According to Bishop McCarthy “No one wants to go to the hospital unnecessarily but if you find yourself in Austin, Texas, and you want to see something really both wonderful and awesome, find your way to the campus of the Dell Children’s Medical Center. It has been constructed on the site of the old Austin airport by the Daughters of Charity and their many supporters in Central Texas. It is truly a wonderful place.
“I have always been intimidated by medical issues. I am not very adept at even putting a bandaid on. When I visit this wonderful hospital, I am amazed at how it changes the lives of thousands of infants and children. I cannot imagine any one person knowing how to keep that thing running.
“Well, this great hospital has an excellent leader at the helm. Sister Teresa George, D.C. , a native of Austin, is the president of the Dell Children’s Medical Center and with her leadership, her magnificent staff, together with the support of the whole Seton Family of Hospitals, Dell Children’s is a justifiable source of pride for Central Texas. Sister Teresa, or “Sister T” as she is known by her co-workers, is yet another example of that endless list of gifts that vowed religious women bring both to the internal and external life of the Church across the world. What a blessing they are, a gift to the rest of us and how thankful we should be for their generous service to the Church and the larger community.
“The Daughters have been in Central Texas for well over a century and their extraordinary work continues to expand and enrich our common life. God bless the Sisters.
