Founded in 1902, Seton Healthcare Family is the leading healthcare provider in Central Texas. Its 100-plus clinical locations, including four teaching hospitals, strive to provide the highest quality person-centered care at a low cost. Seton is a member of Ascension, the world’s largest Catholic health system.
Seton Healthcare Family’s executive leaders are deeply committed to removing institutional barriers so employees can enter, grow and develop within the organization. To achieve this, they established the Workforce Development Council, which includes the Vice President of Human Resources, Chief Nursing Officer and Chief Advocacy Officer, to facilitiate strategic decision making and resource allocation. Thus far, the Council has aligned the Advocacy, Diversity, Nursing Education, and Human Resources efforts to shape the Office of Workforce Development & Diversity and maximize its impact. The Office oversees the coordination of Seton Healthcare Family’s workforce development strategy and works to empower employees and fill high-demand positions. Currently, the department is making learning and career pathways more accessible by expanding existing efforts to employees and the local community. The department also oversees institutionalized internship efforts such as Project SEARCH, Ann Richards School for Young Women Leaders Internship and the San Juan Diego Catholic High School Work Study Program.
