The 2017 Medical Mission in Kyle had an enormous impact in the local community.
Thanks to our more than 400 associates and volunteers, we served 287 families (almost 1,000 people) on Saturday, January 28, 2017. Below is the initial breakdown of the services we provided:
- 336 Adult medical services
- 265 Dental services
- 130 Pediatric medical services
- 38 Immunizations
- 36 Lab tests
- 25 Diabetes education
- 24 Cardiology services
- 18 Dermatology services
- 21 Behavioral Health assessments
Through kind donations from our associates and community members, we also donated more than 500 new and/or gently used coats and jackets to those in need.

I had the privilege to meet Guadalupe “Lupe” Trevino on Saturday. Normally the office manager for Seton McCarthy, where she has a stellar reputation, Lupe worked as a navigator for Medical Mission. Her gaze met that of a young lady in Pharmacy who could not believe that Seton was giving her medications for free. The patient asked Lupe, “Can I give you a hug?” At that point, a wave passed through both women and the patient exclaimed, “Oh, it’s the Holy Spirit! I’ve got goose bumps!” Mary Setterquist watched the two and described their moment as, “They made a connection – they were darling, both crying. It was super sweet.” – Adrienne Lallo, Director of Public Relations for Ascension Texas
This was also the first Mission at Home that I was able to participate in, and while it may sound like a cliché, it really did feel like I walked away with much more gained than those that came for services. Not that there wasn’t incredible care and service given to so many by incredible clinicians from throughout Ascension Texas. It was inspiring and humbling to be able to work around so many great people and do what we could for these neighbors. I’m thankful to be a part of this family and look forward to having the honor and opportunity to volunteer again for a Medical Mission at Home. – Greg H., Seton Associate
