New Parkland Hospital

Parkland Health & Hospital System
Dallas, Texas, USA

The new Parkland Hospital is a $1.27 billion healthcare facility replacing the existing Parkland Memorial Hospital built in 1954. The HDR + Corgan Joint Venture team led the design for a master plan of a new 64-acre healthcare campus, as well as for the 862-bed full-service acute care replacement hospital.

From its inception, the design for the New Parkland Hospital has been distinctly about this medical center's relevance in connecting to the city's urban fabric, and importance as a civic anchor. The combination of its physical relationship to multiple modes of public transportation, and the incorporation of "linear parks" as major design elements for orientation and navigation, established a strong developmental framework for the overall conceptual development. Additionally, the building massing, while iconic, is an honest expression of Parkland's healthcare program and operational requirements.
