We empower you to lead your best life.
We empower you to lead your best life.
Your health matters. It influences how you think and feel. It affects your relationships, your productivity – and it frames your outlook on life. When your health suffers, everything suffers.
We believe something this important shouldn’t be passively addressed or pushed out for an appointment. And it certainly shouldn’t be ignored. That’s why we have reimagined modern primary and urgent healthcare, pediatrics and mental health therapy with services that put you and your family first.
Through an innovative combination of a Mobile Care Team – which comes to your home, work or wherever you are around town – and 24/7 virtual telehealth, we’ve removed the inefficiencies of traditional healthcare to focus on what’s best for you: a holistic approach to health and wellness that treats mind and body together.
What do we mean when we say we put you and your family first? Our team will take their time with you every step of the way. No more being rushed through appointments, no more travelling across town to go to doctor’s office and no more taking vacation days for routine visits. Ascend Medical is personalized healthcare, the way it should be – putting you first, delivered on your terms and treating you as a patient for life.
It’s our mission to provide patient-first accessible healthcare anytime, anywhere.
At Ascend Medical, we are committed to quality care above all. We follow the highest standards of care and offer the latest medical information and world-class care options for our patients, their families and our communities. We provide a safe, secure environment for our patients, partners and staff and have designed our virtual and in-person visits to be comfortable and family friendly. We’re committed to openness and transparency in all of our relationships, methods of care and successes.
