Enabling the Enablers

We love big ideas and innovative approaches. That's why we work with nonprofit organizations and all levels of government to analyze data and offer solutions that go well outside the box.

As a statewide membership organization, KYHA turns to Ascendient when we need an independent, data-driven perspective on state healthcare issues. Throughout our long relationship, they've come through every time.

Higher Thinking for Government, Associations & Foundations

Healthcare at a Higher Altitude

At Ascendient, we work with all levels of government to ensure that communities can access the healthcare resources they need. At the local level, that often means working with public officials to find a more sustainable business plan or a more committed partner for the county-owned hospital. Our methodical, data-driven process helps elected leaders understand their options, choose the best path forward, and build support in the community.

And while boots-on-the-ground healthcare consulting will always be core to our mission, we also know the value of taking a high-altitude view. That's why we help foundations, associations, and government agencies seeking to find regional or statewide solutions to healthcare's most perplexing problems. With our real-world experience and expert data analysis, we can offer large-scale strategic planning, performance evaluation, system design, needs analysis, and much more.

Think tank perspective meets practical know-how – that's the unique combination we bring to our government, association, and foundation clients, including:
