Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas moves to new building

🕐 1 min read

DALLAS (AP) — Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas has begun moving to its new location.

The emergency room at the new site for Dallas County’s public hospital began accepting patients Thursday morning.

A hospital statement says the new 2.1 million-square-foot structure is nearly twice the size of the current hospital and has 862 single-patient rooms. High-tech kiosks provide maps, directions that can be sent by text or email plus check-in for appointments.

Hospital officials say transition of all inpatient services to the new facility, across the street from the old structure, should be completed by Saturday.

Parkland Memorial Hospital is where President John F. Kennedy was transported and died after being shot on Nov. 22, 1963.

The hospital handles about 1 million patients annually.
