Message from Bishop W. Shawn McKnight regarding St. Mary’s Hospital announcement

SSM Health’s renewed commitment to our communities, in its decision to invest in St. Mary’s Hospital – Jefferson City, is very good news for all of us. This announcement means we will continue to have access to quality health care, in a Catholic environment, which enhances the quality of life for all in our region.

We must recognize this decision means that all of us – health care professionals and health care recipients – must respond with a reciprocal investment in St. Mary’s. Our loved ones will be healthier when St. Mary’s Hospital is healthy. Together, we can make our communities better.
