Inside the New Parkland Hospital

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.
