Parkland’s Mandates

  • As the payer of last resort, Parkland is mandated by Federal law to treat those who are in need, whether indigent, uninsured, undocumented or legal citizens

  • Under the Federal Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act (EMTALA), a hospital with an emergency department must provide any individual who comes to its emergency department with an appropriate medical screening to determine whether or not an emergency condition exists, and if it does the hospital must stabilize and treat the patient (42 U.S.C. § 1385dd(a) & 42 U.S.C. § 1395dd(b) and (c))

  • By law (42 U.S.C. § 1395dd(g)), hospitals with specialized facilities such as burn units, shock-trauma centers, or neonatal intensive care units shall not refuse to accept an appropriate transfer of an individual who requires such specialized capabilities or facilities if the hospital has the capacity to treat the individual

Parkland’s Role in Our Community

  • Proactive Public Health Service

  • Public Health System

  • Safety-Net Provider

    • Academic Medical Center

    • Regional Provider of Care

Parkland’s Challenges

  • Age of current facility

  • Functionality and space constraints

  • Code compliance issues

  • Increase in patient population

    1990 – 1,852,810 2006 – 2,345,815

    2000 – 2,218,899 2035 – 3,600,000

  • Patient mix (indigent (uninsured/underinsured), undocumented, and out of county)

  • Attracting 3rd party payers

Parkland’s Challenges

  • INDIGENT (Uninsured/Underinsured)

    • Uninsured and underinsured population is growing

    • Local tax dollars are expected to bear more of the burden of indigent healthcare due to Federal and State cuts

    • As of 2007, the Commonwealth Fund study estimated there are 25 million underinsured adults in the U.S., which is a 60% increase from 2003

    • According to The Families USA report, healthcare premiums for Texas’ working families rose by 70.7% while the median earning rose by only 10.3% from 2000-2006

    • Persons in Dallas County without insurance were estimated at 530,000 in 2000; 633,522 in 2005; and are projected to be 829,000 by 2011

Parkland’s Challenges


The Health & Safety Code Section 311 requires nonprofit hospitals to provide community benefits, which include charity care and government-sponsored indigent health care.

Parkland’s Challenges


  • Reimbursement for undocumented patients come from three sources.

    • MEDICAID, under federal law, pays for the delivery of children to mothers who cannot provide citizenship

    • TITLE V federal program pays for prenatal care

    • SECTION 1011 of the Medicare Modernization Act of 2005 provides for federal reimbursement of emergency healthcare for undocumented and certain other specified aliens

Parkland’s Challenges


The 1985 Indigent Healthcare and Treatment Act established that counties are responsible to

(1) create a hospital district/taxing unit;

(2) operate a public hospital; or

(3) operate a County Indigent Health Care Program by contributing up to 8% of the county’s general levy for resident’s healthcare.
