The Dell Medical School at The University of Texas at Austin is committed to improving safety-net health care delivery in Central Texas through the development of an integrated delivery system (IDS). In July of 2014, the Central Health Board of Managers approved an affiliation agreement with The University of Texas. As part of the agreement, the Community Care Collaborative will transfer $35 million each year to UT to support safety-net healthcare delivery transformation through the Dell Medical School.
The documents available below represent Central Health’s agreements with The University of Texas System and Seton Healthcare Family, in support of the Dell Medical School at The University of Texas at Austin, University Medical Center Brackenridge, and Dell Seton Medical Center at The University of Texas.
The Affiliation Agreement between The University of Texas at Austin (UT), Central Health, and the Community Care Collaborative (CCC) is the result of a multi-year collaboration with our health care partners and the community. The agreement among the three entities formalizes the relationship as well as the transfer of $35 million per year to support the Dell Medical School.
The Ground Lease, as approved by the Central Health Board of Managers on Oct. 15, 2014, will allow Seton to construct the new teaching hospital on UT property, where students at the new medical school can be taught and trained. It will ensure the hospital continues to provide basic, safety-net services to vulnerable Travis County residents who lack health insurance.
