Zale Lipshy University Hospital Founders Sign


Zale Lipshy is one of two UT Southwestern University Hospitals, which collectively earned “Best Hospital in Dallas-Fort Worth” recognition from U.S. News & World Report for 2017-18.

UT Southwestern neurology and neurosurgery programs are nationally ranked in U.S. News & World Report listings.

Our neurological surgeons have performed more surgeries to prevent aneurysmal hemorrhage than any other medical center in the U.S.

For four consecutive years, Zale Lipshy University Hospital has received the Press Ganey Pinnacle of Excellence Award for maintaining consistently high levels of patient satisfaction.


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.
