How does Houston have so many votes? You can't walk a few blocks in NYC without being near a major medical center. Don't even need a car. You need a car to get to one in the Houston area.

I voted for Houston, New York City, and Boston.

My vote for Houston was because of the Texas Medical Center, which should surely put Houston as one of the top cities in this poll.

New York City deserves the vote because it is the largest city and therefore must have an advanced system of medical facilities.

Lastly, I voted for Boston because it is what I am most familiar with and I consider the care that I have access to here as world-class. Health care is one of the largest industries in Massachusetts. The Longwood Medical area of Boston includes Children's Hospital (one of the top two pediatric hospitals in the country), Brigham and Women's Hospital (one of the top 10 in the nation), Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Harvard Medical School, the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, and other clinics. Also in Boston are Massachusetts General Hospital (another one of the top 10 in the country), the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary (rated very highly for eye, ear, nose, and throat care), Tufts New England Medical Center, and Boston Medical Center. And although they are in the suburbs, the Lahey Clinic in Burlington has at least a local reputation for excellence, and the McLean Hospital in Belmont for psychiatric conditions is also one of the best psychiatric hospitals in the country.

You would have to see it with your own eyes to believe it. I mean it is unbelievable. Just be open minded and look it up you will see.

I've worked there in one of the hospitals.
It's so big, visitors have actually thought that was Houston's downtown/CBD. It's an entirely separate business district about 4-5 miles southwest of downtown.

Boston has some excellent medical facilities that, no coincidence, happen to complement some of the best medical schools in the country.

one medical center doesn't make it number one. It doesn't matter how big it is, it should be based on how far one would need to travel to go to a medical center.
