Dallas-based Parkland kicks off its first capital campaign
Dallas Morning News, September 11, 2008
Parkland Memorial Hospital's foundation has kicked off its first capital campaign in hopes of raising $150 million from private donors to help build a new Dallas County public hospital. The five-year "I Stand for Parkland" campaign already has pledges totaling nearly $80 million. The current hospital, which was built in 1954, has become overcrowded and outmoded over the years, hospital officials say.
