Dallas Morning News, December 3, 2008
Executives at Baylor Health Care System Inc. will unveil plans for a $15 million, three-year project to transform a South Dallas recreation center into a diabetes health and wellness institute. Baylor wants to use the rec center to fight diabetes with an onsite physician and nurse practitioner, nutrition and cooking classes, and a diabetes drug distribution system. The Dallas-based hospital system will ask the city for an additional $2 million in construction costs for recreational areas; structural repairs to the roof, exterior walls and parking lot; and maintenance of the adjacent 20-acre park.
