The name Parkland derived from the land on which the first hospital (this is the third one) was built, originally purchased by Dallas as a park. The new Parkland Hospital is 17 stories high, cost $1.3 billion and served over one million patients last year so let’s get a first-hand view of the campus where great things happen every day. They do not offer public tours but TIAA has arranged for a private tour thanks to our Treasurer, Kate Newman. We will leave on a bus from Texins Expressway site at 10:00 am to visit this Dallas gem, eat at Norma's Cafe and return about 2:00 pm. Cost will be $15 for members and $17 for nonmembers.
