Acute Care Hospitals

Persons with dementia are at a higher risk for numerous serious medical problems compared to those who are cognitively intact.  Fortunately, there are  multiple acute care hospitals in Central Texas to care for these elders when they are at their most vulnerable.  There are national non-profit hospitals like those within the Ascension Seton system, national for-profit facilities like the St. David’s hospitals, and regional medical facilities like those within the Baylor Scott & White network.  One of the most recent additions to the healthcare landscape is Dell Seton Medical Center at the University of Texas (aka Dell Seton).  

Within the region there are multiple Level 1 trauma centers, comprehensive stroke centers, cardiac transplant centers of excellence, and epilepsy monitoring units.  There are also psychiatric facilities with expertise in caring for elderly persons, including those with memory disorders.
