Ascension Seton Hays

Here we “grow” again! This past year, Ascension Seton Hays has been busy adding additional clinical resources to support our pursuit of a Level II Trauma designation and our drive towards being one of the “top 10” performing hospitals in the country. Our team of nurses perform their jobs knowing the importance of what a life means to both their patients and their loved ones. In the words of one of our patients, Ascension Seton Hays nurses are heroes and angels on a mission to relieve pain and serve others.
