The Seton Healthcare Family, a member of Ascension, is a faith-based non-profit health care system founded in 1902 by the Daughters of Charity. Called to be a sign of God’s unconditional love for all, Seton strives to expand access to high-quality, low-cost, person-centered care and services.
Seton offers a different brand of healthcare. We call it Humancare. It’s healthcare that thinks with its heart. We believe in showing everyone dignity and respect while providing the best care possible. It’s how we’re healing healthcare—one human at a time. That’s Humancare.
Seton operates more than 100 clinical locations, including four teaching hospitals that will be training sites for Dell Medical School at The University of Texas starting in 2016.
One of those training sites is Dell Children’s Medical Center of Central Texas, a world-class pediatric medical center with its own Level I trauma center. Another is University Medical Center Brackenridge, which is Central Texas’ only Level I trauma center for adults. UMC Brackenridge will be replaced by the new Dell Seton Medical Center at The University of Texas in early 2017. The other two teaching hospitals are Seton Medical Center Austin, the region’s largest medical facility, and Seton Shoal Creek Hospital, the area’s only nonprofit mental health facility.
Seton conducts research in the prevention and treatment of stroke, traumatic injury, epilepsy and cardiovascular disease. It collaborates with employers, commercial insurance companies, community physicians, nonprofit agencies and government entities to create clinically integrated systems of care with providers throughout its 10,000-square-mile service area.
Partners in providing healthcare include the Austin Independent School District; the Health Alliance for Austin Musicians; and Central Health, Travis County’s health care district. An example of innovative health care delivery is Seton’s and Central Health’s Community Care Collaborative, a unique and ambitious integrated delivery system for Travis County residents living at or below 200 percent of the Federal Poverty Level.
Seton employs about 12,800 and is a major contributor to the Central Texas economy. Over the past decade, Seton has donated $2.9 billion in care with help from generous donors and volunteers.
See what just a few of our 2,000 active volunteers have to say about why they donate their time and the value they see in helping patients and families.
Volunteers are needed in many departments, including Emergency, Day Surgery and ICU. Non-clinical areas of service include gift shops, cafe, and the information desks.
People of all ages are encouraged to volunteer. We even have special programs for college students and teenagers. Join our family today.

We envision a strong, diverse and inclusive health ministry that embraces our similarities and differences to address the health needs of all Central Texans.
The Seton Healthcare Family’s commitment to diversity and inclusion has existed since the Daughters of Charity first envisioned high-quality healthcare for all, with a special concern for the sick and the poor.
Today we are called to provide Healthcare that Works, Healthcare that is Safe, and Healthcare that Leaves No One Behind.
As the communities we serve have become more diverse, Seton has identified the diversity of and inclusion in our family as one of the core characteristics of our organization.
Our workforce is evolving to reflect the diversity of our patients. By employing associates who understand the health beliefs and practices prevalent in the community, we can help patients feel more welcome and better understood.
We also ask associates to better appreciate each other’s differences and similarities. This is why we highlight different cultural aspects of diversity, providing associates with the opportunity to learn from – and grow with – one another.
At our best, the Seton Family is in tune with even subtler dimensions of diversity – how individuals share information and listen, offer help and advice, and perform in teams.
From your first day, learning opportunities and experiences create pathways for individual growth and development.
A general orientation program supports your transition into the Seton Healthcare Family team.
A wide variety of instructor-led and online classes are available to support your educational development.
