What’s a Teaching Hospital?

Dell Seton is one of four teaching hospitals for Dell Medical School at The University of Texas at Austin, which will be built around the new hospital. As a teaching hospital, the medical center trains and attracts more talented and specialized doctors to the Austin area, improving care throughout Central Texas. At this new Ascension Seton hospital and three existing ones (Ascension Seton Medical Center Austin, Ascension Seton Shoal Creek and Dell Children’s Medical Center of Central Texas), doctors train other doctors, conduct groundbreaking research and implement new treatments. Through education, training and research, Dell Seton serves as a vital link to the future of care in our community.

Transforming Healthcare Delivery, Consistent with Ascension Seton’s Mission

Delivering the best possible care with the dignity and respect everyone deserves is a mission that dates back to 1902, when the Daughters of Charity opened the original Ascension Seton Infirmary in Austin. Building a new teaching hospital in concert with a medical school allows Ascension Seton to design in features that enhance the way doctors are taught and care is delivered.
