If you plan to use the bus to get home or to work, I would seriously consider the side of town you live or work on. I just found out the hard way that the bus which runs on Fleur Drive only runs at 3:15 am and 3:15 pm Monday through Friday. Now for me to get to and from work on time, I will now need to take Bus 7 and walk to Fleur Drive. DART really needs to reconsider this route. There are a lot of businesses (and the airport) on the south side and these two times just aren't enough. They should run just like all the other buses.

EVERYTHING was excellent EXCEPT for one thing. I suffer from chronic pain. I was in the hospital for 7 weeks on bedrest after a wound surgery. they gave me 4 8mg dilaudid every 3 hrs which made me feel fine. Because of the big dose in the hospital, when I got out, there was NO WAY a pain specialist would prescribe me with anything near that. I got out in may. BEEN IN TERRIBLE PAIN EVER SINCE. DON'T THEY THINK/CARE ABOUT PEOPLES PAIN AFTER THEIR RELEASE? APPARENTLY NOT!!!-travis tigges 515-724-3268

Tips & Advices
Academic medical centers provide the widest range of specialty care treatments, including the latest technological advances, clinical trials, and surgical techniques. In general, an academic medical center is a better choice than a community hospital for complicated treatments or rare diseases. Pediatric intensive care, especially, is usually performed at academic medical centers.
Academic medical centers offer a broad range of specialized services, from allergists to urologists. Some of the larger medical centers have entire hospitals or clinics focused on a particular medical service, such as cancer treatment, though specialties vary among the centers. Patients whose community hospital or local doctors do not have the facilities or expertise to address complex medical conditions can be referred by their primary care physician or local specialist to a major medical center (there are more than a dozen in the United States).
Yes. In addition to their inpatient hospital services, medical centers can offer a wide variety of outpatient services, such as pain clinics, rehabilitation centers, surgery, imaging and laboratory, mental health treatment, and outpatient cancer treatment. Medical groups – doctors in private practice but affiliated with the medical center--will also have offices within the medical center.
Physicians, nurses, physician’s assistants, residents, and attending physicians makeup the clinical staff of an academic medical center.
Medical center accreditation is not required, but most centers work voluntarily toward accreditation because it represents higher standards of healthcare quality and patient safety.
