MJ MURDOCK CHARITABLE TRUST GRANTS $250,000 TO BOZEMAN DEACONESS CANCER CENTER

OCTOBER 11, 2013
Bozeman Deaconess Foundation is proud to announce the approval of a $250,000 top-off grant from the MJ Murdock Charitable Trust of Vancouver, WA to expand radiation oncology services at Bozeman Deaconess Cancer Center. This grant is designated toward the special vault which will house the new, state-of-art Linear Accelerator. This accelerator includes a build-in CT scanner which will enable our medical staff to provide high doses of radiation therapy directly to tumors while sparing healthy surrounding tissue. The benefit to patients will be significant. For instance, a prostate cancer patient receiving daily treatments over a nine-week period could instead be treated with five treatments over a three-week period. The new technology will be installed and ready to use in 2014.

The MJ Murdock Charitable Trust’s goal is to help Bozeman Deaconess Foundation raise $2 million toward this effort. The foundation has already raised $1 million. Therefore, once an additional $750,000 is committed through pledges or outright gifts, the trust will fulfill the $250,000 top-off grant. This is the fourth grant Bozeman Deaconess Foundation has received from the MJ Murdock Trust for a total of $1 million since 2000. Departments supported by trust’s donations have included the Cancer Center, Heart Center and Emergency Department.

Contributions to help achieve the top-off grant can be sent to Bozeman Deaconess Foundation at 931 Highland Blvd., Suite 3200, Bozeman, MT 59715, made on-line at bozemandeaconessfoundation.org or by calling (406) 585-1085.

FOCUSING ON ADULT MEDICINE

Our physicians have had special study and training focusing on the prevention and treatment of adult diseases.

We focus on your wellness (disease prevention and the promotion of health), women's health, substance abuse, mental health, as well as effective treatment of common problems of the eyes, ears, skin, nervous system and reproductive organs.

INTERNAL MEDICINE

Our internists are doctors for adults--both in treating disease and keeping patients well. As specialists in adult heath care we care for our patients for life. We oversee our patient’s care even when other doctors are involved.

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.
We offer open scheduling and expanded hours for our patients convenience. Patient-Centered Medical Home practices result in better quality of care and lowed costs for the patient by increasing access to more efficient, more coordinated care. By avoiding unnecessary hospitalizations and emergency room visits, these early results are producing savings for payers, purchasers and patients.
