, including those visiting from the western United States.
