The SSM Health Government Affairs and Public Policy department works with policy decision makers to advocate and educate on behalf of patients at the local, state and federal levels of government. We uphold SSM Health’s mission through open and ongoing communication with governmental agencies and officials about the current and emerging needs of our patients and employees.
We closely monitor issues related to health care, including areas such as access to care, the health care regulatory environment, physician and nursing, pediatrics, trauma care, acute and post-acute care, insurance, and pharmacy benefit management. We also provide opportunities for elected officials to visit our facilities and meet with SSM Health leadership to directly learn the impact governmental policies have on our patients and employees.
Additionally, we collaborate with health care and community organizations that advocate in our country and local communities for improved health care for both children and adults.
The following government and health care industry links are useful for tracking health care issues throughout the nation and in the four states where SSM Health operates.
