ImageOur Mission and history make SSM Health at Home unique

SSM Health at Home, formally SSM Home Care, is a member of SSM Health, a Catholic health-care system based in St. Louis and founded by the Franciscan SIsters of Mary.

SSM Today

Our heritage of healing can be traced back to 1872 when five German nuns arrived in St. Louis to care for poor and sick people. Since, SSM Health has grown into a large, not-for-profit health system serving the comprehensive health needs of communities across the Midwest through one of the largest integrated delivery systems in the nation.

Today, SSM Health encompasses 20 hospitals, more than 60 outpatient care sites, a pharmacy benefit company, an insurance company, two nursing homes, comprehensive home care and hospice services, a technology company, and two accountable care organizations. With more than 1,300 employed physicians and more than 33,000 employees in four states, SSM Health is one of the largest employers in every community it serves. SSM is an early adopter of the electronic health record and remains a national leader in its use.

That integration benefits patients. Patients receive care from expert and compassionate clinicians and have access to a number of exceptional services.
