Message from our CEO

​​​​Become one of our Exceptional People.

Thank you for your interest in joining the SSM Health family.

Health care is much more than a job or even a career. It is a calling to serve others and improve the health of the many communities we ser​​ve -- one person at a time. At SSM Health, our employees are part of something bigger than a medical office, hospital or even health system. They're part of a sacred heritage of healing that began more than 143 years ago, when our founding sisters came to America with $5 and a Mission to help those in need.

Today, SSM Health is one of the largest integrated health care delivery systems in the country. With more than 33,000 employees in four states, we are committed to providing exceptional service and the highest-quality care to our patients and customers.

It takes exceptional people to deliver an exceptional experience. That is why we commit time and resources to help our employees grow in their careers and reach their full potential. In fact, more than 1,200 SSM Health employees were promoted from within in 2015 alone.

Our SSM Health family is passionate, talented and diverse. We all contribute ideas and work together to find the best ways to serve our patients and customers. And we celebrate and recognize our successes together, too. Teamwork isn't just a buzz word: It's a way of life across our health system.

I don't know of many other organizations where every employee knows the Mission statement by heart: "Through our exceptional health care services, we reveal the healing presence of God." At SSM Health, our Mission and Values of Compassion, Respect, Excellence, Stewardship and Community are lived out every day. We use them to guide our decisions and how we treat one another. 

I have to believe the Mission and Values are a strong reason that so many employees choose to call SSM Health their home for most of their career. In fact, we have more than 4,500 employees with 20-plus years of service with SSM Health. I'm proud to say that I'm one of them: I have been with SSM Health for more than 35 years.

If working for a Mission-based, high-quality organization sounds like a good fit for you, then I hope you'll join us. 

Thank you,

Bill Thompson
President/CEO, SSM Health
