Trauma Center

After Fred Halstead was rear-ended by a car going 70 mph, he was rushed to The Rees-Jones Trauma Center at Parkland and treated for a concussion, severely broken wrist and cracked ribs.

He had never been to Parkland as a patient and soon realized the Level I trauma facility doesn't just treat injuries. Parkland focuses on a patient’s recovery, rehabilitation and re-entry into a healthy, active life. For Fred, that meant healing, getting back to playing golf, exercising and spending time with his grandchildren.
