Healthcare when moving to Dallas Fort Worth

There’s a reason that the healthcare industry is considered a “supersector” in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. With multiple major healthcare systems in the area – either as headquarters or major regional presences – the DFW area is home to more than 100 hospitals, more than 17,000 beds, and more than 13,000 physicians who practice at least 175 specialties.

The Dallas region is also an international medical center for burns and trauma care, a leading transplant center in the Southwest – and also has the largest single-site baby delivery facility in the nation. Consider that, in 2007, more than 16,000 babies were born at Parkland Memorial Hospital.

And, UT Southwestern Medical Center’s Southwestern Center for Minimally Invasive Surgery is one of just seven facilities across the United States and Canada (and the only one in Texas) to receive first-time accreditation from the American College of Surgeons for its $2 million training lab.
