UT Southwestern’s new William P. Clements Jr. University Hospital is specially designed and equipped around the needs of patients and their families.
Best practices gathered from the nation’s top clinical facilities are incorporated in the design of the new hospital and fully integrate UT Southwestern’s patient care, education, and research missions – elements that make an academic medical center unique among health care providers.
One architectural feature is the hospital’s W-shaped design, which is both distinctive and functional. The W design improves patient care by enabling caregivers to have better sight lines into each patient’s room. It also makes it easier for patients, staff, and visitors to navigate the facility.
The result is a 12-floor, 460-room patient-centered hospital that utilizes innovative design, advanced technology, and best practices to provide excellence in care.
