Caring Through COVID

SCL Health Montana Region Recognizes Dedication and Sacrifice of Caregivers through Documentary

As our nation and world reflect on the two-year anniversary of the COVID-19 pandemic, SCL Health’s hospitals in Montana: St. Vincent Healthcare in Billings, Holy Rosary Healthcare in Miles City, and St. James Healthcare in Butte, are recognizing the dedication and sacrifice of caregivers and healthcare workers through a 30-minute documentary.

‘Caring Through COVID’ provides a profound view into the lives of nine SCL Health Montana caregivers and what they’ve encountered over the past two years while delivering a compelling storyline as the healthcare workers share their experiences in their own words.

Through this documentary, our hope is to honor the incredible dedication of our caregivers and thank them for their commitment to delivering compassionate care despite the many challenges they’ve overcome throughout the pandemic. The heart of a healthcare worker is compassionate, resilient, fierce, and caring -- and it's what has carried us through COVID. Our caregivers live out our mission every day to improve the health of those we serve and we are forever grateful.

‘Caring Through COVID’ was televised on the Montana CBS affiliates in the Billings, Bozeman, and Butte markets in January and February 2022 and can now be viewed in its entirety online at
