Emergency Services

emergency-iconIf you are experiencing a psychiatric emergency, please go to the closest emergency department for evaluation. If you are located in the downtown Austin area, visit Dell Ascension Seton Medical Center at the University of Texas at 1500 Red River Street.

A psychiatric care physician is available 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. at Dell Ascension Seton, making it easier for patients to receive the spectrum of care in the same location.

Family members and visitors of psychiatric emergency room patients may call 512-324-7000 for information about their loved one.

A community-wide continuum of care

Ascension Seton is proud to be part of Travis County’s crisis care system. As a strong community partner, we are working closely with Integral Care to coordinate our psychiatric crisis services with those at the newly opened Judge Guy Herman Center for Mental Health Crisis Care, and its Mobile Crisis Outreach and Psychiatric Emergency Programs.

Together with Integral Care and other local emergency departments, Ascension Seton continues to develop an optimal crisis care continuum to provide the best care possible for the Central Texas community.
