Improving the health of communities we serve

Ascension St. John held its first Medical Mission at Home on March 30, 2019. More than 500 volunteers served 180 residents, from infants to the elderly, by providing free medical care. The event truly was a team effort for a community in need. Thirty-six organizations participated in a shopping mall-like section of the event, handing out diapers and baby formula for those with young children, shoes and socks to those of all ages who needed new pairs, and bags of fresh fruit and vegetables.
