In this new role, Brierty will oversee three Ascension Seton hospitals: Dell Seton Medical Center at the University of Texas, Ascension Seton Shoal Creek and Ascension Seton Medical Center Austin, according to a Jan. 16 news release from Ascension Texas.

Brierty will oversee day-to-day operations in the hospitals and will lead development of strategy and policy for each hospital, according to the news release.

“We are incredibly fortunate to have Tim [serving on the executive team at Ascension Seton, as he has proven to be a compassionate and effective leader,” said Christann Vasquez, chief operating officer of Ascension Texas, in the news release.
