The best possible outcomes, enhanced experience for those we serve, enhanced experience for clinicians, and affordable care

Our Vision

Ascension Medical Group subsidiary logoA smarter, more coordinated system of care requires collaboration among private practice physicians, employed physicians, other practitioners and health systems. Our physician-led national provider organization, known as Ascension Medical Group, is a key component in helping Ascension achieve the quadruple aim: the best possible outcomes, enhanced experience for those we serve, enhanced experience for clinicians, and affordable care.
Central to Ascension Medical Group’s goals is to create an empowering environment that enables a community of clinicians to deliver more personalized care.

Our Care

Building a smarter network requires an integrated approach that optimizes healthcare for each person.

Ascension Medical Group has adopted a clinical care model that:

  • Utilizes the strength of a care team that supports our clinicians’ and our patients’ needs through seamless care delivery; transitions of care; disease management; and case management
  • Promotes communication, coordination and standardization
  • Provides persons what they need, when they need it, where they need it, with improved health outcomes at an affordable cost
