Our Impact

Since 1966, more than $495M in generous gifts to the Seton Foundations have transformed care in Central Texas. These gifts have allowed Seton to be the first to provide a neonatal intensive care unit, heart transplants, Level 1 trauma care, and a world-class pediatric medical center in our community, changing the lives of central Texans and the hundreds moving here each day.

Over the past decade, Seton has provided over $2 billion in charity care to those who are poor and vulnerable in Central Texas. Last year, Seton Ascension Texas provided nearly $250 million in charity care for persons living in poverty and over $480 million in community benefit programs, as defined by the State of Texas.
