The new name, once adopted, will be “Ascension Seton.”
By creating more consistent names for its facilities and services across the country, Ascension will better connect every aspect of care and innovation across its hospitals and other sites or care.
Seton has been part of Ascension since 1999. Ascension is the nation’s leading nonprofit health system, with 2,500 sites of care and 36,000 providers in 22 states and Washington, D.C.
“Working together as part of Ascension has enabled Seton to improve the care we provide by bringing the knowledge and resources of thousands of medical professionals across the country to our own physicians and caregivers,” said Craig Cordola, Seton President and Chief Executive Officer. “Adding the Ascension name to our own reflects the strength of being part of this national network.”
Patients will continue to see the doctor they know and trust, but with the added reassurance that their physician is connected to other experts and specialists across the state and across the country, all dedicated to providing care specific to their individual needs.
Innovations made possible through Seton’s work as part of Ascension will enable patients and their families to connect with their caregivers when, where and how they need it, as we continue to develop ways to improve communication and care in locations that are convenient and accessible, as well as through phones and computers.
