At our newest teaching hospital, Seton Medical Center at The University of Texas, doctors, students and researchers will come together to find new cures and treatments. After all, staying well is no laughing matter.


At our newest teaching hospital, Seton Medical Center at The University of Texas, we'll teach a new generation of doctors how to give expert care with a human touch - and a subtle Texan accent.


We're building Seton Medical Center at The University of Texas in collaboration with The University of Texas Dell Medical School, creating a place where doctors, teachers, nurses and our community can work together to find better ways to care.
