People who choose healthcare as if their lives depended on it choose Dallas for obvious reasons, and one of the most obvious is the University of Texas Southwestern Medical District, a 231-acre concentration of peerless medical knowledge, expertise, and clinical care. The District encompasses both medical and health sciences schools and four affiliated hospitals including Parkland Hospital (now the massive New Parkland), the William P. Clements, Jr. University Hospital and Children’s Medical Center Dallas. It’s a place where leading researchers and teachers look for tomorrow’s cures (the UT Southwestern staff numbers six Nobel laureates with 4 Nobel laureates still active) while pioneering clinicians save lives today.
