We can only realize our mission by engaging the diverse perspectives, gifts, skills, experiences and knowledge of our associates and those they serve. To create a community where all associates can live out our values and achieve our vision, we celebrate diversity as a strength.
"We will enjoy a sense of community based on the sharing of the talents and perspectives of our associates, physicians, governance representatives and Sponsors. We will celebrate our diversity as a strength." --Ascension Health

We also respect the religious freedom of each .associate and acknowledge their rights to act according to their beliefs to the extent that such actions are not inconsistent with the common good.
