Description

In 1954, Parkland Memorial Hospital moved into a new building on Harry Hines Blvd. The same year, the word "Memorial" was added to Parkland's name to commemorate those who died in World War II. The new Parkland was adjacent to the planned new home of Southwestern Medical School. The close proximity would facilitate Parkland's role as the primary teaching hospital for Southwestern Medical School.
