Last weekend, Dell Seton Medical Center at The University of Texas opened its doors and welcomed more than 100 patients who were transported from University Medical Center (UMC) Brackenridge.
UMC Brackenridge is now officially closed after 133 years of serving the city. Ambulances carefully moved patients to the new teaching hospital, a process that involved more than a year of planning and the assistance of 1,500 employees. One such patient is Lillian Mabee, who shared her perspective on the big day.
