A Shared Courage. A Common Good.
At SSM Health, we believe in the healing power of presence and providing exceptional patient care for all. Our healing heritage spans early 150 years in the St. Louis community, where we built an 802,000 square foot transformational replacement hospital and Ambulatory Care Center on Grand Boulevard, in the heart of Midtown redevelopment.
Opened on September 1, 2020, our Grand New SSM Health Saint Louis University Hospital 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.
Better Solutions Together.
Supporting this advanced urban replacement hospital project, the SSM Health Saint Louis University Hospital Campaign launched in August 2017 with a $2.5 million challenge grant from the Alberici Foundation. Other significant contributors include: Enterprise Holdings Foundation, Murphy Company, the J.E. and L.E. Mabee Foundation, Lawrence Group, Ameren, Guarantee Electrical, Mid-America Transplant, and Northstar Management. When corporations and community leaders give back, great things happen.
