Clinic named in #honor
of longtime CEO
For nearly three decades ( 😱 #29
years🤠 🔯 ) Ron J. Anderson, MD was Parkland Health & Hospital System’s president and CEO and a champion of healthcare for the #uninsured
. He was #committed
of those in need and was a #drivingforce
behind the campaign that led to passage of a #bondpackage
in 2008 to build a new Parkland Memorial Hospital.
Although he died in 2014, Dr. Anderson’s presence will be felt when the new ambulatory clinic bearing his name opens on Jan. 17, 2017 on Parkland’s Harry Hines campus. Under his leadership, a #network
of community-based health centers was developed and today a dozen clinics are located in historically #underservedneighborhoods
throughout Dallas County.
The five-story, 227,420 square-foot clinic is approximately the size of four football fields. Comprised of 171 exam rooms, the clinic also houses four MRI’s, five CT scanners, three radiology and seven ultrasound rooms with expansion capacity. A #pharmacy
, which will operate 24/7, is located on the first floor.
