Friends of Stephen Cal Chalmers established the Palliative Care Education Endowment in his memory to provide support for palliative care education for clinical and human service professionals working for and with the Seton Healthcare Family. Palliative care focuses on the relief from the symptoms, pain, and stress of a serious illness - whatever the prognosis - to improve quality of life for both the patient and the family. Seton's Palliative Care Program is an important component of Seton's ongoing effort to provide holistic, patient-centered care that focuses on body, mind and spirit. Funds from this endowment will support educational efforts to inform, deepen and enrich the understanding and practice of palliative care throughout the Seton Healthcare Family.

Since 1980, Seton League House has been a beacon of love for families of patients in Austin-area hospitals. League House was founded by Sr. Mary Rose McPhee, D.C., then-president of Seton Medical Center Austin. Sr. Mary Rose witnessed families sleeping on makeshift beds or in waiting rooms. Many were from outlying areas in Central Texas and could not make the daily travel or afford to stay in a hotel. She wanted to provide them with a comfortable, caring and dignified place so that they could be close to loved ones--for a day, a week, or even longer.
