We Give To Give…
the best care to our patients

You’re an Ascension Seton associate — a member of a special, talented group of people who understand what it means to truly care for people. You give so much each day to our patients. By giving through We Give to Give, you’ll extend your care for our patients and make an everlasting impact on the future of care in Central Texas. By giving back you’re taking care of people in so many ways, including:

  • Providing clothes for a patient who needs them
  • Offering check-ups for children who visit our mobile Care-a-Vans
  • Helping coworkers pay for nursing school
  • Lending a helping hand to colleagues who’ve fallen on hard times

By giving back a little every month you help Ascension Seton serve those most in need while also offering the best care to all our patients. We invite you to join this community of compassionate colleagues in giving back between now and November 27.

IN THE PAST 9 YEARS, ASCENSION SETON ASSOCIATES HAVE GIVEN BACK MORE THAN
$4 MILLION
TO CARE FOR OUR COMMUNITY!

Why I Give

Rosa Montemayor, Financial Counselor

I give because I have been there when my children where small and I received help when I needed it the most.  You know a door may close, but through giving back another one opens up to benefit others in need.

Lorrie Kirby, Clinic Manager

I strongly believe in our mission to commit ourselves to serving all persons. I believe Associate Giving supports this commitment in exciting programs like the Nurse Scholarship Endowment and facility Seton Circle grants. Donation is a gift that both small or large can make a difference.

Kristi Haskins, Community Outreach

I participate because I see the difference these funds make in purchasing much needed equipment, providing better care for our patients, funding various programs to assist our community, and keeping our associates involved in the well-being of our hospital community.

Tessy Dorantes, Program Coordinator

I serve the uninsured patients and they inspire me to give. They share with me their gratitude to Ascension Seton for the unconditional care we give. I am proud to work here.

My picture shows me with a ceramic impression of Seton Hays that my then 6-year-old daughter made. She was so proud of where I worked and it reminds me every day when I see it how important it is for me to give to others in need

Patricia Gagnon, Nurse

I have been involved in Associate Giving for about the last 8 years because I believe in the Ascension Seton Mission to give back when you can. I give to help anyone and everyone.  I have seen vein finders purchased to help with difficult IVs, SMCW’s great veterans program and the reinvention of the labyrinth walk. It is important for staff to have a voice and when they give through We Give to Give their voice will be heard.
