I did'nt say Houston Hospitals were ranked at #1. I said M.D Anderson was at #1 in Cancer.

Anyways thats off topic like I said before; ok I, will end the argument with them...

They misunderstand the fact that some of America's best hospitals are located all within less than 10 minutes from eachother which equates to TMC.

Buffalo - The BNMC - Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus is expanding everyday. With 5+ new 10-story high rises planned to start construction this spring (research institutues, global vascular center, UB medical school, and a new BGH ER), this area near downtown is progressing rapidly, employing over 10,000 jobs already, it is one of the fastest growing medical facilities in the nation. Much construction has been implemented and completed, including the world's first Cancer research Center in the BNMC as well. With the University at Buffalo's medical school moving there as well soon, one can only fathom the amount of growth that will be seen here and is seeing. A very well developed medical and research center to say the least.

The BNMC has already remarkably completed two well known magnificent accomplishments in its ER- Richard Zednik who slit his throat and was near death at a Sabres home game was rushed to Buffalo General Hospital (a large 16-story tower consisting of various medical facilities and ER), and Kaleida Heath, the regions largest employer and anchor in the BNMC, also cured Kevin Everett from his near death experience with his neck/back in the Bills football game. The same Healthcare system, just minutes away from the ever growing campus (another hospital is moving there in the next few years to provide a condensed medical corridor).

St Louis has several top hospitals, including Barnes-Jewish, Cardinal Glennon Children's Hospital, Children's Hospital (part of Barnes), etc. But as with most polls, I assume most votes are people voting for their own city.

One phrase to all Houstonians: "quality over quantity".

According to U.S. News, Baltimore has the best single hospital, but overall, Boston, LA, and the Bay Area are the only ones with more than 1 hospital on the list so I guess they win.

And to NYers: you don't have to be and aren't the best at everything...just accept it. Yes, it's true. There are other cities in this country that compete with and even beat you in many aspects.

I voted for Boston, Baltimore, and Houston cuz theyre the only ones I knew for a fact had excellent facilities although I would assume most big cities do. I am a little disappointed to see how many of Boston's votes were from Bostonians; I thought our fair city had a good reputation in this field.

Ooops sorry aout the last photo.

How does New York's and Boston's medical facilities look?

It should be on the poll, home to UT Health Science Center at South Texas med Center, and 45 medical instutions, second largest in Texas.
Plus San Antonio is home to BAMC, the world reknown Burn unit and the largest medical school in the world at Ft. Sam Houston. San Antonio is one of the only cities in the country with 3 level one trauma Centers, Houston has 2. San Antonio is a military medical hub.


This should put a foot in your mouth. (:

#4 Level one tramua center to be built in S.A.

“San Antonio deserves this facility because it is the center of military medicine and so many active duty service personnel and veterans live in the area,” Sen. Hutchison said

I guess the big question is...What did the OP mean by "most developed"? It doesn't sound like he was asking for the best medical facilities or the top ranked ones. It might mean the highest concentration of medical facilities?

Clarification please?

Yes. The one who started this thread asked which city has the "most developed medical facilities" I don't see why people keep posting the "best medical facilities". The person that started this thread did'nt ask for the best medical facilities.
