The Dallas medical district has suddenly become one of the hottest construction market in the nation as projects are flourishing all over the place with construction contracts worth near $6 billion. At least $2 billion out of the total, are due to new hospitals being constructed leaded by the $1.27 billion project for Parkland Memorial Hospital. In addition to those $2 billion new outpatient clinics, renovation to local health care providers, and significant investment made by non-profit organization add up to the total amount of money being developed in Dallas. The reason for this construction boom is that the state needs to catch up with years of lack of progress in the health care area although some experts are pointing out that the state need to be aware that if they overbuild, then problems will arrive. The health care boom is also favored by low construction costs and that hospital don't need to prove the necessity of the people before they build.
The health care boom stretches all the way to family clinics, improving technology on health care facilities, medical offices and cancer care centers. This boom includes finishing space that was ready but not completed and some of it just creating space for future tenants.
