New Parkland Hospital


In 2008, Dallas County voters approved the $1.3 billion bond program that would provide the funding to replace the aging Parkland Hospital with a new inpatient and outpatient campus — the New Parkland Hospital (NPH). Parkland is a nationally recognized facility for patient-centric care and will serve as a sustainable community resource for Dallas County for decades to come.

Community Healthcare Partners (CHP), Brandt’s joint venture, was selected by BARA (Construction Management Team) and the NPH Project Delivery Team to provide mechanical and plumbing design and construction on this important project. Specifically, Brandt is providing design-assist pre-construction and construction mechanical and plumbing services. CHP’s project team has a proven track record with BARA team members for completing quality projects in an efficient, timely manner while staying focused on being good stewards of the project budget.

The new campus will consist of:

  • Acute Care Hospital (~ 2,108,000 sf)
  • WISH Clinic, core and shell (~ 115,000 sf)
  • Parking for 2,000 vehicles
  • Central Plant
  • Other Support Facilities and Sitework

CHP’s scope of work includes all the mechanical, plumbing and medical gas equipment design and installation.
