SEPTEMBER 23, 2013
Bozeman Deaconess Health Services, with financial support from Kohl’s Cares®, is helping kids learn to choose nutritious foods, eat better and live a healthy lifestyle through Kohl’s Kids Eat Smart during the Women’s Fall Expo at Montana State University’s Strand Union Building Ballrooms, from 10 am to 5 pm on September 28. The 11th Annual Expo focuses on the best health and wellness, fitness and family offerings in the Gallatin Valley.

Representatives from Kohl’s Cares will present a check for $9,792 to Bozeman Deaconess Health Services at 1 pm on the Main Stage. These funds are used for the Kohl’s Kids Eat Smart program at BDHS to help prevent childhood obesity and educate people on how to eat healthy, balanced, nutritious meals and snacks. Expo attendees will be able to pick up free recipe cards with healthy recipes and Kohl’s Kids East Smart health tips, and register for upcoming Kohl’s Kids Cooking Classes that begin in October.

“Preventing childhood obesity and promoting healthy, active lifestyles for our children is an important way to reduce health risks later in life,” said Kevin Pitzer, president and CEO of Bozeman Deaconess Health Services. “This program is one way we meet our mission to improve community health and quality of life, specifically directed at ensuring the health of our children.”

Since 2012, Kohl’s has donated more than $15,000 to Bozeman Deaconess Health Services. Kohl’s made its first contribution to the Bozeman Kohl’s Kids Eat Smart initiative during the 2012 BDHS Family Wellness Day Health Fair with a check presentation for $5,444.

Kohl's commitment to Bozeman Deaconess Health Services is made possible through the Kohl's Cares cause merchandise program. Through this initiative, Kohl’s sells $5 books and plush toys, with 100 percent of net profit benefiting children’s health and education programs nationwide, including hospital partnerships like this one. Kohl's has raised more than $231 million through this merchandise program. In addition to the merchandise program, Kohl's Cares features the Kohl's Cares® Scholarship Program, which last year recognized more than 2,300 young volunteers with more than $400,000 in scholarships and prizes. Through Kohl’s Associates in Action volunteer program, more than 669,000 associates have donated more than 2.2 million hours of their time since 2001, and Kohl’s has donated more than $63 million to youth-focused nonprofit organizations.

Family Medicine


Getting books from the doctor is a routine part of regular pediatric checkups at Bozeman Deaconess Family Medicine & Pediatrics. At every regular checkup, children between the ages of 6 months and 5 years receive a new, age-appropriate book to take home and keep. Volunteers read with children in pediatric clinic waiting areas. Pediatricians and family practitioners educate parents about the importance of reading with their children every day.


Generally speaking, a family medicine doctor is a full spectrum physician who treats all members of the family providing continuous and comprehensive health care.

Bozeman Deaconess Family Medicine physicians deliver a range of acute, chronic, and preventive medical care services. In addition to diagnosing and treating illness, they provide preventive care, including routine checkups, health-risk assessments, immunizations, and screening tests, as well as personalized counseling on maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Family physicians manage chronic illness, while coordinating care provided by other sub specialists.

Our family medicine physicians enjoy being a part of the whole family. Knowing the dynamics of multiple generations and caring for each is part of their approach to good medical care for the entire family.

Medical Home

Medical Home is a team-led, patient-centered approach to health care, where the patient is the most important player on their healthcare team. The patient and the medical home team develop a plan of care created specifically for the patient, focuses on wellness and prevention, keeps the patient connected with the health care team and coordinates care with other health care providers.
