Nondiscrimination & Accessibility Notice

Ascension caregivers provide compassionate, personalized care for all, especially those who need it most. We treat our patients through person-centered care that respects, includes, connects and engages every patient we serve. So what does that commitment really mean?

  • We take time to listen to our patients and provide care that is personal and specific to their mind, body, spiritual and emotional health needs.
  • We treat our patients with respect and compassion, and communicate with them in a way they can understand.
  • We establish compassionate, enduring connections with our patients and their families.
  • We engage our patients in collaborative decision making and communicate their health options in an open and transparent way.
  • We focus on helping our patients live the best quality of life possible, which includes understanding their wishes and respecting their human dignity – a core of Catholic healthcare.
