SSM Health is a Catholic not-for-profit integrated care delivery network serving the comprehensive needs of communities in Wisconsin, Illinois, Missouri, and Oklahoma.

As SSM Health continues to evolve and better meet the needs of the unique communities it serves, dedicated teams of exceptional caregivers remain committed to the organization’s 145+ year heritage of healing.

SSM Health believes that exceptional health care is more than medicine; it’s about presence – taking time to listen, to understand, to answer questions, to hold a hand, or even to pray.

With histories dating back to the early 1900s, Dean Health System and St. Mary’s Hospital have provided care to generations of families in Madison. The SSM Health Janesville campus, which includes St. Mary’s Hospital – Janesville and Dean Medical Group – Janesville East, opened in 2012.
