BOZEMAN DEACONESS NAMED ONE OF 100 GREAT COMMUNITY HOSPITALS

JUNE 26, 2014
Bozeman Deaconess Hospital has been named of the nation’s “100 Great Community Hospitals” by Becker’s Hospital Review, based on the hospital’s accolades, quality of care, and services provided to patients.

Hospitals named to the list all have fewer than 550 beds and minimal teaching programs, and many are located in rural areas. “All have worked to provide the experience and quality of care their patients expect and deserve,” said Heather Punke, assistant editor of Becker’s Hospital Review, a monthly publication for high-level hospital leaders offering business and legal news and analysis relating to hospitals and health systems.

“This prestigious recognition once again reflects the ongoing commitment of every provider, every associate, every staff member at Bozeman Deaconess Health Services to meet our mission of improving community health and quality of life,” said Kevin Pitzer, CEO and president of BDHS. “We constantly strive to provide high quality and safe care to our patients, and continuously enhance value to our patients through improved care processes and cost efficiencies.”

The Becker’s Hospital Review editorial team selected this year’s top 100 community hospitals based on rankings and awards from a number of influential healthcare analysis organizations, including the American Hospital Association and Truven Health Analytics. Earlier this year, Bozeman Deaconess was named one of the nation’s 100 Top Hospitals by Truven Health Analytics and was also named a Healthstrong Top Hospital by iVantage Health Analytics. Bozeman Deaconess Hospital was one of only two hospitals in the state to be named to the 100 Great Community Hospitals list for 2014.

Neurology

TREATING DISORDERS OF THE NERVOUS SYSTEM

Our neurologists diagnose and treat neurological symptoms and disorders including headaches, dementia, numbness or weakness in limbs, dizziness, epilepsy and other non-related seizures, stroke and multiple sclerosis.

NEUROLOGY

Neurologists are medical specialists that treat diseases of the brain, spinal cord, nerves and muscles. Since the nervous system is responsible for controlling all voluntary and most automatic functions of the human body, neurological disorders can manifest in a variety of different ways.

Typical symptoms of nervous system diseases include numbness/tingling, weakness, difficulty speaking or swallowing, pain, abnormal vision, seizures, memory loss, headache, abnormal movements, problems walking and bowel or bladder dysfunction. During an office visit a neurologist listens to patients symptoms and performs a special type of physical exam to identify where the symptoms originate in the nervous system. Afterwards, they can more clearly define a diagnosis and arrive at appropriate treatment strategies.

If you experience symptoms suggestive of a neurological disorder, discuss them with your primary care doctor. He or she can determine the significance of your symptoms and advise you whether to consult a Neurologist for further diagnosis and treatment.
