Awards

​​SSM Health is exceptional: But don't just take our word for it. Each year, our facilities and employees receive numerous accolades for providing exceptional care and outstanding service to the patients and customers of our communities.

​In 2003, SSM Health became the first health care organization in the country to be named a Malcom Baldrige National Quality Award (MBNQA) winner. SSM was one of 17 health care institutions to apply for the MBNQ (now called the Malcolm Baldrige Award). The award, given by the U.S. Department of Commerce, is the top honor a U.S. company can receive for quality management and quality achievement. Each year, the Commerce Department selects up to three organizations in the categories of manufacturing, service, small business, education and health care for the award, which is traditionally presented by the president of the United States.

For two decades, SSM Health has embraced the principles of continuous quality improvement in an effort to fulfill our mission to our patients and their families. That has led to a series of honors throughout the SSM Health System.
