COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

Urgent Response Fund Amid COVID-19

As the pandemic continues, our neighbors, friends, and loved ones continue looking to us for hope and healing amidst the unknown. We are following in the footsteps of our Founding sisters and are aligned with thousands of other heroic caregivers and support teams working in health care across the globe. Together, we are ensuring the uninterrupted delivery of exceptional care for the people who need us.


Because our number one priority is the safety of our patients, their families, and our employees, we have created an SSM Health Urgent Response Fund to support the emerging needs resulting from the Coronavirus (COVID-19).

The SSM Health URGENT RESPONSE FUND gives you a fast, efficient way to provide immediate resources to SSM Health experts. From essential health care needs to emerging supplies to employee relief efforts, your donations will be put to good use—and quickly.  

Support through this fund from organizations and individuals provides speed and flexibility, which are essential elements in saving lives during crisis situations.

You can make your donation today to support the emerging needs of those on our frontline—those who are caring for us who now need our care.

We ask that you prayerfully consider your situation, and if you are able to do so, please contribute to ensure every person in our community has access to the best care during this critical time.

Why should you give?

As the numbers continue to climb, SSM Health Foundation – St. Louis created the SSM Health Urgent Response Fund to provide vital resources for the most critical needs of our health care providers and the patients they serve. Your support will help alleviate the incredible burden COVID-19 is placing on our region’s health care system.

Please give to this Urgent Response Fund. When the future is so unpredictable, the best we can do is prepare for the worst. Please give today.
