“At Saint Thomas Health, our mission is 100-percent access to care for all persons,” said Karen Springer, president and CEO of Saint Thomas Health and senior vice president of Ascension Healthcare. “We are working with Oscar to continue providing personalized care to our communities, with special attention to those most vulnerable.”

Oscar’s platform, which combines an intuitive smartphone app and website with a personalized concierge team service, makes it easier for members to navigate their health care needs by putting health data and resources all in one place.
