SSM Health Saint Louis University Hospital Campaign

The SSM Health Saint Louis University Hospital Campaign was launched in 2017 to secure capital and comprehensive support for a $550 million urban replacement hospital and Center for Specialized Medicine. With the generous support of benefactors and community leaders, the Grand New SSM Health Saint Louis University Hospital opened on September 1, 2020.

A vital health care option for 2.4 million people across the St. Louis region, the new facility houses sophisticated technology and design that supports and elevates our academic-medical partnership with the Saint Louis University School of Medicine. Private inpatient rooms and convenient outpatient services will better serve diverse patient and family needs. Our new Emergency Department and Level I Trauma Center is two times larger, to meet the growing critical care needs of 75 outlying partner clinics and nearly 50,000 patients annually, within a 250-mile radius across Missouri and Illinois. As the largest Medicaid service provider in Missouri, we are committed to serving our most vulnerable populations while operating as a destination hospital where patients choose premiere treatment and specialized care. Last year, SSM Health Saint Louis University Hospital provided more than $80 million in charity care and community benefit, including prevention and wellness programs.

The SSM Health Saint Louis University Hospital campaign continues raising support for legacy building renovations, state of the art equipment, community outreach and access, and more. We are proud to invest in our city’s health, workforce, and economic development – and you can do the same by making a gift to the SSM Health Saint Louis University Hospital campaign here.

The Most Advanced Health Care Facility in Our Region

We strive to provide compassionate and exceptional care to our patients and their families.

“Being a part of SSM is personal. The care and compassion they provided to my family was really helpful during a time I needed it most.”
– Greg Hesser, Chairman SSM Health Foundation – St. Louis Board of Trustees
“SSM really listens to us. Because their mission is grounded in the same mission that I think the core values are of a loving family. Their mission is that the patient’s comfort and healing come first.”
– Sue Schaeffer, Grateful Patient Family
“Everyone did really well as a team in my stay of the labor and delivery. And my babies are cared for very well in the NICU. I would recommend this hospital to anyone in the world. Thank you for a great and comfortable stay and for always caring for my needs.”
– Grateful Patient
“It was a scary moment, but they were there with us…not only to take care of my wife, but also – all of us family members. With certain protocols in place, I didn’t think my wife would be here. I hate to imagine if she would have been hospitalized somewhere else.”
– Husband of Grateful Patient
“The people of SSM Health made me feel like I was going to survive when I didn’t believe it myself. I really believe they are the reason I am here today. SSM is my guardian angel.”
– Gary Foree, Cancer Survivor and SSM Health Cancer Care Volunteer Advocate
“SSM Health care workers often see their work as a calling rather than just a profession. I am glad that they feel called, because otherwise they wouldn’t be able to do everything they need to do to support these patients…it has been all hands-on deck, and they have really risen to the challenge and done so cheerfully because they do think it is a calling. They’re the ones in the room where difficult conversations are held. And sometimes they’re the ones holding the hands of patients as they’re passing into the next world.”
– Tina Garrison, SSM Health St. Clare Hospital President
“To show our appreciation for the exceptional care and compassion I received from the nurses, doctors, and staff at SSM Health we have chosen to make a gift in their honor through our Honor Your Caregiver program. I hope you, too, will join me in showing your appreciation for the phenomenal care you received.”
– Josh Terrio, Grateful Patient
