We have both been posting on the forum long enough for you to know I'm not a troll on here. I'm seriously trying my best to get a point across to you but it doesn't seem to be working so I should probably just give up. If you think the Texas Medical Center is one hospital and refuse to believe otherwise than I'm fighting a losing battle here. I'm just going to have to let this one go.

Houston no doubt. Houston has the most developed medical centers than any other city. The Texas Medical Center will double its current size in 2012. There are more than 20 medical facalities u/c, at least 10 recently completed and, much MUCH more planned for that area. Also there are more medical facilities in west Houston off of I-10 plus UTMB in Galveston. This is no competition for which U.S city has the most developed medical facilieties... Houston wins no matter what.

The Texas Meical Center is like Dubai, new devolepment everywhere in that area.

I believe austinguy might be txguy and the other random dude (not Westhou) maybe a troll.

This is getting old. I really don't get where you are coming from. We get that you want New York City to win every poll but I think you are just going to have to accept a loss here. You can blame it on us making multiple accounts in order to make yourself feel better but do a little research and you will see why Houston is winning. New York City clobbers Houston in just about every category but this one.

This is my first time posting in a Houston thread.

I seen you're recent post and don't see why you won't give up. Houston wins this and I don't see why you keep defending Long Island and NY.

Well that does it! You won! One questionable anecdote that is completely unrelated yet twisted into meaning what you want it to mean.

can we all get back on topic here. we don't need multiple pages of this. how about you just defend the city of your choice by posting stats and so fourth instead of getting off topic with your silly accusations.

Yes, let's please get back on topic.

But I should add, anyone can google "Texas Medical Center" or other similar terms and come upon this thread in city-data. City-data threads often show up at the top of search results on google. The new members could be TMC workers just defending their place after looking around on google for something else, who knows.
