We want to give the best care possible. That’s why we are coming together as Ascension to offer a more diverse range of doctors and open up communications between caregivers across Wisconsin. By better connecting your care, we’re able to better care for you.
We Are Ascension
Coming Together in Wisconsin to Give Healthcare a Better Name
Compassionate, personalized care has a new name in Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Washington and Sheboygan Counties. Columbia St. Mary's is now known as Ascension. The signs on our buildings are changing, but the care you’ve come to expect for more than 165 years has not. Everything you like about your relationship with your doctor will stay the same. In fact, Columbia St. Mary’s has already been a part of Ascension, a nationwide health system, since 1999 and our Mission to care for all, especially those most in need, will never change.
One of the largest providers of care in Southeast Wisconsin, we joined Ascension in 2016, though we’ve been combining new technologies and innovative treatments with a compassionate, healing environment for more than a century. Our Mission, Vision and Values guide everything we do, and emphasize the respect and dignity of our patients, associates, and the communities we serve.
Honored to have served Northeast Wisconsin for more than 125 years as Affinity Health System, Fox Valley area doctors, hospitals and clinics are now coming together under the Ascension name. Rest assured, everything you like about your relationship with your doctor will stay the same. In fact, we already have been part of Ascension’s national network of care for more than four years, giving your provider access to experts and resources across the country which can then be adapted to your situation.
Serving central and northern Wisconsin for more than 125 years, Ministry Health Care joined Ascension in 2013 and recently brought hospitals, doctors and clinics together under the Ascension name. While the signs on the doors have changed, your relationship with your doctor and our Mission to care for all, especially those most in need, remains steadfast.
By uniting under the Ascension name, the hospitals you know and trust are gaining access to even more resources to improve care. But don’t worry, the things you love about them aren’t going away.
- Primary care doctors
- Hospital and clinic locations
- Our commitment to making our communities stronger, healthier and better
- More diverse range of doctors and specialists
- More streamlined care
- Access to Ascension’s network of experts
