The primary teaching hospital for the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center (UTSW), the organization offers an unparalled clinical and educational environment. With deep community ties and an unwavering commitment to serving patients from all backgrounds, Parkland has uncommon reach and impact on maintaining the health of an entire region.
Reporting to the Chief Executive Officer, the COO serves as a key member of the organization's senior leadership team.
