I'm currently a phlebotomy student living in coastal South Carolina. I'm moving in a year to somewhere in the Dallas/Ft Worth area. Where I live depends on where I get a job, so location isn't really a problem. I'd like to work closer to Dallas.

So, my question is: what are the best hospitals as far as employment? Or which hospitals are in bad areas and should be avoided?

Thanks.

Hospitals in the DFW area:

Baylor Health Care System - has many hospitals throughout the area including its flagship hospital by downtown Dallas - BUMC

Methodist Health - several hospitals in the area includign its flagship hospital south of downtown - Methodist Dallas

Texas Health - many hospitals in the area with flag ship at Dallas Presbyterian or Harris Methodist in FW

Medical City - don't think it's a major player with the above.

UT Southwestern has 2 hospitals (Zale and St. Paul) right by Parkland

County Hospitals: Parkland in Dallas and John Peter Smith (JPS) in Fort Worth

There are more out there but these are the major ones that come to mind.

Best of luck.

I work for Texas Health Presbyterian in Flower Mound, TX and Baylor McKinney in McKinney, TX.

Both seem like great places to work.

I know Parkland has good opportunities. It's the county hospital of Dallas.

As is often stated, try to line up a job first then deal with the details later. You need to find a hospital that's a good fit for you. While it may be Parkland and all that goes with a county hospital, it may also be a puff private suburban hospital that suits you better. You have to walk the halls and get the feel .

Exactly. Also know that a great place to be the patient may not be your ideal place to work and vice versa.

I take it you've never been there. It's a good hospital, very large complex, nice folks there, and very good Drs. I love it there.

For phlebotomy, also look at Labcorp and Quest Diagnostics. They are the major labs in DFW and have many locations. ProLab and MetroStat are mobile phlebotomy services.

Thanks for all the replies! I will definitely keep a lot of these in mind -- especially LabCorp and Quest.
