Celebrating 110 Years of Serving Central Texas


daughters of charity historical photoFrom our modest beginning 110 years ago, to our current ministry of over 2,000 associates, physicians, and volunteers, serving over 200,000 Central Texans, Ascension Providence has a lot to celebrate!

We celebrate those who answered the call over a century ago to provide care to the poor and vulnerable in Waco; we celebrate our generous donors within our community whose support allows us to continue providing Central Texans with quality care; we celebrate our dedicated team of women and men who are committed to providing compassionate, excellent care; we celebrate our continued focus of healing the sick. And our 110th Anniversary Gala did just that—with a sold out venue, we celebrated 110 years of serving our community with the safest, highest-quality, most efficient healthcare to those we are called to serve.

As we celebrate the journey that has brought us to where we are today, we renew our vow to our community that we will never stray from the foundation on which Ascension Providence was built. For as St. Vincent DePaul once said, “God has honored us in our Call to Serve.” We are blessed with a rich history and it is a story worth sharing.
