Seton Healthcare Family
Construction of a new University Medical Center Brackenridge is the job of Seton Healthcare Family. It will be a teaching hospital for Dell Medical School students, while also providing residencies to graduate and postgraduate medical education. Seton expects to commit $250 million to the hospital.
Seton operates more than 90 clinical locations including five major medical centers, two community hospitals, three rural hospitals, an inpatient mental health hospital, three primary care clinics for uninsured people and several strategically located health facilities. The system offers the region’s only Level I trauma centers for adult and pediatric patients. Its insurance division works with commercial insurance companies, community physicians and Medicaid and Medical Access programs for low-income persons, to assist in the management of the region’s overall health.
Seton is home to The University of Texas Southwestern (UTSW) Medical Center’s Austin medical residency programs, as well as the Seton/UTSW Clinical Research Institute.
The organization’s role in education, research and spiritual programming furthers Seton’s mission to improve the health of the communities it serves, with special concern for the poor and the vulnerable, as it prepares the region’s next generation of clinicians. In Fiscal Year 2011, Seton provided almost $350 million in charity care.
Seton is a member of Ascension Health, the nation’s largest not-for-profit health network. For more information, please visit www.seton.net.
