The Southwestern Medical District delivers renowned health care in partnership with innovative, world-class research and education.

The District – bordered by Mockingbird Lane, Medical District Drive, the Stemmons Freeway (I-35), and Maple Avenue – includes a 390-acre medical complex which employs a workforce of more than 30,000 people. Its medical facilities attract more than 2.2 million patient visits a year to its clinics and hospitals, providing services from pediatric preventive care to geriatric services, from life-saving emergency care to heart transplants.

Parkland Memorial Hospital was the first facility to open in the District in 1954 and soon partnered next door on Harry Hines Boulevard with UT Southwestern Medical Center. Then came what is today known as UT Southwestern St. Paul University Hospital in 1963, Children's Medical Center Dallas in 1967, and UT Southwestern - Zale Lipshy in 1989.

The District's future is one of growth and advancement. Children's underwent a major renovation in 2011 that included a 10-story tower that added services and expanded capabilities. Construction continues on the $1.271 billion new Parkland hospital campus. The 2.5 million-square-foot facility is scheduled to open in 2015.

And UT Southwestern's new $800 million state-of-the-art medical facility - the William P. Clements Jr University Hospital - is rapidly changing the West Campus skyline. The 12-story, 1.3 million-square-foot hospital is slated to open in late 2014.

A 500,000-square-foot biotechnology park on 13 acres, called BioCenter at Southwestern Medical District, is attracting innovative biotech companies to the area as well as increasing research opportunities.
