UT Southwestern Medical Center faculty has been caring for patients at Parkland Memorial Hospital for decades, providing diagnosis and treatment for virtually every type of condition or disease. Licensed for 983 beds, Parkland is Dallas County’s only public hospital and one of the country’s largest.
Just minutes northwest of downtown Dallas on Harry Hines Boulevard, Parkland is home to a Level 1 Trauma Center and a Burn Center, both of which are internationally recognized. Parkland is also home to the first Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) in Dallas County and has the largest Level III NICU in the region. The hospital is also known for its specialty medicine clinics for epilepsy treatment, arrhythmia management, and diagnostic cardiology, among others. Its emergency room is one of the busiest in the country.
Parkland is UT Southwestern’s primary teaching facility. More than half the doctors practicing in Dallas received some of all of their training at UT Southwestern, under the supervision of UT Southwestern faculty.
In 2015, Parkland moved into a new 2.5 million-square-foot facility, just across Harry Hines from the old building. UT Southwestern faculty continue to serve patients in the new state-of-the-art facility while training the physicians of tomorrow in the most advanced diagnostic and treatment techniques.
