Together we’re caring for our rapidly growing community
The Seton Fund works with our philanthropic community to support Ascension Seton’s Central Austin adult facilities, including Ascension Seton Medical Center Austin, Dell Seton Medical Center at The University of Texas, Ascension Seton Shoal Creek, as well as the Nurse Scholarship Endowment.
In rapidly-growing Central Texas, we are tasked to serve many more people, but we do so in a thriving community that values talent and innovative breakthroughs. In Austin we expect the best and healthcare is no exception—we provide the best care to everyone, regardless of their ability to pay.
Our Fundraising Priorities
At Ascension Seton Medical Center we are expanding our Mother Baby services, Heart care services, Breast Care Center, and establishing an Excellence Fund. And at Dell Seton Medical Center at the University of Texas at Austin we are establishing an Abdominal Transplant program, an Excellence Fund, expanding our Neurosciences services, and investing in cutting-edge Research, Technology and Innovation.
Last month, the Adult Abdominal Transplant Center at Dell Seton Medical Center Austin celebrated its one year anniversary. The partnership between Ascension Seton and UT Health Austin, the clinical practice of Dell Medical School at the University of Texas, has gone from strength to strength during 2022. In its first year, the transplant team has performed seven kidney donor surgeries and six kidney transplant surgeries.
Please join us in welcoming the latest Fellows to join the Ascension Seton Cardiovascular Disease Fellowship Program: Ryan Cooney, MD; Francisco Diaz Viera, MD; Sovik De Sirkar, MD.
Ascension Seton Medical Center Austin has been re-designated a level IV maternal care facility by the Texas Department of State Health Services EMS/Trauma Systems Office. A level IV maternal care designation acknowledges that the hospital provides patients with the highest level of care available.
