Parkland is one of the busiest public hospitals in the nation, with more than 1 million patient visits each year. Demand for Parkland's services continues to grow.
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.
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.
