Excellence in Care for Moms and Babies

At Ascension Seton Medical Center Austin, we deliver – every day. Our expert teams of caregivers deliver the quality of care for which Ascension Seton has been known for more than a century. And because we offered the first neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) in Austin more than 35 years ago, we’ve been caring for high-risk pregnancies longer than anyone in Central Texas.

At Ascension Seton Austin, moms and babies receive special attention and individualized care in a comfortable and welcoming environment for patients and families.
