Dell Seton Medical Center at The University of Texas, a 211-bed teaching hospital, opened in downtown Austin in 2017. The new facility is built, owned and operated by Ascension Seton, a member of Ascension, the largest non-profit health system in the U.S. and the world’s largest Catholic health system. It will accommodate more patients than its predecessor and can be expanded in the future. The medical center is the primary teaching hospital for Dell Medical School at The University of Texas at Austin.* Ascension Seton, which has borne most of the costs for graduate medical education in Austin since 2005, is committed to continuing this support in partnership with University of Texas at Austin. The new medical school is the first to be built at a Tier 1 U.S. research university in nearly half a century. Ascension Seton has played a major role in shaping the school’s signature curriculum and research efforts, which include a focus on creating a more efficient and effective healthcare system and training future physician leaders.
A primary focus of the hospital is the application of innovative medical processes and products that deliver person-centered care “at the bedside.” Ascension Seton physicians, nurses and other professionals will build upon a history of medical research with their UT Austin counterparts. In addition to working with Dell Medical School, Ascension Seton teams will collaborate with many of UT Austin’s colleges and departments, such as Nursing, Pharmacy and Engineering. Physicians who want to practice the most advanced medicine will be drawn to Central Texas to care for patients, alleviating a regional shortage of doctors.
