Ascension is proud to offer military veterans rewarding career opportunities where their experience is valued. Our open and highly collaborative work environment allows veterans to identify and share ideas across disciplines so together we can build a better future in healthcare. Join our veteran talent network today to find a new band of brothers and sisters within Ascension.
Our associates are the foundation of our work to fulfill our mission – especially our veteran associates. We offer a comprehensive benefits package inclusive of medical, dental, vision, retirement, and generous PTO. Veterans and their families can also take advantage of other great benefits like tuition reimbursement or adoption assistance.
We embrace who you are as a veteran and we will invest in your future. We have various in-depth leadership programs to meet you where you are on your post-military career journey.
Transforming healthcare starts with taking care of our associates and that rings especially true with our veterans. We provide our veterans the resources and tools to help them proactively manage their physical, spiritual, and emotional well-being.
Our Mission, Vision, and Values guide everything we do at Ascension. They are foundational to our work to transform healthcare and express our priorities when providing care and services, particularly to those most in need.
In 2018, Ascension provided over nearly $2 billion in healthcare to those in need and without access. You will have the opportunity to offer your servant's heart by volunteering with Ascension’s Medical Mission at Home program and other community initiatives.
For us, work is more than the place we go each day. It’s an environment that nurtures relationships, cultivates talent, and supports our associates to better understand those we serve so we can provide holistic care that treats the whole person: body, mind and spirit.
"At Ascension, we are truly trying to change the way we deliver healthcare in the future. We're not just focused on providing care in 2019, we're looking at 2035 and asking where healthcare will be then. We need folks who are innovative and can think outside the box. A lot of veterans' career experiences are outside the box; they've been put in very ambiguous situations and delivered. Those are the people we need to come with fresh ideas that can move us to the future."
Mike Huerter, Vice President of Operations at Ascension Technologies and United States Army Colonel, Retired.
"Now that I am in the Army Reserves, my commitment is one week a month of drill as well as two weeks of annual training throughout the year. One part of why I love working for Ascension is that they are so accommodating with those obligations that I have as a reservist. Working with Ascension allows me to continue to serve, although I'm serving in a different capacity."
Sontaya Sherrell, Senior Solutions Specialist at Ascension and United States Army Veteran and current Army Reservist.
