Since 1980, Seton League House has been a beacon of love for families of patients in Austin-area hospitals. Rooms are available for just $35 a night. For reservations or more information, call (512) 324-1999.

Seton League House was founded by Sister 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 trips 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.

Sister Mary Rose gathered community volunteers and inspired them to create a place that extended care beyond the halls of the medical center. As Seton has grown, so has Seton League House, from its original 4-room building to the current facility, which offers 40 rooms.

The Junior League of Austin was an early and generous supporter and the facility is named for them.

Seton League House is a program of the Seton Fund and rooms are available to anyone regardless of affiliation or ability to pay.
