Based in St. Louis, SSM Health is sponsored by the SSM Health Ministries and began with five religious Sisters who journeyed to St. Louis in 1872 from Germany to be of service to people in need. In their early ledgers, the sisters listed patients who could not pay for their care as “Our Dear Lord’s.” To this day, SSM ensures discounts for people without health insurance. SSM owns, manages and is affiliated with hospitals and nursing homes in four states: Wisconsin, Illinois, Missouri, and Oklahoma. In 2014, more than 1.5 million people came to SSM Health for care. SSM Health has about 31,000 employees, 8,500 physicians, and nearly 2,400 volunteers. It is the first healthcare recipient of the Malcolm Baldrige Award and the first large health system to go tobacco-free inside and out.
