Parkland Health & Hospital System opened the RedBird Health Center last month. The facility will expand healthcare services to southern Dallas County with the opening via a new state-of-the-art medical facility. It will offer adult and geriatric primary and specialty care, ranging from breast cancer screenings to behavioral health, as well as pharmacy, radiology, and other services.

Dr. Marisela Marrero will become Steward Health Care’s first regional president for the South Florida Region. Marrero will oversee the five hospitals Steward acquired from Tenet Healthcare Corporation last month, including North Shore Medical Center, Coral Gables Hospital, Hialeah Hospital, Palmetto General Hospital in Miami-Dade County, and Florida Medical Center in Broward County.

Dr. Nicolas Madsen will join Children’s Health as co-director of The Heart Center and chief of cardiology. He will also be associate professor of pediatrics and chief of the division of pediatric cardiology within the pediatric group at UT Southwestern Medical Center. He previously served as the Medical Director of the Acute Care Cardiology Unit at Cincinnati Children’s and as an Associate Professor in the University of Cincinnati Department of Pediatrics.

After a tornado destroyed half of Parker University’s buildings, the chiropractic school has completed its South Building, which features state-of-the-art technology in a 25,000 square foot learning space filled with electronic resources.
