Austin's $320M Ascension Seton women's health center starts construction

Austin’s Ascension Seton Set to Build $320M Women’s Health Tower

Ascension Seton has started work on its women’s tower in Austin. The tower will cost $320 million and is part of a broader expansion of Ascension Seton’s women’s health services across Texas. It will provide advanced women’s clinical services, including urogynecology, gynecologic oncology, breast diagnostics and surgery. The facility will also allow for increased patient capacity and training space for future caregivers.

When completed in the spring of 2025, the facility will have capacity for 7,500 deliveries a year. It will include neonatal intensive care units and C-section suites. There will be areas for minimally invasive gynecologic surgeries and an expanded antepartum space, and more:

  • Dedicated OB-GYN emergency department;
  • Teaching and learning center; and
  • Growth for other women’s services.

The tower will be built on the south side of the Ascension Seton Medical Center campus, at W. 38th St., Austin.
