“The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.”
The Texas Medical Center claims to be the largest medical facility in the world, home to over 50 institutions and thousands of physicians and research scientists. This powerhouse is Houston's largest employer and treats more than 5 million patients annually at facilities such as the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, Memorial Hermann Hospital, St. Luke's Episcopal Hospital, Baylor College of Medicine and The Methodist Hospital System. Packing even more people into the area is Reliant Park, home of the Texans football team and multi-use venues for college sports, concerts and conventions.
