Our team of emergency doctors, trauma and specialty surgeons, specialty-trained nurses, technicians, pharmacists, care managers and others work together to provide lifesaving treatments and personal care. Our holistic approach to care means that we work with you and your family to do what’s best for your health care needs.

Our Emergency & Trauma Center is equipped to treat a variety of traumatic injuries, including head injuries, broken bones and injuries caused by accidents or violence. Most emergency and trauma departments are identified at different levels ranging from Level I to Level V Trauma Centers, depending on the availability of specialists and specialty treatment.
St. Vincent Regional Hospital is proud to be verified by the American College of Surgeons as a Level II Trauma Center. In fact, according to the most recent State of Montana Trauma Registry data, for two years in a row, more patients trusted St. Vincent with their trauma care than any other trauma center in Montana. We are fully committed to continuing our tradition of enhancing access to innovative and high-quality trauma care for the people of our region. 

Trauma center levels
A facility earns the title of “designated trauma center” when it meets requirements established by state or local government authorities. The American College of Surgeons verifies the designation of Trauma Centers as Level, I, II, III, IV or V. Levels depend on the types of resources available and the number of trauma cases handled each year.

The American Trauma Society provides a guide to the levels of Trauma Centers. In brief, services by level signify:

  • Level l – The highest level of definitive and comprehensive care for patients with complex injuries
  • Level ll - Definitive care for complex and severe trauma patients
  • Level lll - Initial evaluation and stabilization (surgically if appropriate) to the trauma patient
  • Levels IV and V - Initial evaluation, stabilization, diagnostic capabilities and transfer to a higher level of care

St. Vincent Regional Hospital has been designated a Level II trauma center since 1993. In August of 2022, St. Vincent chose to become the first hospital in Montana to officially apply for Level I Trauma Center verification under the American College of Surgeons with a goal of becoming a Comprehensive Trauma Center, as verified by the State of Montana, in early 2024.

St. Vincent Regional Hospital is a cornerstone of trauma care excellence in Montana. We stand firm in our commitment to deliver the highest quality of care and to continuously expand our services to meet the needs of our region.

Call to Schedule


If you or your loved one needs immediate medical care outside of the hospital, you can reach community emergency services such as the local fire department or ambulance company by calling 911. Trained professionals can then begin treatment right away, even before you reach the hospital. Should you need more advanced care after the emergency room, we may transfer you to another facility, either by an ambulance service or by air.

The CareFlight team of highly trained flight nurses, paramedics, neonatal nurse practitioners, neonatal intensive care nurses, obstetrical nurses, and respiratory therapists provide critical care to adults, children and newborns. We make use of air transport to minimize out-of-hospital time and deliver you to the appropriate destination as safely as possible.
