Public Health Preparedness Fund

As the only public health system in Dallas County, Parkland depends on the generosity of dedicated supporters to sustain our high level of care through public health emergencies, such as the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

Generous, long-time Parkland champions established the Public Health Preparedness Fund in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. This fund will help Parkland respond to the most urgent needs that come with delivering quality, compassionate care in Dallas County during the current COVID-19 pandemic, while also building the capacity for Parkland to make an immediate impact locally when the next public health emergency arises.

As cases of COVID-19 continue to emerge in North Texas, donations to the fund are helping provide:

  • UV light disinfectant systems that can eradicate “superbugs” like COVID-19
  • Drive-through screening sites at Amelia Court on the main Parkland campus and Ellis Davis Field House
  • Walk-up testing sites outside Red Bird Mall in South Oak Cliff, outside Inspired Vision Compassion Center in Pleasant Grove and Sam Tasby Middle School
  • On-site testing at select Parkland community health centers and mobile vans
  • Furniture and additional staffing to accommodate a surge in patient volume
  • Assistance for employees whose work hours have been impacted by COVID-19
  • Additional needs as they arise to fight this global pandemic here at home

You Can Help!

Our immediate goal of $10 million will support Parkland in its mission to provide care to anyone in need. Your donation will help Parkland continue to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic at hand swiftly and effectively. For more information please contact Cindy Scott, vice president of development, at or 214-266-2021.
