    Workers are putting the finishing touches on the new Parkland Hospital in Dallas.

    Recently, Parkland CEO Dr. Fred Cerise gave NBC 5 an exclusive tour of the $1.3 billion facility. "This is going to put us in a position to take care of patients for many years to come," Cerise said.

    The state-of-the-art facility is one of the largest hospitals under construction in the world.

    New Parkland has:

    • 862 single patient rooms with private bathrooms
    • 17 floors
    • 2 helipads
    • 27 operating rooms
    • 154 ER treatment rooms
    • 44 labor and deliver rooms

    The new Parkland Hospital replaces a 1950s era building. Construction on the new building started in 2010, and it will open to the public on August 20.
