Ascension Seton will begin construction on a new women’s health tower on its Ascension Seton Medical Center Austin campus in the fall, officials announced Jan. 25.

The tower will cost $320 million and is part of a broader expansion of Ascension Seton’s women’s health services across Texas, according to a press release. 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.



The tower will be built on the south side of the Ascension Seton Medical Center campus, at W. 38th St., Austin. It is expected to open in fall 2024, according to the release.

The name of the women’s health tower will be announced at a later date. https://healthcare.ascension.org/
