Nondiscrimination & Accessibility Notice
Ascension Michigan 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 we 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 ensure that the care and services we provide are accessible to all patients.
- 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.
Discrimination Is Against The Law!
All Ascension Michigan entities comply with applicable federal, state, and local civil rights laws, and do not discriminate against or exclude anyone on the basis of race, creed, color, national origin, ancestry, citizenship, religion, sex or gender (including pregnancy, childbirth and related medical conditions), sexual orientation, marital status, age, newborn status, genetic information, handicap, ethnicity, culture, language, physical or mental disability, socioeconomic status, military service or veteran status, gender identity or expression (including transgender status), source of payment, or any other class protected under federal, state, and/or local law. Ascension is also committed to serving all patients and members of the public according to their needs and providing care and services to all persons on an equal basis.
To meet these commitments and guiding principles, Ascension Michigan provides, free of charge, appropriate auxiliary aids and other services and accommodations to disabled individuals where reasonable, and where the accommodation does not fundamentally alter the nature of the services or result in an undue burden.

- Provision of qualified sign language interpreters;
- Access to written information in other formats (large print, audio, accessible electronic formats and other formats);
- Allowance of service animals that are trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of persons with a disability.
Ascension also provides free language services to people whose primary language is not English, such as qualified interpreters and information written in other languages. If you need these services please contact your local Ascension Michigan hospital, local numbers can be found at healthcare.ascension.org.
