SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children's Hospital

A nonprofit organization

When SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children's Hospital opened its doors in 1956, we ushered in a new era in American medicine as the nation's first free-standing Catholic children's hospital. The field of pediatrics was in its infancy and many of our programs and services were among the first of their kind in the nation.

Throughout the hospital's history, we have been uplifted and sustained by the generosity of those who choose to give of their resources to ensure a healthy future for the children of our region. By giving to SSM Health Cardinal Glennon, you join the hundreds of caregivers and staff who are dedicated to making sick children well.

Your gift has unlimited potential for impact and enables us to meet the greatest needs of the hospital, including exceptional clinical care, supportive services, community outreach and cutting-edge research.


Community support is vital to the Mission of SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children's Hospital: "Through our Exceptional Health Care Services, we Reveal the Healing Presence of God."
