Parkland - Get The Facts

How the Parkland bond monies will be used...

Parkland Hospital's Board of Managers and the Dallas County Commissioner's Court unanimously approved a resolution to call an election for Tuesday, Nov. 4, 2008 and ask Dallas County voters to approve a $747 million bond program.

If approved, the bond package monies will be used to:

  • Construct an 862 adult-bed hospital that serves as a full service acute care hospital and houses a Level I Trauma Center and Burn Center;
  • Construct an outpatient center adjacent to the hospital with associated diagnostic and therapeutic service, and integrated physician office space to enhance patient safety and physician access and productivity;
  • Construct office buildings near the hospital for support personnel, designed to optimize productivity and minimize occupancy costs; and
  • Reconfigure parking to supply a cost effective mix of parking garages and surface parking lots to meet the parking needs of patients, visitor, physicians and employees.
