Ascension Medical Mission at Home, Brought to You by Providence
Ascension caregivers, including Providence, work to improve the health and wellness of people in communities across the nation, paying special attention to neighbors who are struggling. By joining with area community partners and businesses to host a local medical mission, Providence hopes to meet people where they are for a day of health and healing.
Medical Mission in Waco
On Oct. 1, the Waco Convention Center became a medical arena. Over 600 of Ascension’s Texas associates spent their Saturday delivering medical, dental and eye care to nearly 1,000 people. This heartwarming day of service enriched the lives of those who volunteered as much as it helped those on the receiving end. This was Providence’s first Ascension Medical Mission at Home:
Why Does It Matter?
Access to affordable healthcare remains a challenge for many. Ascension Medical Mission at Home is part of our national commitment to reach individuals who are uninsured and need access to healthcare services. It’s about more than one day of care—an Ascension Medical Mission at Home helps connect those who struggle medically and/or financially with long-term medical homes and insurance.
