It starts with hands-on learning

Providing healthcare to those in need
At the heart of Ascension’s mission is providing healthcare to those who need it most. Last year alone, we provided nearly $2 billion in care to persons living in poverty and through community benefit programs. If you’re passionate about serving your community, Ascension is a great place to do just that.

Respect is one of our core values, and we believe creating an inclusive environment is crucial to our mission of healing both individuals and communities.
Medical Mission at Home
Through our Medical Mission at Home events, Ascension delivers free medical care to those with limited access and who are struggling in the communities we serve. The Medical Mission at Home provides real-time delivery of organized health and social services to those who would not have access to care with follow-up care and continuity as needed. These free community health events give low-income and uninsured populations access to needed health services.
