The new 2.5 million-square-foot Parkland campus is located on the northeast corner of Harry Hines Boulevard and Medical District Drive. At nearly twice the size of the current hospital, the new Parkland has been designed to meet the ever-changing needs of Dallas County – one of the largest, fastest-growing regions in the country.
Every aspect of the new Parkland hospital was thoughtfully planned to enhance the patient experience but still preserve safe, quality care. Our leaders traveled across the country to visit other successful hospital building programs. What we learned from those experiences will give Parkland’s patients the best medical facilities Dallas County has to offer. See some of these facilities this video tour from the Irving Community Television Network.
The 862 single-patient rooms with private bathrooms and space for families and visitors offer just one example of the improvements for patients in the new hospital. The new campus also promotes an environment of healing by incorporating natural lighting and a wellness garden. One of the many distinct design features is the image of trees on the lobby glass. When seen closely, the trees are actually made of the names of the thousands of Dallas County citizens who support Parkland.
Throughout the construction of the new hospital, we have worked to make Parkland a place that makes the citizens of Dallas County proud. By using responsible financial strategies, we have built a first-class hospital that not only creates jobs, but allows us to invest dollars back into the community. The funding used to build the hospital comes from many sources, including cash reserves and philanthropic support.
