For more than a century, you've known us as St. Francis Hospital & Health Services in Maryville, Missouri. And now, you'll come to know us as
SSM Health St. Francis Hospital. The SSM Health system has been part of St. Francis since the hospital was founded in
1894. Our new name reflects the long-time relationship with this nationally recognized health system, as well as our tradition of providing compassionate medical care to residents of Northwest Missouri.
We are still a trusted member of the community, with the same people and the same mission of exceptional care and compassion. This is more than a name change, this is our promise to you that in every single interaction you have with us, you can insist on and expect an exceptional experience.
St. Francis Hospital is a fully accredited, full-service health care organization. We provide emergency care and acute treatment for residents of Nodaway County. Our services also reach into the surrounding rural counties of Andrew, Atchison, Holt, Gentry and Worth, Missouri and Taylor, Iowa.
As first instituted by our foundress, Mother Augustine Giesen, we continue our commitment to 'turn no one away.' We pledge to treat all patients without regard to race, color, religion, national origin, handicap, age or ability to pay.
