SSM Health is a healthcare system that is based in the Midwest with over 40,000 employees, 24 hospitals, 300 physician offices and outpatient care sites, and a wide array of comprehensive health services to reach as many community members as possible. They pride themselves in shaping care based on patient feedback and developing an unmatched caring culture within their facilities. Patients and customers are their first priority, followed very closely by their employees.
What is SSM Health?
SSM stands for Sisters of St. Mary, and SSM health began in 1872 when five nuns emigrated from Germany to St. Louis with only $5 to their name. Through perseverance, a dedication to serving the community, and collaboration with physicians, those nuns paved the path for the integrative healthcare system known as SSM health, today.
