As the Daughters of Charity depart Central Texas this year and entrust Seton Healthcare Family's mission to lay leaders, a new vice president for mission integration has joined Central Texas' largest health care system to help ensure Seton continues the Daughters' 112-year legacy.

"I wonder if St. Vincent, St. Louise, and St. Elizabeth Ann had any idea what their ministry would look like today," Pringle said. "The task for them is the same for us, which is to live our lives becoming all that God intended. Imagine the possibilities!"

When Sister Gertrude Levy walks the halls of Seton Medical Center, she doesn’t get very far before she has to stop. It’s not so this 94-year-old nun can rest. Instead, she’s found someone who looks lost and offers him directions. Or she’s noticed that a light in a hallway is out and enlists a volunteer to have it fixed. Or she’s seen a waist-high child and stops to say hello and get a high-five.

At 9 a.m. Monday, three Eastside Memorial High School students clocked-in at Seton Medical Center.

It’s part of a program put together by the school and local hospital. Instead of class, the students report to the hospital to witness first-hand what it’s like to work in medicine.
Seton Medical Center is giving a group of Eastside Memorial students a unique opportunity. Twice a week, students pair up with nurses to learn about working in a hospital. Chris Cybulski shows what the experience means.

The conditions were not ideal for a run. The race started with humidity of about 90% and a temperature around 60 degrees.

“Interestingly, we did not see as many runners as we expected with a high body temperature,” said Pierre Filardi, M.D. and Medical Director of the Austin Marathon.

Still, the medical tent staff treated runners, including a man who had heat stroke.

“We sent a young man to the hospital whose temperature was 108,” said Filardi. “He required submersion in ice water to bring his temperature down.”

“Although I recommend the sports drink it’s not necessarily going to protect the runner if they drink too much of that from getting this condition,” said Dr. Pierre Filardi, Medical Director, Austin Marathon.

Because the weather is expected to be warmer than usual for the race, Dr. Filardi wants runners to be cautious about what’s called overhydration.

That’s when runners drink to much water or sports drink that it ends up diluting the sodium in their blood stream causing severe reactions.
Thousands of runners are planning to hit the streets for the Austin Marathon Sunday morning.

A child obesity study published earlier this year in the New England Journal of Medicine found that children who were obese or overweight by kindergarten typically remained that way into eighth grade.

Mario Longoria, MD, a bariatric surgeon for Seton Medical Center Williamson wrote about recent changes by The American College of Cardiology, the American Heart Association and the Obesity Society who jointly recently released new guidelines for the management of obesity. These guidelines – the first of their kind in 15 years – encourage physicians to have more serious conversations with overweight and obese patients about their weight.

Are movie theaters damaging your hearing?

“Certain types of high-spectacle movies, such as Transformers, have decibel levels of 90 for almost the entire movie and have decibel levels of 120 for significant periods and at some points get to 130 decibels. Now 130 decibels is a jet engine at about 10 meters,” says Dr. Bedolla.

Dr. George Rodgers of the Seton Heart Institute and his wife, Leslie Hyland Rodgers, apparently know that, if their recent You Tube video is any indication. Leslie, an accomplished singer, actress and model, performs a cover of Col Porter’s classic “Night and Day,” from her album “Just Smile.”

Prominently featured is Dr. Rodgers, falling in love over and over on the lake, on the golf course and especially on the dance floor. And it’s quite requited. As his wife notes in her online biography, “Leslie is very happily married to cardiologist Dr. George Rodgers, the love of her life and the healer of her heart emotionally and spiritually”

Take me to your leader! 

No these aren't aliens from the planet Remulak. They are three SMCA employees who just completed annual respirator training and fit testing. SMCA trained and fit tested 1544 associates in a two-week period – to meet this OSHA Regulatory requirement and keep the associates safe from airborne contaminates!
