As one of the largest academic anesthesiology departments in the United States, we serve a number of prominent health care facilities in Dallas:
The William P. Clements, Jr. University Hospital (known as ‘CUH’), opened in late 2014 and is one of two hospitals within UT Southwestern Medical Center. This world class 460-bed 12-story facility incorporates 1.3 million square feet of space and includes twenty-four state-of-the-art surgical suites. CUH supports a prominent heart and lung transplant program. Over 1,800 cardiothoracic and major vascular cases are performed annually by our cardiothoracic surgeons and anesthesiologists. Anesthesia coverage ranges from ophthalmologic surgery to liver transplant, orthopedic to thoracoscopic surgery, and plastic surgery to gynecologic oncology. CUH also sees an active obstetrical anesthesia practice. Finally, the Regional and Acute Pain Service provides the entire range of perioperative analgesic care.
Parkland Hospital is a major teaching facility with an illustrious history. Parkland is widely respected as a leading trauma center and as one of the finest public hospitals in the Country. Parkland provides a diversity of surgical cases. Working at Parkland is challenging, yet fulfilling, with more than 25% of the cases designated as emergency cases. Within the division of Obstetric Anesthesiology, of the more than 12,000 deliveries per year, almost half are categorized as high risk. The Parkland Pain Management Service sees ambulatory and in-patient referrals from a range of primary care and specialty physicians. A wide range of treatment options are offered, including specialist medication manipulations, physical interventions, and a multidisciplinary pain management program. Additionally, the goals of an active Acute Pain Service (APS) include: 1) to improve pain management of hospitalized patients; 2) to educate residents in the techniques of acute pain management; and 3) to direct clinical research in pain management. The APS also manages non-surgical pain as in severe trauma, multiple fractures, extensive burns, carcinomas, acute radiculopathies, chronic pancreatitis, sickle cell crisis and acute-on-chronic pain.
The New Parkland Hospital opened in August 2015 (just 1 year after CUH!). This impressive facility encompasses 2.5 million square feet. A part of an evolving new Parkland health care campus, Parkland Hospital is a full service acute care hospital with 862 single-patient adult rooms—a thirty-eight percent increase in bed space compared to the previous facility which was built in 1954. There are 27 general operating rooms, a Women’s and Infants’ Specialty Health Clinic with nine labor and delivery rooms, a ninety-six room neonatal ICU, a new Outpatient Surgery Center and new Medical and Surgical Clinics. Parkland Hospital is connected by a sky bridge to the UT Southwestern Campus and Zale Lipshy University Hospital.
Zale Lipshy University Hospital is the 2nd UT Southwestern Hospital within the UT Southwestern Medical Center. It is located across the street from Parkland Hospital. Surgical services at Zale include neurological surgery (including cerebrovascular, spine, & functional neurosurgery), interventional radiology (including acute stroke interventions), orthopedics, otorhinolaryngology, psychiatry, and oral and maxillofacial surgery. There are approximately 6,000 anesthetics per year performed at Zale Lipshy University Hospital. Zale Lipshy University Hospital is the inpatient home for the UT Southwestern Brain Institute and Spine Center. It houses a 20-bed neurointensive care unit, neuroanesthesiology, stroke & inpatient neurology, physical medicine and rehabilitation, and post-operative units for neurosurgery, ENT, and orthopedics.
Ambulatory surgery is conducted not only at Parkland’s Ambulatory Surgery Center, but also at the UT Southwestern Outpatient Surgery Center (OSC).
The Eugene McDermott Center for Pain Management is a prominent, endowed center at UT Southwestern. It treats approximately 7,500 patients each year from a wide variety of age groups. By incorporating an interdisciplinary approach to pain management, a team of physicians, nurses, behavorial health professionals, and physical therapists treat a variety of complex, acute, and chronic pain syndromes within a state-of-the-art facility, which includes dedicated fluoroscopy, pulse radiofrequency generators, and operating rooms.
Other affiliated facilities include the VA North Texas Health Care System, Children's Medical Center Dallas, and Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children.
The Dallas/Fort Worth metropolitan area is one of the largest metropolitan areas in the United States and offers a rich and broad variety of social, cultural, and sporting events. Winters are generally mild and outdoor opportunities for recreation abound. DFW International Airport and Love Field Airport allow for quick and easy travel to anywhere in the United States. Dallas is many things—an affordable place to live, a convenient place to learn, and a great place to have fun. The medical center is located just northwest of downtown Dallas and is surrounded by a variety of neighborhoods, while also being easily accessible to a number of suburban areas including Irving, Las Colinas, and Plano.
