SSM Health is one of the largest Catholic health systems in the country and is dedicated to quality and compassionate care for anyone in need, regardless of ability to pay. It was founded in 1872 by the Franciscan Sisters of Mary. Based in St. Louis, where its System Office is located, SSM Health operates 20 hospitals in Wisconsin, Illinois, Missouri and Oklahoma. We provide care in various settings: outpatient sites, physician offices, a pharmacy benefit company, an insurance plan, hospitals, nursing homes, home care, hospice, telehealth and a technology company. Our 2013 merger with Wisconsin-based Dean Health Systems transformed us into one of the country's largest integrated delivery systems focused on caring for and managing the health of the communities we serve.
Our mission statement: Through our exceptional health care services, we reveal the healing presence of God.
