Dallas County commissioners set Parkland hospital bond election
Dallas Morning News, August 13, 2008
Dallas County commissioners have approved a Nov. 4 bond election for a new $1.2 billion Parkland Memorial Hospital. If the measure is approved, up to $747 million in tax and revenue bonds will be issued to help pay for the new hospital. The rest will come from cash that Parkland will put up as well as charitable donations.
The new Parkland, if approved by voters, would be the largest hospital built in the nation in years, officials have said.
