Jim Parobek serves as president of Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas, having moved into that role in June 2020 after serving as interim president since April 2019.
Texas Health Dallas and Clements University Hospital are run under a Joint Operating Agreement between Texas Health Resources and UT Southwestern.
While at Texas Health Dallas, Parobek has been instrumental in expanding integration with UT Southwestern Medical Center. He has worked with a strong executive team and with physicians on the medical staff to enhance clinical care and experience at the facility.
Since joining Texas Health in 2014, first at Texas Health Physicians Group and later in leadership roles with Southwestern Health Resources, Parobek had a significant impact on Texas Health’s operations by unifying the oversight and coordination of all physician contracting, workforce development and recruitment, integrating Texas Health physician activity within the Southwestern Health Resources Physician Network, and advancing the Joint Operating Company.
He reports to John Warner, M.D., executive vice president, health system affairs, UT Southwestern Medical Center. Kirk King, executive vice president and hospital channel chief operating officer for Texas Health, provides additional oversight.
Parobek pursues his passions outside of work with the same energy he shows on the job. He is married with two children and enjoys adventure travel, golf, hiking the U.S. national parks, taking in the Texas music scene and cheering for his favorite sports teams.
