On Tuesday, January 8 and Wednesday, January 9, 2019 Ascension Healthcare hosted four Community Conversations in Milwaukee. The sessions were held within two days, with each day hosting two sessions. The sessions on Jan. 8 were held at St. Joseph’s, located at 5000 W. Chambers St., and the other two were held on Jan. 9 at St. Francis, located at 3237 S. 16th St.

Community members were eager to share their opinions about what the community needs, health wise. According to a PowerPoint presented by Ascension Wisconsin, they’ve provided $292 million in community benefits, and so these listening sessions help them direct where their money should go into the community.
