“Employee health and safety are crucial to the success of our City. Our partnership with Ascension is the means by which we provide quality medical treatment to our employees. From the onset of employment, through any worker’s compensation or fitness for duty issues we know our valued employees are in good hands. There are few certainties in Human Resources, but I can always count on Ascension to provide efficient and friendly medical care.”

“Our Corporation has been associated with Ascension for many years. As a large chemical company, we must follow comprehensive medical procedures and they continue to meet our occupational health needs. They provide our pre-placement exams, return to work exams, periodic health evaluations and random drug screens without incident. Dr. Vosburgh and his staff always take time to discuss matters over the phone or meet with us whenever necessary. Over the years, the staff has remained professional, efficient and thorough. Our partnership has grown to feel like Ascension works exclusively with us.”

Everyone we’ve sent to the office has been seen and treated in an efficient manner. Wait times have been very minimal in comparison to the clinic I was using on my last project. We have over 300 workers on site and I have had no complaints from them regarding treatment or waiting times. This is rare!”
