As the largest not-for-profit health system in the U.S., and world’s largest Catholic health system, Ascension is committed to delivering person-centered care to all with special attention to the poor and vulnerable.
Anthony R. (Tony) Tersigni is the first Chief Executive Officer of Ascension, assuming the role in 2012 when Ascension was formed as the parent organization of Ascension Health. He has more than 35 years of experience in leading and managing health systems.
Across Ascension, we provide a healthcare safety net for millions of people who might otherwise go without healthcare – particularly those who are poor and uninsured. Through our community benefit programs, Ascension provides access to medical care beyond the walls of our hospitals and directly to individuals who need it most. We work in the communities we serve to improve access to care, enhance the health of communities, advance medical or healthcare knowledge and relieve the burden on other community efforts.
