Community Health Needs Assessment

SSM Health has delivered exceptional, compassionate care to our communities for many years. Inspired by our founding Franciscan Sisters of Mary and guided by our Mission - Through our exceptional health care services, we reveal the healing presence of God - we cherish the sacredness and dignity of each person as demonstrated through our Values of compassion, respect, excellence, stewardship and community.

In collaboration with our community partners, SSM Health conducted numerous Community Health Needs Assessments (CHNA). These assessments included:
  • Gathering health-related information from Healthy Communities Institute (HCI)
  • Interviewing key health officials
  • Conducting community health surveys to identify concerns within our communities
  • Assessing the number of area-based programs and organizations that exist to address the community’s needs
The needs identified were then prioritized based on the level of importance to community members and the ability of our hospitals to make a significant impact. The results, reports and data can be accessed by exploring the dashboards below.

In the coming years, SSM Health will continue to develop our community partnerships and deliver an exceptional experience through high-quality, accessible and affordable care. We welcome your thoughts on how we can create healthier communities together. Please send your ideas and questions to
