Clinical Facilities: Inpatient

Parkland Memorial Hospital and William P. Clements Jr. University Hospital are located on campus and can be quickly and easily reached without driving. Both UT Southwestern and Dallas County have built new state-of-the art hospitals. Clements University Hospital opened in December 2014 and the new Parkland Memorial Hospital is scheduled to open in mid-2015.

Parkland Memorial Hospital

Parkland Memorial Hospital is Dallas County’s only public hospital that ensures that health care is available to all Dallas County residents. Parkland was the first and still remains the primary teaching hospital for UT Southwestern’s multifaceted educational programs. All of its physician services are provided under contract with UT Southwestern. Parkland's facilities encompass 990 beds in 1.24 million square feet. It is governed by the seven-member Dallas County Hospital District board of managers, appointed by the Dallas County Commissioners Court.

In 2015, Dallas County will open a new 2.1 million-square-foot hospital located in a park-like campus on the northeast corner of Harry Hines Boulevard and Medical District Drive, just across the street from the current hospital. The new Parkland Memorial Hospital will have 862 single-patient rooms with an abundance of natural light. Each zone-designed room will include a vision panel that looks into the hallway visually “connecting” the patient with caregivers. With patient safety and best patient outcomes in mind, every aspect of the hospital’s operation will be controlled by a system of integrated digital technology. The new hospital has been designed to enable adaptation to future medical needs and facilitate the training requirements for medical students, residents, and fellows. It will have 24 surgical suites, 2 endoscopy suites, and 83 adult intensive care rooms. A library named in honor of Jack A. Pritchard, M.D., will offer a quiet place for trainees to relax and study.

Across Medical Center Drive from the hospital, the Simmons Ambulatory Surgery Center offers state-of-the-art technology for ambulatory surgical cases.

William P. Clements Jr. University Hospital

William P. Clements Jr. University Hospital, which opened December 6, 2014, replaced the 51-year-old St. Paul University Hospital. Clements University Hospital was designed to enhance the learning experience of trainees while providing the patients with a welcoming, comfortable ambiance. The 460 single-patient rooms have the latest in-room technological features and video conferencing capabilities. Nursing alcoves outside each patient’s room enable caregivers to monitor patients through specially designed privacy windows. Clements University Hospital also has conference rooms on each floor and special “touch down” areas for smaller groups of faculty, fellows, residents, and students to confer.

Located on the UT Southwestern campus, the 1.3 million-square-foot Clements University Hospital is home to cardiology, emergency medicine, general internal medicine and subspecialties, general surgery, vascular surgery, oncologic surgery as well as hematologic malignancies, obstetrics and gynecology, and orthopaedics. It also houses all of the solid organ transplant programs, as well as a Level III neonatal intensive care unit in collaboration with Children’s Healthâ„  Children’s Medical Center Dallas. Its 24 surgical suites have state-of-the-art equipment and video conferencing to facilitate intra-surgical discussions among surgeons, pathologists, and other care givers. All the effective forms of cancer therapy are available along with a tumor registry. The cancer program is approved by the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer. The gynecologic oncology service admits to 11-North.
