The 1 You Need
Seton Healthcare Family is now home to the only two Level I Trauma Centers in Central Texas. University Medical Center Brackenridge and Dell Children's Medical Center have earned Level I Trauma certification - the highest level of trauma care in the nation, as named by the State of Texas in conjunction with The American College of Surgeons.
What is the Level I Difference?
As Level I Trauma Centers, UMC Brackenridge and Dell Children's are providing the very best possible trauma care to the citizens of Central Texas. Level I Trauma Centers have more access to leading-edge research that directly impacts the medical care we provide. Patients are treated by specialists 24-hours a day and experience improved survival and recovery rates as a result of the expertise and technology available at our facilities.
Leadership in Education and Research
Patients cared for by the Seton Family of Hospitals benefit from the leading-edge academic research and the evidence-driven medical training conducted within our facilities. The Clinical Education Center, a multi-disciplinary medical education facility, trains students in simulated settings with the high-fidelity interactive mannequins.
Comprehensive Resources for Critical Care
Qualifying for Level I Trauma Center designation has required a major financial investment, along with countless hours of work from our dedicated professionals – all in an effort to bring even more resources to the region.
Caring for You
More resources are available around the clock, including emergency surgery and microsurgery, as well as expanded behavioral health resources, to deliver specialized care whenever the need arises.
