BOZEMAN DEACONESS TURNS BLUE IN APRIL FOR AUTISM AWARENESS

MARCH 29, 2013
Nearly one child in 90 in the United States has been identified with an autism spectrum disorder according to estimates from the Center for Disease Control’s Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring (ADDM) Network. Autism spectrum disorder affects more than two million people in this country and is almost five times more common among boys than girls.

Many of those with autism spectrum disorder have not been diagnosed due to the complex nature of these brain development disorders. To raise awareness of the condition, Bozeman Deaconess Health Services is promoting World Autism Awareness Day on April 2. Bozeman Deaconess Hospital will “shine a light on autism” by going blue for the month of April, and Bozeman Deaconess is encouraging everyone to “Wear Blue to Work” on April 2.

People with autism spectrum disorder often are affected by flashing lights, sudden movements and overly loud sounds, making it uncomfortable to participate in many routine activities, such as attending the cinema. BDHS is helping there as well, by offering a free sensory-friendly film on April 27. “The Incredibles” will be shown with volume and lights at appropriate levels in the Wheatgrass Room at 1:00 pm. All are welcome.

FOCUSING ON ADULT MEDICINE

Our physicians have had special study and training focusing on the prevention and treatment of adult diseases. Internists are specially trained to solve puzzling diagnostic problems and can handle severe chronic illnesses and situations where several different illnesses may strike at the same time. 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.

Bozeman Deaconess Bridger Internal Medicine, Bozeman Deaconess Spinelli Internal Medicine, Bozeman Deaconess Internal Medicine Associates and Bozeman Deaconess Family Medicine and Pediatrics are recognized by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) for using evidence-based, patient-centered processes that focus on highly coordinated care and long-term participative relationships. Notably, the Bozeman Deaconess Health Group clinics are the first in the State of Montana to earn Level III Medical Home Recognition.
