THOT-member Parkland Health recently received national recognition for its Moody Outpatient Center that was built with sustainability and care equity in mind. The facility opened in 2021 and houses a number of specialty clinics, including the Moody Center for Breast Health, diabetes, internal medicine, and infectious disease.

The American Institute of Architects named the facility a 2023 Healthcare Design Award winner, citing the accessibility and sustainability inherent in its design and the dignity it brings to the patient population.

John Wilson, AIA, CHFM, SASHE, Director of Planning, Design and Construction at Parkland Health said of the award: “Receiving national recognition from the American Institute of Architects for the Moody Outpatient Center is a significant achievement. It validates Parkland’s vision for advancing health equity through excellence as a public health system through a prestigious award that measures design for equitable communities, ecosystems, energy, well-being, and change adaptability.”

From the excellent care they provide to the thoughtful design of the spaces where care is administered, THOT member hospitals are dedicated to communities that they serve.
