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.
