Ascension Seton Dripping Springs Health Center held a grand opening Nov. 12 to celebrate bringing a new primary care office to the Dripping Springs community.

Located at 249 Sportsplex Drive, Ste. 204, Dripping Springs, the office will be led by physicians Brian Jameson and Catherine Edwards.

“We're excited to be part of the community,” Jameson said. “The people that are coming to staff this location live here and want to be active members of the community and help the community grow.”

Jameson, who is from Austin and currently lives in the Headwaters Community in Dripping Springs, said Seton has worked to expand into more rural areas surrounding Austin. Before opening the Dripping Springs health center, he said he worked opening a new Seton health center in Elgin in East Travis County.

“These [new health centers] can provide high quality care to these rural markets and provide them with the resources that Seton has,” he said. “They can provide pretty comprehensive, thorough care under one umbrella and all in town.”


The Dripping Springs location will serve as a primary care office, offering annual checkups, minor acute care and preventative care to the community. Jameson said the goal is to introduce more specialty services—including urology and cardiology—over time or on a rotation.

“Eventually, a lot of that is going to be here, but for now, there is Ascension Seton Southwest Hospital that’s 8-10 miles down the road,” he said. “That’s not far for our specialty services.”

Ascension Seton Southwest Hospital is located at 7900 FM 1826, Austin. A second hospital, Ascension Seton Hays Hospital, is located at 6001 Kyle Parkway, Kyle, less than 25 miles from downtown Dripping Springs. 512-324-9570. https://healthcare.ascension.org
