Zale Lipshy Pavilion – William P. Clements Jr. University Hospital is a treatment center for inpatient and outpatient physical rehabilitation, spine conditions, ophthalmology, orthopaedic issues, and oral and maxillofacial surgery.
It’s located on Harry Hines Boulevard, in the Southwestern Medical District, across from Parkland Memorial Hospital. The Southwestern Medical District and Zale Lipshy Pavilion are just east of Interstate 35E, and minutes away from both downtown Dallas and Love Field Airport.
A referral hospital for North Texas and the entire southwestern U.S, Zale Lipshy Pavilion provides coordinated, compassionate care to patients and families, administered by highly trained physicians utilizing state-of-the-art technology.
When it opened, UT Southwestern was the only medical school in the country without its own private referral hospital. To fill that critical need, UT Southwestern administrators began planning in the early 1980s for a facility and secured the support of the Zale Foundation in their efforts.
In 1984 officials chose a location adjacent to Parkland Memorial Hospital for the new UT Southwestern hospital. Groundbreaking occurred in June 1987, and Zale Lipshy University Hospital was dedicated and officially opened in November 1989. In September 2019, the name changed to UT Southwestern Zale Lipshy Pavilion – William P. Clements Jr. University Hospital.
