The H-E-B Grocery Co. has donated $1 million to the capital campaign for the Dell Seton Medical Center at the University of Texas, announcing the contribution during the April 8 unveiling of a mosaic in the lobby of Seton's newest teaching hospital.
The donation will support Seton's goal to improve the health of Central Texans, said Seton, which is a division of Ascension, the largest nonprofit health system in the United States and the world's largest Catholic health system. The San Antonio-based grocer also is a sponsor of the mosaic mural, which depicts a healthy Central Texas as illustrated on thousands of art tiles painted by students in the Austin, Dripping Springs and Round Rock school districts; Seton employees; and community members.
“H-E-B’s commitment and involvement in the community has been an important part of the way we do business for more than a century,” said Jeff Thomas, H-E-B SVP and general manager for the Central Texas region. “We’re proud to support Seton in its effort to improve health care for Central Texans, and look forward to the future of care in this community.”
On May 21, University Medical Center Brackenridge will close its doors and Dell Seton – which was designed with input from more than 500 doctors, nurses, educators, product designers and former patients – will welcome its first patients. The new hospital will be the main teaching facility for students of Dell Medical School at The University of Texas at Austin, which will soon admit its second class. Dell Seton will provide advanced care for conditions like stroke, brain disorders and serious injuries.
Because of a shared community-oriented mission, H-E-B has invested more than $7.8 million throughout Seton’s network since 1970.
