Patient & Family Engagement

Ascension Providence is dedicated to providing the best care possible and treating everyone with dignity and respect. It’s our Humancare mission. One of the best ways we can meet this mission is to hear directly from patients and family members like you.

This effort is designed to improve the quality and safety of care Ascension Providence provides. We believe that patients and families are important allies. You can help us improve care on many levels, including:

  • Safe medication use
  • Infection control initiatives
  • Observing care processes
  • Reporting complications

More about Our Vision

By treating patients and families as partners in health, we can collaborate to provide the best care possible. Here are just some of the ways we are making a difference together:

Respect and Dignity

We integrate the knowledge, values, spiritual beliefs and cultural backgrounds of patients and families into the planning and delivery of care.

Information Sharing

Timely, complete, and accurate information helps patients and family members make decisions.


Patients and family members are encouraged to participate in care and decision-making at the level they choose.


No one interest group is always right. By taking into account what all parties think and coming up with a solution that works for everyone, we all benefit.
