New name reflects commitment to providing an exceptional patient experience

At our hospitals and clinics all across Oklahoma, employees, physicians and community members celebrated today as hospital leaders unveiled new signs along with a renewed commitment to patients. Beginning today, the hospitals, medical group and healthplexes in Oklahoma will be known as:
* SSM Health St. Anthony Hospital – Oklahoma City
* SSM Health Bone & Joint Hospital at St. Anthony
* SSM Health St. Anthony South
* SSM Health St. Anthony Healthplex
* SSM Health St. Anthony Hospital – Shawnee
* SSM Health Medical Group
Our new name reflects our unity and organizational commitment to providing exceptional health care services, improving the lives of our patients and improving the health of our communities.
“For nearly 120 years, we have had the honor and privilege of serving patients in central Oklahoma and beyond,” said Joe Hodges, regional president, SSM Health in Oklahoma.
“Today we are renewing our vow to this community and everyone we serve. While our look may be changing, we remain a Catholic health system dedicated to our Mission. Our commitment to provide an exceptional experience to every patient remains the same.”
SSM Health has been providing high-quality compassionate health care services in Oklahoma for generations, opening St. Anthony Hospital in 1898. In 1995, Bone and Joint Hospital at St. Anthony joined SSM Health, followed by St. Anthony Shawnee Hospital in 2012. Now, the SSM Health name will be used to better connect all of the facilities and services that make up its fully integrated health care delivery network in Oklahoma.
Over the coming months, the signs on the outside and inside of each of our clinics, hospitals and healthplexes will be changing over to the new SSM Health logo; however, patients will see the same providers they have come to know and trust in the same locations they are familiar with.
