Rooted in the loving ministry of Jesus as healer, we commit ourselves to serving all persons with special attention to those who are poor and vulnerable. Our Catholic health ministry is dedicated to spiritually centered, holistic care which sustains and improves the health of individuals and communities. We are advocates for a compassionate and just society through our actions and our words.
Diversity & Inclusion
We recognize that our workforce should reflect and celebrate the diversity of the communities we serve. We provide a workplace based on respect and inclusion for all associates. Our goal is to appreciate all our associates’ differences and similarities, striving to be in tune with subtle elements of diversity such as valuing how our associates may share information, listen and offer advice in various ways based on their backgrounds.
Inclusivity and Diversity are demonstrations of Ascension’s Mission, Values and commitment to social justice. Here, inclusion shows up in how we value differences, welcome individuals to serve with us and ensure that each associate has the opportunity to flourish professionally and personally. We support this through safe spaces to have conversations focused on changing hearts and minds. The ABIDE framework (Appreciation - Belongingness - Inclusivity - Diversity - Equity) assists us in fostering a more inclusive and welcoming environment for all associates.
Work is more than a place we go each day. It’s an environment that nurtures relationships, cultivates talent and supports a positive culture for our associates. The Kudoboard, an online appreciation tool, is one of many ways we can contribute as a community to give kudos to our teammates and other associates throughout our integrated health ministry.
