Our Mission

A Legacy of Courage

We are inspired daily by the mission of the founding sisters who, in 1872, began their ministry of healing with $5 and a basket to collect donations for the needy and carry medical supplies.

By striving to continue their momentum, the SSM Health Foundation – St. Louis is honored to courageously serve the needs of our community by seeking financial support for our hospitals to sustain our vitally important mission.

Through our exceptional healthcare services, we reveal the healing presence of God.
