On the ground floor of Parkland Hospital, inside the radiology waiting room, is the only evidence of what happened here almost fifty years ago.
“I started work at Parkland Hospital in 1972 as a bio-medical engineering technician,” said former employee Don Pyeatt.
That’s about the time Parkland was preparing to expand and demolish Trauma Room 1, where doctors treated countless patients, including President John F. Kennedy a decade earlier.
Pyeatt captured the only known images of the treatment room — eight snapshots — where history happened.
