Through People, We Make a Difference
Being a physician-led practice is a big part of who we are. Our practice is built by all of us, and everyone is empowered to contribute and make our practice even better. Sound Physicians fosters an environment of engagement, where both individual and team contributions are encouraged and rewarded.
St. James Healthcare is a 100-bed Level III Trauma center and one of Montana’s largest comprehensive hospitals, serving the healthcare needs of people throughout a seven-county region. St. James Healthcare has played an important role in the history of Butte, Montana. Founded in 1881 by the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth, St. James has been known for generations for its mission of compassionate care and service to the poor. Today, that commitment is accompanied by St. James’ reputation as a technological leader in Montana’s healthcare industry and the largest acute-care hospital in southwest Montana.

Location & Lifestyle
BIG, BOLD skies, and outdoor recreation. The only place to live when you love the outdoors. Located right on the western edge of the Continental Divide (and midway between two national parks), quality of life and balance are realities in this SW Montana town. Benefit from enough blocked time off to enjoy the surrounding mountainous area and close-by opportunities to hike, climb, ski, bike, golf, fish, float, boat or just relax in the abundant natural hot springs. Children grow up here in much the same way they did 30 years ago — without the worries our culture is seeing in larger metro areas. A strong public school system combined with a strong sense of community gives your children a stable start in life.
