In a large stockpot over medium-high heat, add 6 cups of water and the great northern beans. Bring to a boil and let cook for 10 minutes. Remove pot from heat, cover, and let beans sit for 1 hour. When ready, drain and rinse beans, then set nearby.
In a 5 1/2 quart (or larger) crock pot, add smoked ham (whole), celery, carrots, black pepper, and prepared great northern beans. Pour in the remaining 6 cups of water on top and sprinkle with oregano. Cover and cook on high for 5 hours (or 10 hours on low).
Add green beans to crock pot and cook on high for another 25 minutes.
Remove ham from crock pot and cut into bite-sized pieces. Return cut ham to crock pot and stir in balsamic vinegar and salt.
Serve soup immediately.
