AUSTIN (KXAN) — It’s a big month for Seton as they open up their newest teaching hospital later this month.

To celebrate, the Dell Seton Medical Center at The University of Texas opened its doors Saturday afternoon for a public open house.

The event was at the hospital, which is located on 15th Street and Red River. Festivities kicked off with a parade down 15th Street — which sits between the two hospitals — from the old University Medical Center Brackenridge to Dell Seton, led by the Reagan High School marching band.

 

People then got the chance to tour the new hospital, which will have several features never seen before in an Austin hospital.

“We really looked at the efficiency,” said Christann Vasquez, president of Dell Seton Medical Center. “One of our missions is the education and training of the next generation so we have learning spaces in the hospital so the caregivers can come together and train the next generation.”
