Nursing at SSM Health St. Mary's Hospital - St. Louis

As nurses, we are privileged to be part of a team where the patient is at the center of all that we do each day. We are committed to excellence, and our goal is to provide an environment that focuses on employee engagement, innovation and improvement that benefits both our patients and our nurses.

To maintain a healing environment, SSM Health St. Mary's Hospital provides a number of opportunities for professional growth, including participation in a Nurse Practice Council, Learn projects, tuition reimbursement and scholarships. We have a proud history of promotion from within SSM Health to titled leader roles as well as promoting our nurses who may be interested in moving into critical care, surgical services or the emergency department. 

Every day, we remember our heritage of healing that began more than 143 years ago with five sisters who came to St. Louis with only $5 and a desire to make a difference in the lives of those who needed care. At SSM Health St. Mary's, we feel blessed to be part of that Mission of healing. 

When you choose SSM Health St. Mary's Hospital to be your next career partner, our heritage of healing will be in your hands. 

I am Kathy Barnes, and I am an SSM Health nurse.
