IBC Foundation Recognized at Special Event
The IBC Foundation recently received recognition as an outstanding donor during a private donor appreciation event for Dell Seton Medical Center at The University of Texas. Seton Fund, the development arm of Dell Seton, honored IBC with a commemorative plaque to thank the organization for its generous donation of $100,000.
"IBC's support of Seton's newest teaching hospital, Dell Seton, perfectly embodies our mission of doing more for the communities we serve," said IBC Bank-Austin CEO Bob Barnes. "We are thrilled to see the completed facility and are excited for the opportunities it will bring, not only for the students of the medical school, but also for the people of Austin and the surrounding areas."
Dell Seton, set to open next month, will serve as the primary training site for students at The University of Texas at Austin's Dell Medical School. The new facility, in partnership with Dell Medical School and Central Health, will provide care for the safety net population, provide for more doctors and specialized care, and discover new treatments. Dell Seton is anticipated to serve as Central Texas' only adult Level I Trauma Center.
"The Seton Fund is grateful for generous donors like the IBC Foundation," said Charley Scarborough, Dell Seton executive director of development. "Because of IBC's donation, Seton is able to invest in patient-centered technology and systems at Dell Seton. The opening of our new teaching hospital will bring more than innovation—we're helping to provide access to a better system of health care for all people."
After the event, IBC Bank Executives along with Dell Seton board members toured the new facility. A public celebration of the hospital will take place on Saturday, May 13, 1-5 p.m., at Dell Seton Medical Center at The University of Texas, 1500 Red River Street.
