Currently in Central Texas, our healthcare system is treating significantly more COVID positive patients than we have at any time since the beginning of this pandemic. As COVID-19 hospitalizations continue to rise, Ascension Seton is closely monitoring COVID‐19 developments and U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidance, while working daily in partnership with our local and state health departments.
With an abundance of caution and discernment, our medical, clinical and operational leaders have decided it is in the best interest of our community we not proceed with hosting the Seton Development Board gala on December 5, 2021.
As a non-profit healthcare system, our top priority remains the health and safety of our patients, associates, volunteers, visitors, and ultimately, our community. While we had hoped to gather in-person at this event after postponing from November, the current COVID surge and strain on the healthcare system in Texas will prevent us from recognizing and celebrating our caregivers and patients in person. Unfortunately, hosting the event at this time may jeopardize the very same people we are trying to help and support with the event.
We are grateful for the event volunteers, attendees, sponsors, vendors and partners who make this event possible, especially for their dedication through the uncertainties and heartbreak. We can not thank them enough for their patience and resiliency.
