While we can’t discount the physical healing that takes place across our system, we know that exceptional health care is more than medicine. It is how we choose to care for our patients and customers: by taking the time to listen, to understand, to answer questions, to hold hands, or even to pray. These are the moments when we reveal God’s healing presence in a powerful and enduring way. We are SSM Health and we believe in the Healing Power of Presence.
The SSM Heritage Tour videos take you on a tour of historic places in the founding of SSM Health Care -- from its founding in 1872 by five religious sisters to its growth into one of the largest Catholic health care systems in the country today. What they started in 1872, we continue through our mission today.
