Featuring 12 floors and 460 beds, the new $800 million dollar hospital at the University of Texas(UT) Southwestern Medical Center was inaugurated last Thursday in a dedication ceremony.  The William P. Clements Jr. University Hospital is a patient-centered, state-of-the-art medical innovation serving Dallas and the North Texas region, and it will replace the 50 year-old St. Paul University Hospital.

“The William P. Clements Jr. University Hospital represents an enormously important step for the medical center,” said the President of UT Southwestern, Daniel K. Podolsky, M.D. “The hospital is a vehicle for our physicians, nurses, and staff to provide the best possible care and experience for patients by bringing together our three-part mission: excellence in patient care, the education and training of current and future caregivers, and research that improves the care and health of people everywhere.”

The opening of the hospital, which is located at 6201 Harry Hines Blvd. in Dallas, is planned for December 6. The facility will offer patients 40 emergency treatment rooms, 24 surgical suites, 12 procedure rooms, 72 adult ICU rooms, and 16 labor and delivery rooms across its 1.3 million square feet of hospital space. In addition, it also includes 30 neonatal ICU rooms and 3 obstetric specialty surgical suites.
