Parkland Hospital unveils new hospital design
Parkland, which was built in 1954 as Dallas' charity hospital, has been reconfigured and remodeled extensively over the past 56 years. But it's no longer a user-friendly place – particularly for first-time visitors.
The design of the new Parkland, which will be unveiled today, promises to create a "patient-centered" facility that will minimize confusion for visitors and promote healing for patients.
"The new Parkland will be a safe, welcoming, patient-centered, healing environment that will serve as a sustainable resource for Dallas County," said Walter B. Jones Jr., senior vice president of facilities planning and development.
