I would assume NYC since it is American's biggest city, but Houston has TMC which includes the largest concentration of medical facilities.

They all have good regional facilities as does Denver, which is not on the list. I voted NYC, but LA, Chicago and Boston are good bets, too.

Atlanta is home to the Center for Disease Control. The CDC is the only federal agency not headquartered in the DC area.

Memphis is home to Saint Jude Children's Research Hospital, founded by Danny Thomas.

Both cities draw thousands of people from all over the world to study and do research at those outstanding medical facilities.

Houston also has excellent medical facilities. My brother, who was born with a backwards heart, received outstanding care at Texas Children's Hospital until he died.

South Texas Medical Center in San Antonio has a $14 billion dollar impact on the city annually, home to 45 medical instutions. The second largest Med Center in Texas one of the largest in the U.S.
San Antonio is one of the only cities in the nation with 3 level one trauma centers. The Alamo city is also home to the largest medical school in the world at
Ft.Sam Houston. There is also Brook Amry Medical Center, home of the world known Burn Unit.

Atlanta has excellent medical facilities in both medical research and patient care. Some of Atlanta's best:

-Emory Healthcare operates 4 hospital locations and several clinics, and is a highly regarded institution...as is the Emory University School of Medicine. The Emory hospitals are Crawford Long Hospital, the Emory Clinic, Emory University Hospital, and Wesley Woods Geriatric Center.

-The Centers for Disease Control is an agency of the Department of Health and Human Services that is involved in worldwide research/prevention/education - and sits adjacent to Emory University campus.

-The American Cancer Society and The Arthritis Foundation are two highly recognized Atlanta organizations that focus on research/advocacy/education/rehabilitation.

-Grady Memorial Hospital is a Level 1 Trauma Center and one of the nation's premier public hospitals...Grady works closely with Emory and Morehouse medical schools.

-The Shepherd Spinal Center specializes in rehabilitation of people with spinal cord/brain injuries/multiple sclerosis, and is recognized as one of the nation's top rehabilitation hospitals.

-Other major facilities in both size and quality...Northside Hospital; Piedmont Hospital; Atlanta Medical Center; Dekalb Medical Center; Southern Regional Medical Center; St. Josephs Hospital; Kennestone Hospital; South Fulton Medical Center; Children's Healthcare of Atlanta; Atlanta VA Medical Center; and Scottish Rite Children's Hospital.

That's about all I have right now.

I don't know what you mean by most developed.

Houston has the largest medical center in the world. Very established, like another downtown entirely. So I voted for that.

You can find excellent medical care in many US cities.

Yes, San Antonio is very up-and-coming with this.

Between Houston, Dallas and San Antonio, Texas is a great place to work in the medical field or get medical care.

Another recent thread with hospital rankings, Houston hospitals dominated in this part of the country.
