As Central Texas grows, so does the need for comprehensive women's health services. To meet those needs, Ascension Seton in Austin, TX is building a women's tower on the Ascension Seton Medical Center Austin campus dedicated to your care needs.
The 282,000-square-foot tower will provide capacity for innovation in maternity care, maternal-fetal medicine, a dedicated space for OB-GYN emergencies, and expanded subspecialty gynecologic care in collaboration with UT Health Austin, the clinical practice of Dell Medical School at The University of Texas at Austin. It will also create more options to receive urogynecology, gynecologic oncology, minimally invasive gynecology and breast diagnostic care.
Here are three benefits of what this comprehensive approach to women's health services means for your care:
1. Personalized care in one place
Having a centralized place to receive comprehensive women's health services makes getting the care you need easier. The women's tower at Ascension Seton will serve you at every stage of your lifetime with gynecologic services, from well-woman exams and maternity care to menopause and incontinence care.
2. Advanced care for expecting mothers
If you are an expecting mother, the women's tower will create more space to deliver your baby with state-of-the-art technology, more appointment availability, and multidisciplinary care teams. This tower allows for 8,500 deliveries and has double the size of NICU to treat our tiniest patients.
The women's tower will have a care team in one location to treat some of the most complex and rare diagnoses. "Neonatology, maternal-fetal medicine, OB-GYNs and other specialists will be all in one location to serve you," shared Wesley Tidwell, President of Ascension Seton Medical Center Austin.
Having your doctors in one location allows for real-time collaborative diagnosis and treatment to create the best treatment plan for you and your baby. The women's tower is also just two miles from Dell Children's Medical Center, making providing the best care for moms, children, and their families easier.
3. Emergency care when you need it
There will be a dedicated OB emergency entrance available when emergency care is needed to quickly treat complications during your pregnancy.
