Welcome to SMP Health System. Our story begins in 1902 when the first Sisters of Mary of the Presentation arrived in North America as religious exiles from their native France. They established their first hospitals in Spring Valley, Illinois in 1903 and Bottineau, North Dakota in 1913. What they started at that time now includes quality care delivered by our three critical access hospitals and six nursing homes in North Dakota and our hospital and home health agency in Illinois.
We are proud of our history rooted in the Sisters of Mary of the Presentation, our sponsor. Their charism and spirit animates our work to fulfill the healing mission of Jesus Christ in the Catholic tradition. We are proud of the work we do and those who do it. Whether you are seeking care or seeking employment, I think you will find our faith-based health care ministries prepared to meet your needs and expectations. I hope you will take some time to learn about them by exploring our website.
