We fulfill our promise to those we serve by delivering Healthcare That Works, Healthcare That Is Safe and Healthcare That Leaves No One Behind, for Life.
Our passionate commitment to Healthcare That Is Safe has led to Ascension’s pursuit of unprecedented improvements in healthcare quality. We know we can eliminate all preventable injuries and deaths by spreading evidence-based healthcare practices around the world. We reinforce our commitment by:
•Delivering holistic care, meeting the physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs of everyone we serve.
•Becoming a High Reliability Organization with processes, behaviors and teams in place to prevent errors and improve patient and associate experience.
•Establishing interdisciplinary teams of senior executive leaders, managers, frontline caregivers, and quality/risk and IT professionals to meet ever-changing healthcare needs.
Ascension Health formed Ascension in 2012 to further its Mission of serving all persons with special attention to those who are poor and vulnerable, and to deliver person-centered care and lead healthcare transformation in the United States. Restructured as Ascension, we are better positioned to meet the evolving needs of the people and communities we serve in the rapidly changing healthcare environment. Today, we continue an 800-year legacy and promise set forth by our original sponsor organizations to provide faith-based healthcare to those in need.
In addition to healthcare delivery, Ascension subsidiaries provide a variety of services and solutions including physician practice management, venture capital investing, treasury management, biomedical engineering, clinical care management, information services, risk management and contracting through Ascension’s own group purchasing organization.
