What is Parkland?
While serving as a safety net provider for the county's indigent population, Parkland serves every citizen in Dallas County as a Level 1 Trauma Center and regional burn center. 62 percent of trauma cases in Dallas County are treated at Parkland.
The Parkland Burn Center is the second largest civilian center in the U.S. and is regarded as among the best. Our staff developed the world-renowned standard in burn care – “The Parkland Formula.”
Parkland’s care for the large percentage of those in need helps keep other local health care systems economically viable, thus affecting health care for all.
