Why Work Here

In this Section

On behalf of our entire Senior Leadership Team,
welcome to 
Ascension Columbia St. Mary’s. 

Ascension Columbia St. Mary’s you are valued member of a health care system with a proud and distinguished tradition of providing medical excellence to southeastern Wisconsin for more than 160 years. Together, our team of staff and physicians consists of the finest medical experts – many of whom are considered to be pioneers and visionaries in their field.

It takes a considerable number of people with many different skills to provide patients and their families with the care they need. In every medical specialty and in every department, these individuals all have one thing in common. They share a passion for patient care.

When our patients come to us – or when families entrust their loved ones to our care – they are at their most vulnerable. It is a very personal, very individual experience for each of them. When they leave our care, they have benefited greatly from our medical technology and skill. More importantly, they have been touched by the human elements of our excellent care throughout their experience.

With great enthusiasm, integrity and generosity all of these men and women share their heart, courage and optimism with those who need it most. Therefore, whether you are caring for a patient at the bedside, in one of our clinics, supporting our healthcare environment, or welcoming a patient to our front doors - you are part of a team where your skill is surpassed only by your sense of caring and pride.

Thank you for choosing 
Ascension Columbia St. Mary’s and welcome to our team.
