Hospital Description

Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center is the primary teaching hospital for the McGovern Medical School at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston. It is one of only two certified Level I trauma centers in Houston and provides a number of medical services to the residents of Houston. Six campuses of Memorial Hermann are recognized by the American Nurse Credentialing Center as Magnet recognition for excellence in nursing, including Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center. Ranked among America’s Best Hospitals for rehabilitation and a variety of specializations not limited to cardiology, ear, nose, and throat, and GI surgery, Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital has also been recognized among the top hospitals in pediatric cardiology and neurology.

Located in the 4th largest city in the nation, Houston provides much diversity and opportunity. Home to Nasa’s Johnson Space Center, aeronautics are just one of the industries in this economy; manufacturing, transportation, and energy all contribute to its broad industrial base. The city is one of the most ethnic and racially diverse in the U.S., adding to a rich mix of cultures and backgrounds in the neighborhoods of the downtown areas. Considering the lower cost of living and the thriving job market, Houston typically ranks high on living with its numerous green spaces. Commuting is not as easy in this metropolis, and the quality of education and crime rate are both things to consider, as well as air pollution if you have any health conditions such as asthma. Summers are typically hot and humid, winters mild, with annual flooding issues as it is gulf coast climate.
