Dell Seton Medical Center at The University of Texas
Dell Seton Medical Center at The University of Texas is a teaching hospital and the centerpiece of a new health district in downtown Austin. It’s so much more than just a new building. From day one, the medical center has redefined the future of healthcare in our community.
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 Seton hospital and three existing ones (Seton Medical Center Austin, Seton Shoal Creek Hospital 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.
