Day 28...Texas Medical Center

Thought I would show you
where I am today.
I am Lurch's tour guide
at the Texas Medical Center
in downtown Houston.
Okay...
maybe the Texas Medical Center
doesn't have pigeons...
but here is what they do have...

"The Texas Medical Center started with a dream to create a medical center, where people from all walks of life could have access to the best health care anywhere - whether they were rich, poor, famous, alone, young, or old.

Sixty years since that dream originated, it has been realized many times over. The 47 institutions of the Texas Medical Center each exist to serve all of mankind. On any given day, one can find people from every social circumstance and many of the world's nations seeking treatment at the center's renowned institutions.

Many TMC institutions are working to make the Texas Medical Center quality of care convenient to even more people by placing clinics, offices, and other facilities in neighborhoods throughout Houston and the surrounding communities, and even in other parts of Texas and the world.

In the Texas Medical Center, there is something to meet everybody's needs. Two trauma facilities are located in the center, as are institutions specializing in every imaginable aspect of health care, including care for children, cancer patients, heart care, organ transplantation, terminal illness, mental health, and wellness and prevention.

All 47 of institutions of the Texas Medical Center are not-for-profit, and are dedicated to the highest standards of patient care, research, and education. 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. It is where one of the first, and still the largest, air ambulance service was created; a very successful inter-institutional transplant program was developed; and more heart surgeries are performed than anywhere else in the world.

It's all here, in the Texas Medical Center -- and it's here for everyone." (from Texas Medical Center website)


Yep...

everything is bigger in Texas!
