A message from President and CEO Michael Horne, EdD, MPP

Years of social inequity and injustice – in healthcare and in almost every other facet of life – have brought us to a point of deep reflection and an understanding that we, as both a health system and a society, need to do more.

Parkland’s investment in community health centers, including our entry into the Red Bird and Jubilee Park neighborhoods, will provide vulnerable Dallas County residents access to the services they need to get healthy and stay healthy.

In addition, initiatives such as our new program to extend care for mothers after pregnancy will help save lives and can serve as a model for addressing rising maternal mortality rates across our country.

New moms get a new approach to care

The gap between where Medicaid coverage ends and the first year postpartum is when more than half of all maternal deaths in Texas occur.

A new program at Parkland is filling the gap left by Medicaid, extending care after delivery to a full year to ensure women like Taelor receive the healthcare they need after childbirth to address complications before they become fatal.
