Great care starts with getting to know our patients

Why do we spend so much time getting to know our patients? Because they're often our neighbors, our friends, even our family and we care about their health. Also when patients feel connected to staff caring for them, their outcomes are better.

The personal touch. It's just one more way SSM Health fulfills its mission to deliver world class care close to home — with a community connection.

Our History

St. Clare Hospital began with five Sisters and their unwavering call to care for a community. The Sisters' dedication and courage shaped us into the vibrant network we are today. At SSM Health, we continue to embody the very same traits that made their health care mission a success. It's the reason patients, physicians, employees continue to seek us out.
