Why does Houston have so many votes? At least according to U.S. News, they don't even have a single top ranked hospital. Oh no, I questioned something about Houston....

Well, you at least gave us some facts from U.S. News. That's more than someone is willing to do.

Subject Change to the rescue!

How about Baltimore? It deserves a mention for Hopkins, even if it doesn't really compare to others!

not to mention how great it's original building is

and click on QUOTE. That is how you answer somebody. You don't retype it. Whatever comes up is what the OP typed. If you don't read your own posts, or know how to spell, or type, that is not my problem.

Oh btw we do have one ranked at #1.

U.S News ranks University of Texas M.D Anderson Cancer Center #1 for finding different types of cancer, as well as causes, treatment, and symptoms of the disease.

University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, Houston

I said top ranked hospital, not top ranked specialty. #1 would be Johns Hopkins, which, last I checked, was in Baltimore, not Houston.

Most of the top 5 hospitals on these lists seem to be in MD, MA, PA, and NY:

Top American Hospitals - US News Best Hospitals

And oh yeah, NY got #1 at one of those too. Not to mention top 5 in almost every category. TX was only in about 2.

Now your trying to get off topic in this thread.

The Question is:
"Which U.S City has the most developed medical facilities?!?!"

Start a new thread about the best medical facilities somewhere else since your trying to get off the thread topic.
No, Houston hospitals aren't ranked number 1, and hospitals in NY do beat out Houston. However, people forget that the hospitals in TMC each specialize in different types of areas. You have top ranking hospitals in TMC. I just say stop arguing with them because it's only a waste of time and the more you go on the more people will come on here and complain how people from Houston just think they are better and the best.
