A message from President and CEO Michael Horne, EdD, MPP

Over the last 127 years, Parkland has advanced wellness, relieved suffering—and has developed and educated our patients, staff and future caregivers. Thanks to supporters like you, we continue in our quest to improve health outcomes across Dallas County.

Most recently, this quest has included opening the Red Bird Health Center. Indeed, by providing vulnerable Dallas County residents access to comprehensive health care services closer to their homes, we are helping individuals to get healthy and stay healthy. Moreover, the expansion of our community-based pediatric behavioral health program will help save lives, and can serve as an industry model for early mental health intervention.

Ultimately, we know that private investments in Parkland are catalytic—and will help ensure we can activate data-informed and scalable healthcare solutions. And in doing so, we will create the conditions in which more residents will be equipped with the tools they need to live healthy and productive lives—contributing to Dallas County’s economic vitality.

At a time when we have seen so many health challenges, we find solace in knowing that you stand for Parkland. Thank you.

Warm Regards,

The resilience of a young heart

Tyler, 9, was in a car accident and came to the Parkland Burn Intensive Care Unit with severe burns on his arms and feet. His dominant right arm was amputated below the elbow. Tyler’s injuries were life-changing, but that didn’t change his love of life. From singing Luis Capaldi songs to simply making people laugh, he brightened the days of the staff who cared for him.
