New Clements University Hospital to redefine patient experience
In late 2014, UT Southwestern’s William P. Clements Jr. University Hospital will open its doors, transforming medical care in North Texas and serving as a model for academic medical centers across the country.
“Our vision is to provide the very best patient care possible, and to do so while training the next generation of caregivers and conducting research that addresses some of the most important challenges in medical science,” said Dr. Daniel K. Podolsky, President of UT Southwestern Medical Center.
To that end, every aspect of the new hospital has been carefully considered. “We’re bringing together innovative hospital design, state-of-the-art technology, and industry best practices to create an environment that seamlessly integrates patient care with leading-edge research and medical education. Everything we’ve done, and every decision we’ve made, has been to better serve our patients,” Dr. Podolsky said.
Construction of the hospital is now more than 80 percent complete. Here, Center Times provides a preview of what the new hospital will offer and how all the elements come together to serve patients and their families.
