"Working together as part of Ascension will allow Ascension Illinois to bring the knowledge and  resources of thousands of medical professionals across the country to our own physicians and  caregivers in order to improve care," Keith Parrott, Ascension Illinois ministry market executive, said in an April 1 news release. "Adding the Ascension name to our own reflects the strength of bringing the expertise of our national healthcare ministry to those we are privileged to serve in Illinois."
