Who is SSM Health?

​​SSM Health​ is a Catholic, not-for-profit health system serving the comprehensive health needs of communities across the Midwest through one of the largest integrated delivery systems in the nation.

Our Mission:

Through our exceptional health care services, we reveal the healing presence of God. ​

With care delivery sites in Illinois, Missouri, Oklahoma, and Wisconsin, SSM Health includes 20 hospitals, more than 60 outpatient care sites, a pharmacy benefit company, an insurance company, two nursing homes, comprehensive home care and hospice services, a technology company and two Accountable Care Organizations.

Our breadth of leading health services and care locations provides convenience for the people in the communities we serve.

With more than 1,300 employed physicians and more than 33,000 employees in four states, SSM Health is one of the largest employers in every community it serves. An early adopter of the electronic health record (EHR), SSM Health is a national leader in EHR integration. The addition of Dean Health System in 2013 brings the number of physician visits across SSM Health to 4 million annually.
