About SSM Health St. Louis Region 

Founded by the Franciscan Sisters of Mary, SSM Health St. Louis is committed to delivering quality patient care to the greater St. Louis area as embodied in its mission statement:

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

In accordance with the philosophy of the Franciscan Sisters of Mary, we value the sacredness and dignity of each person. Therefore, we find these five values consistent with both our heritage and ministerial priorities:






With eight top-ranked hospitals and more than 65 clinics conveniently located across the greater St. Louis area, SSM Health provides exceptional care to patients — whatever their needs and wherever they may be.

The 3,000 physicians and 15,000 employees of SSM Health are innovators in the health care field. We are on the cutting edge when it comes to care for heart, stroke, maternity, children, cancer, sleep disorders and weight loss.

With the addition of SSM Health Saint Louis University Hospital to the SSM Health - St. Louis family in 2015, and the SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children's Hospital, we now have a complete continuum of care within our region with both adult and pediatric Level 1 trauma centers.

The SSM Health Medical Group includes more than 350 primary and specialty care physicians and 1,200 employees at more than 65 locations throughout the St. Louis region including five Urgent Care clinics and 25 SSM Health Express Clinic at Walgreens locations. All SSM Health Medical Group primary care practices are nationally recognized as NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Homes. This means our physicians and staff will be your partners in health. We’ll provide exceptional care to you through evidence-based protocols while we coordinate and manage your care across the care continuum. That means we’ll partner with you on every aspect of your care.

Other services include Cardinal Glennon Close to Home pediatric services and SSM Health at Home.

We provide our patients with an online Doctor Referral, Health Library and Wellness Program Registration hotline that can be reached at 314-SSM-DOCS (toll-free 866-SSM-DOCS).

Our parent organization, SSM Health, also based in St. Louis, in 2002 became the first health care winner of the prestigious Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award. The system owns, operates and manages hospitals and nursing homes in four states: Missouri, Illinois, Wisconsin and Oklahoma.
