In today’s fast-paced world, access to personalized, compassionate healthcare is essential.

In this blog post, we’ll guide you through setting up and using this patient portal, making it easier than ever to take control of your health journey.
Understanding the Borgess Health Portal
The Borgess Health Portal is an online platform designed to empower patients by providing access to their medical records, test results, and other healthcare information. It serves as a central hub where you can securely communicate with your healthcare providers, manage appointments, request prescription refills, and explore personalized health resources. Here’s how you can make the most of this portal.
Setting Up Your Borgess Health Portal Account
Before you can access the Borgess Health Portal, you’ll need to set up your account. Most locations offer two separate portals – one for hospital visit information and another for office visit data. Ascension Borgess simplifies this by offering a single portal for all your medical records. You can sign up using one of the following methods:
- Visit any registration desk in your local Ascension hospital, provide your basic information, and receive an email with an activation link. Follow the prompts to complete the sign-up process.
- Call your Ascension Medical Group doctor’s office or speak to them during your visit.
- Fill out the form provided on the portal’s website.
It only takes a few minutes and four simple steps to set up your personal patient portal, available 24/7 from your computer, tablet, or mobile device. If you have questions, don’t hesitate to call 800-828-8135 for assistance.
