Women & Infants Specialty Health sets new records for all services Just minutes after the new Parkland Memorial Hospital opened on Aug. 20, 2015, it was business as usual in the facility’s state-of-the-art Labor & Delivery unit.

High humidity and temperatures in the ‘90s can be just as dangerous as triple-digit days. Our experts at the Rees-Jones Trauma Center at Parkland have some tips for staying safe in the summer heat.
Athletes, band members at risk during summer ‘two-a-days’ This time of the year student athletes and band members across Dallas-Fort Worth are engaging in twice-daily practices in anticipation of the upcoming football season. And even though the Metroplex averages 18 100-degree days a year, Parkland Health & Hospital System physicians warn that heat exhaustion can be deadly even if temperatures don’t hit the century mark. A combination of hig...

There are no words to adequately describe how horrendous Parkland is, I was there 4 yrs ago, had to fight them, to get my all over body MRI's, that was four years ago, Dr Mohammed Kanwar is a monster, as is the screaming, rage filled, Dr Shah, they both full on refused to allow me to see my MRI's, it's been 4 years, I still haven't seen them, I have written letters, made numerous phone calls, not allowed to see my MRI's. I have been bedridden, and, unable to function for the last eight years, due to the drug Levaquin, the former head of the FDA is under indictment, due to Levaquin. I wouldn't visit the Parkland, House of Horrors, for all of Ross Perots money.

Not a good place for a high risk pregnancy. This is a teaching hospital. Most so called docs are rather textbook in their approach and are confused when their diagnosis just doesn't fit with your symptoms, in our case lack there of. Some have an attitude when we asked questions as if to say how dare you challenge my diagnosis. Too many docs for one delivery (we saw a total of 13 in 2 days) and ALL had differing opinions. Eventually we lumped their conclusions to possible courses of action. Docs here will certainly miss warning signs of a high risk birth, mitigating risk factors are not all taken into account. If you're not a doctor or think like one, talk to someone about risks involved so you will know what to expect (labor complications, infections, birth defects and other complications relating to birth and neonatal care). You may not know what to ask, which is fine, it is the doctor's duty to inform you of such risks. If you knew what questions to ask and steps to take you'd be as good as any doc. Most of us don't so we rely on Drs expertise. For normal pregnancies with nominal complications, this hospital might be fine. Childrens is across the street and nationally ranked for pediatrics. Good luck and please take what I'm writing seriously. Don't wait until something happens to your infant.

WHAT A NIGHTMARE OF A HOSPITAL. Had a nasty bicycle accident today on the Trinity Trail. Fortunately had my cell phone and called my wife instead of 911. Being new to Dallas, we went to the nearest hospital...Parkland. I was really banged up and had bruises and blood everywhere. Sitting in a wheel chair at the check in room, in excruciating pain with a left knee bleeding and three times the normal size and seemingly the most important thing to the hospital was having the security guard demanding I stand up so he can pat me down and wand my body.... I suppose to see if I had weapons on me. Unbelievable. Almost hard to imagine. I knew then we had chosen the wrong ER. It was all downhill from there. The entire staff, to include the nurse practitioner that treated me , Samantha Bean, were completely inept and unprofessional. I'm 62 years old and almost incapable of walking at this point and the nurse practitioner basically accused me of hurting myself so I could get narcotic pain medicine. What a screaming joke. I'm laying in bed on Monday night July 4th as I type this and have to tell you that I am in no frame of mind to recount the details of the rest of the nightmare...you probably wouldn't believe it anyway. So, all I can say is go anywhere else or treat your injuries yourself.....which is exactly what my wife and I had to do with the wounds after these clowns masquerading as medical professionals did x-rays. HORRID institution and totally incapable staff. STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE. Google should have a negative star rating...reserved for instances just like Parkland Hospital ER.

My mom and dad have busted there butts working hard all their lives. Never being on welfare and their life is still a struggle. My mom can't afford health insurance and for the over year has been having abdominal pain. When to the doctor last week...paying out of pocket for the whole thing found out she has a huge tumor in her stomach not knowing if it's cancerous or not but she needs to have surgery asap. She was called by parkland today 6-15-2016 and told that they cannot accept her since she doesn't have any insurance. I bet if she was Mexican and illegal they would have. That's right I just played my damn race card. They won't accept my mother cause she is white. And I dont care what anyone has to say about about my comment.

Like it for only experience nurses/doctor. They come in 3 new students, and there's teacher. And so, the teacher teaches the students that fine for me. But, please send experience doctor for big issues. This is not minorities issues. I got another thing to say, isn't this supposedly "Hospital" not an "Hospital with different 13 or 20 nurses every 2 hours and teaching students here."

The valet parking sucks! The attendants are incompetent they allow people to cut in line forming two lines into the valet parking area causing an unsafe environment for both people parking the cars and exiting their cars. This morning one car was trying to cut into the Valet Lane causing this shuttle bus to make a u-turn and go around. As one person made this very stupid move other cars began to follow right behind them, knowing they were blocking the lane for incoming traffic going past the valet parking entrance. The bottom line is parkland valet parking system needs someone to direct traffic and keep drivers from cutting lines and causing unnecessary traffic jams and unsafe situations.

I would like to start off by saying that the nursing administration team and the security are very polite and understanding. As for the particular nurse that was taking care of my aunt and the case manager, I can honestly say that they are quite the opposite. The case manager by the name of Shaqueeta is extremely rude, defensive, short tempered and abrasive. Shaqueeta showed impatience and resistance when talking with my family concerning, my aunt's (the patient) discharge planning. She quickly resorted to threatening to call security on my cousin when he began to ask questions about the plan of care. As this was taking place, the primary nurse stood by and did not utter one word in the defense of the patient or patient's son who was being threatened and who is primary care taker of the patient. She did not do one thing to halt the rising hostility coming from Shaqueeta or to guide her back to a level of professionalism. Once out of the room, the nurse approached Shaqueeta to tell her the ongoing concerns that were being voiced after Shaqueeta left the room. This resulted in Shaqueeta ultimately calling security. It wasn't until security arrived and Shaqueeta was gone that the family's concerns were finally met with no problem.

July 2015 I was involved in a major motorcycle accident. The staff, surgeons, students completing their clinicals, and all of the people I came in contact with made my stay and surgeries as comfortable and conducive to getting back to a healthy lifestyle as soon as possible. These folks are the best of the best, and you'd be hard pressed to find another institution that delivers the level of care that they do. I am very happy that I went through a very hard, challenging chapter of my life at such a wonderful place.
