TEXAS MEDICAL CENTER – 77021, 77030
In 1945 ground broke on the first building for the Texas Medical Center. With a dream to establish a place where anyone could go and receive medical care, the Texas Medical Center is now home to 49 institutions devoted to patient health and well being. These institutions include 13 renowned hospitals and two specialty institutions, two medical schools, four nursing schools, and schools of dentistry, public health, pharmacy, and virtually all health-related careers. The Texas Medical Center was one of the first to establish an air ambulance service and more heart surgeries than anywhere else in the world have been performed here.
