Principled, family-centered care

While your child is a patient at Parkland Medical Center, we care for the health and well-being of your entire family. You’re an important part of the medical team—you know your child better than anyone and should understand and agree with any plans for your child’s care. Our doctors, nurses, therapists and other specialists will also communicate with you on a daily basis, sharing all test results and treatment plans so you can make informed decisions about what’s best for your child.

The pediatricians at our hospital encourage you to stay with your child in the hospital as much as possible. We provide overnight sleeping accommodations and complimentary meals for parents.

We’ll teach you the skills you need to care for your child with confidence once you return home—from bathing and changing dressings to using a nebulizer, administering medications and more.
