We combined an entrepreneurial spirit with resources and support from three-hospital systems and created something truly innovative.

Founded in 2015 to build products that solve real problems for healthcare, Ascend is guided by a sense of purpose. We understand that the work we do directly impacts the lives of people and the communities we live within.

We're on a mission, together

We're passionate problem solvers and care deeply about improving our community. We have learned that developing transformative solutions requires collaboration, and we strive to build meaningful partnerships, not client lists.

A vision for improving healthcare

We envision a world where healthcare is personalized, proactive, affordable, and accessible. With actionable insights from data science combined with end-user empathy, together, we can create a positive impact on society by commercializing innovative life science products.

Our X Factor

Unique relationships, unrivaled access

Ascend brings together the power of three major hospital networks - Premier Health, Kettering Health Network, and Dayton Children's. These networks, along with the Greater Dayton Area Hospital Association, founded Ascend to commercialize life science products and provide solutions for healthcare's unmet needs.

With access to real-time healthcare data, facilities, personnel including nurses, physicians, and executives, Ascend offers an unrivaled opportunity to advance end-to-end product development in an unprecedented way.
