My husband is looking at applying for a job in Bozeman. Is this a family oriented community?

Also, we have a child that may need access to specialists like Pediatric Neurosurgeons and Neurologists. Is their a pediatric hospital near by?

Thank you!

Do some websearching (via google or other search engine) on medical facilities. A lot of information is available that way. Bozeman does have a good (I believe) hospital, but Montana cities are small so probably lack a lot of specializations.

If Bozeman doesn't have what you need, check Billings (two hours from Bozeman), and if Billings doesn't have what you need, the other person who mentioned Salt Lake City is probably right. A lot of people in Montana do go to Spokane, WA; SLC, UT; etc. for major medical situations, I believe.

However, if you websearch on Bozeman Hospital (I believe it's Bozeman Deaconess Hospital), you should be able to find their site and find out what services they offer.

I found out Montana has a Spina Bifida Clinic. Yeah! That is great news if we move.

Bozeman is a pretty family-oriented city, with quite a few parks and lots of great elementary schools (with decent class sizes). The main problem is that it's hard to afford a house on what they pay here (most places pay below even the state average).

The closest hospital for child specialists would be Salt Lake - the Children's Hospital there is awesome, and it's really only a 6 or 6 1/2 hour drive before the snow falls. Something else to look into for your child is Eagle Mount. It's a non-profit that offers recreational activities for disabled kids and adults - everything ranging from fishing to skiing, horseback riding to gardening. (www.eaglemount.org) (broken link). I volunteer there in the summers, and I think it's one of the best services in the community.

Eagle Mount looks amazing! That would be an awesome opportunity for my daughter to go there.

Bozeman is a "College Town" and is a great place to raise kids (IMHO). I'm originally from the midwest and it reminds me a lot of midwestern towns of that size. The Museum of the Rockies is world class.

Good Luck

Rick

We are originally from St. Louis and have lived in Wichita, KS (4 1/2 years) and in Colorado for 6 years. Then here in So Cal since this past late October. Needless to say we are not happy here in So Cal. Thats why the move. On top of we miss the Rocky Mountains terribly.

ETA - I hope if we do end of moving to Montana, its not held against us since we have Cal plates. LOL Our Colorado plates expire this month and we have no choice but to get Cal ones for now.
